About Me

I grew up in Fort Collins, Colorado and moved to Grand Junction to attend CMU! I discovered right away that I love living in western Colorado. I earned my bachelor's degree in Spanish with a minor in international studies. I worked a lot in college and I went on two international trips. I studied abroad in Costa Rica and I did a publicity photography project in Nicaragua. I have worked on a college campus ever since I was 16 years old!

Favorite thing about Grand Junction

The first hike I did in Grand Junction was Mount Garfield for extra credit in my freshman biology class. It is a challenging hike with amazing views of the Colorado National Monument, the Grand Mesa, and the entire Grand Valley. My favorite place to be in the Grand Valley (besides the CMU campus) is the town of Palisade. I love all of the fruit we grow in western Colorado — especially the peaches and apples. My favorite event is the Peach Festival every August!
