I believe in America. I believe we are the best. I believe we're number one. And I won't apologize for that. My husband and I are survivors. We fought tooth and nail to get where we are today. How? The old-fashioned way, hard work, and a can-do attitude. And here in the great State of Iowa, no less, where all great battles begin.
