My name is Karlie and I am from Fargo, North Dakota. I am a psychology major because it is my passion and an English minor because I can't keep my nose out of the books. Being a former hockey player, I still love to catch a game whenever I can, but when it is warm, you can usually find me out on a lake somewhere.
