About Me

I was born and raised in Aurora, Colorado. Growing up my family was huge into sports and activities. I did everything and anything from horseback riding to playing ice hockey for 6 years. When I graduated from Rangeview High School, I attended CMU from 2013-2017 and absolutely loved my experience. While at CMU I studied Mass Communication and was heavily involved in the Student Life Department. I worked there for all 4 years that I attended. I was a part of many organizations and clubs and was able to plan many exciting events for the University such as Beer Fests, Concerts, and more. My senior year I was awarded the Maverick of the Year award. I am excited to take on this new role as an admissions counselor back in my home town to spread the best kept secret on the western slope... CMU!

Favorite things about Grand Junction

I love to eat 7th Street Deli. Mt. Garfield is the hardest hike I've ever done. If you get a chance to hike Craig Crest on the Grand Mesa do it! Early spring and late fall are the most beautiful times to go. The best time to float the river is at the end of the May and beginning of June. My favorite float is from Palisade to the botanical gardens in Grand Junction.
