She wanted to be that person that helped someone go from hurt to feeling awesome!
Paige’s hobbies outside of work include camping with my family (total of 76) in Okoboji, listening to classic rock, binge watching any James Bond movie or That 70’s show. She looks forward to meeting you and helping you move forward each day.
