It's very cold here in winter so Minnesota doesn't appeal to everyone but I personally love Minnesota summers and winters. I love summers because it's not too hot here and I love winter because the skiing, hot chocolate and below freezing temperatures make life here quite an adventure!

My previous employment has been very helpful and the employers have been great and understanding.
Everything that someone may need is less than a 20 minute drive away and there are other forms of transportation to get you there.
