I’ve spent the past year off the road working on my second solo record, which is due for release later this year!! You can find lots of updates on that on my Patreon page.
Outside of music, you can usually find me working out at the gym or crushing a Body Shred challenge, playing mom to our little family of rescue animals, experimenting with healthy recipes in the kitchen or watching wrestling with my Josh. Your turn!! Introduce yourself in the comments and tell me something about you.”
