Personal Points of Interest:

I love all things about being a Colorado. I grew up in Colorado, and I spend as much time as I can outdoors skiing, hiking with my partner, and playing with my two dogs. I’m an avid Harry Potter fan and love to travel.  I am a die-hard Bronco fan and love going to Broncos and Rockies games throughout the year!

Personal Points of Interest:

We love living in Golden, CO! I have a very smart and active girl, and a wonderful husband who is also a Mines graduate. We spend most of our time on sports fields somewhere or doing fun activities. I enjoy a lot of different things, especially traveling. We have a pet rabbit. I am a bit of an organic food nut.
