BA-Organizational Communications, Western State Colorado University
MEd-Higher Education Administration, Washington State University

Personal Points of Interest:
I have a thing for C states, having grown up in Connecticut, Colorado and lived in California for 7+ years.  I have lived outside of a c state too with a 4 year stint in Washington state (the Idaho side).  I like the slightly slower speed of the west and I love the mountains- thus returning to Colorado after having been gone a while.  I am a mom of a cute little boy- Cooper who is just a bundle of fun.  I very much enjoy being active and outdoors.  I train for Triathlons in the spring months and compete all summer along with my hubby.   The family also loves to build things typically Halloween inspired but open to many other projects as well.

Personal Points of Interest:

Originally from Minnesota, I love winter! Moving to Colorado has been a kind of home coming, as my husband is from this lovely state. My little family includes my husband Zachary and our dog Spike. We love to hike, camp, explore, and try lots of new foods. We are truly thrilled to be able to do all of the things we love here!

Personal Points of Interest: 
I love all things about being a Coloradoan and grew up here skiing, hiking and being outdoors. I’m an avid Harry Potter fan and have been to several Potter attractions across the world including the WB Studio Tour in Leavesden, England, The Elephant House (the birth place of Harry Potter where JK Rowling wrote the first book) in Edinburgh, Scotland, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park in Orlando, and many more! I love to travel, continentally and internationally, with my husband. I’ve been to Scotland, England, Ireland, Spain, France, Germany, Malta, and hopefully Italy next! I am a die-hard Bronco fan and love going to Broncos and Rockies games throughout the year!

Personal Points of Interest:
I'm originally from Southern California and grew up 10 miles from Huntington Beach and Seal Beach.  My claim to fame was my first job at age 18-I was employed by Disneyland where I worked in Fantasyland, Tomorrowland, and at Country Bear Jamboree!  My hobbies are reading, sewing, camping, and traveling.  But most importantly are my extraordinary grandkids-they come before all other interests!
