About me

My reason for starting MTdawn:

After many years of working from home, the one thing I really noticed that I missed was having a personal connection with people. I am an introvert by nature (which can make it’s own problems) and the pandemic didn’t help because it made people so much more wary of each other. So, when I started MTdawn my main objective was to regain that connection, with all you wonderful people.

A little about me:

I am an Idahoan by birth and grew up very poor. At one time there were 7 of us living in a 31ft travel trailer. I learned early in life, that life’s not fair, and working hard would be the best bet to make my situation better. At the age of 16, I got my GED, and worked, and worked, and worked, to help support my family. When I was 19, I met my husband and after just 10 days (yes – days, not dates) we were married and have been together over 20 years!

I went to college and got my RHIT (Registered Health Information Technician) degree in Idaho, and after a little stint living in New Mexico, I started working for a large hospital in western Montana. A few years later we moved to a small town in Ravalli County, and I had our daughter.

I personally have been all over the western US, and lived in many states as a child. As an adult my husband and I came to call Idaho, New Mexico, and Montana home. We love our little slice of heaven that we have – and some day hope to have a bigger slice so we can expand some of the things we love, like gardening and our quacky little ducks.

After 12 years of working as a medical coder, my time came to an end when my job was outsourced. And, after a little drama – you can read about it in the blog – I finally decided to walk away and start a new journey. I definitely have a lot to learn about blogging still, but I hope you will be patient – and join me on the journey!

I hope you have a great day!
