Karissa was born and raised here in the beautiful town of Coeur d’Alene. Others describe her as dedicated, determined, loyal, responsible, reasonable and dorky. Her favorite things in life are anything “punny”, laughter and the sound of rain on a metal roof. She is really logical minded, and delicious food is the way to her heart. To pass the time she enjoys remodeling her house, hiking and chasing waterfalls. She loves a challenge and strives to be the best version of herself that she can be. Her goals are to have a successful herb garden, travel often, and be the example she wants her children to see.
