About Me

I was born and raised in Grand Junction and I graduated from Grand Junction High School in 2010. I played collegiate soccer at Mesa Community College in Mesa, Arizona for two years and then at Northwest Christian University in Eugene, Oregon for 1 year before returning to Junction to finish my degree at Colorado Mesa University. In 2015, I graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with a concentration in Management.

Favorite thing about Grand Junction

Growing up in the Grand Valley, I never knew how fortunate I was to live in western Colorado until I went away briefly for my first few years in college. I now fully appreciate all of the incredible qualities of my hometown. I really enjoy the outdoor activities year-round from skiing and mountain biking to hiking and rafting. Here are my favorite things to do around the Grand Valley:

Fruita - Biking on the riverfront trails and eating at the Hot Tomato--the best pizza place in town.
Grand Junction - Walking downtown during the farmers market and other special events.
Palisade - Going to the Palisade Peach Festival and exploring the many vineyards around the area.
