About Me

A Colorado native, I was born on the Front Range, and raised in the Grand Junction area. I earned my B.A. in English from Colorado State University, and my M.A. in International Relations from Hult International Business School in London, England. When I'm not working with aspiring new Mavericks, you'll find me traveling the world, enjoying the Colorado outdoors with a hike or bike ride, or relaxing with a good book. I am based on the Front Range, and live in Broomfield with my husband, John, and Labrador puppy, Kea.

Favorite thing about Grand Junction

The Grand Valley will always feel like home to me. I love the small town friendliness combined with the offerings and activities of a larger city. The Colorado National Monument is one of my favorite places in the world, and hiking up to Independence Rock is a must for me each time I visit. I also enjoy strolling through the many local shops and savoring a meal at one of the delicious restaurants in downtown Grand Junction.
