Mindi moved to Moonlight Falls with her friend Tonya and the ghost of Tonya's deceased sister Maggie. There she met Goodwin Goode Jr and began dating him, while Tonya began dating Goodwin's half-brother Joe. Mindi became pregnant after Goodwin proposed, and they married the next day. Mindi gave birth to Nick, and Charlie Lorent (who happened to be around when Mindi went in to labour) took Mindi to hospital. Mindi, Goodwin, and Nick later moved to Appaloosa Plains. After deciding that they don't like Appaloosa Plains, they move to Starlight Shores.
