What Is One Special Thing About the Place You Grew Up?

I know it sounds funny living in a state that has so much sun, but one of the many things I ACTUALLY miss about the Midwest is the thunderstorms. There is nothing like the sound and smell of a torrential downpour in the summer. I used to love to lay and watch the rain and lightning and hear the loud bursts of thunder that often times, shook the house. There was something very calming about it.

Number of Years in Real Estate:

4 years

Hobbies:

Hiking, recently trying on mountain biking, camping, traveling the world, trying new restaurants/food, skiing, listening to a good podcast, antiquing, walking around new places I haven’t yet discovered, riding my bike around town. More recently, river rafting!

Describe Yourself In 5 Words:

Outgoing, Driven, Sarcastic, Happy, Authentic

Favorite Colorado Past Time:

Honestly, probably hiking. I like it because you can do it alone, and sometimes I just need that.

Favorite Place to Grab a Drink:

This is hard because it is so weather dependent for me. If I can be on a patio, I will be. Among a few, Postino, Family Jones, El Five, Los Chingones.

One Unusual Thing About You:

I like to dip my popcorn in Sriracha.

What Is One Item on Your Bucket List:

I’d really like to learn to speak Spanish and sail around the world.

What Is Your Proudest Accomplishment and Why?

Honestly, I am so happy I gave myself the opportunity to travel to so many different countries in my twenties. Understanding and observing other cultures is so important to me, and so vital to our understanding of the world. I’m grateful for all that I have, but more grateful for what I have been lucky enough to experience in my lifetime.

How Do You Define Success?

For myself, I define success by my ability to enjoy my life. And candidly, sometimes lately I forget to stop and do that. My dad says, “You’re always under construction” and I believe that. Work is work, but what is it if you can’t stop and enjoy your life?

What Career Path Would You Have Chosen If You Didn’t Become a Real Estate Broker?

That is hard to say. Honestly, nothing has felt more right. I’ve had several different jobs and finally decided on this one.  I think I may try to be an Interior Designer if I had chosen something else.

If You Could Master Any Skill That You Don’t Currently Have, What Would It Be and Why?

I wish I felt comfortable sailing alone and understood how that all worked. I’ve always wanted to sail around the world.

What Is the Most Adventurous Thing You’ve Ever Done?

This is a hard one. I’ve been sky diving and bungee jumping and I’m currently getting scuba certified. That said, I think I felt one of my bigger accomplishments was going to Thailand and Vietnam alone last year. Solo travel is so invigorating!

If You Could Have Dinner with Anyone, Who Would It Be and Why?

Honestly, it may be Tanya Aebi. She sailed around the world alone when she was 18 – that was in the mid-80s. I read about her when I was younger and it always intrigued me.

What Is Your Favorite Holiday Tradition?

I come from a big family. We have a lot of traditions, but the older I get, the more those are starting to shift, especially being away from home. Everyone is getting married and having kids. We always have a dinner with each side of the family, as I am fortunate that most of them live back in Indiana, so it’s easy to get together.

That all said, I think that one of our best family traditions is the Thanksgiving Reunion on my dad’s side. I don’t know that it is always my favorite, but the history of it is so neat. The reunion has been going on since 1865, the year the Civil War ended. There are three families under my (however many greats-) grandfather, William Jackson, from 1865, so we call it the Jackson – Mock – Clark Reunion. Our families live across the country and every year I’d say the turnout is between 60-80 people that have carried this tradition on since then! We meet in different cities across the country where we all are from and usually learn some piece of history about the family.

Some of my relatives have spent a bunch of time creating the family tree, which takes up a very large wall and is ever-changing with babies and marriages continually being added. I have 16 cousins on my Dad’s side and many of them have kids. Getting everyone together can be difficult sometimes, but when we are all there it is really great! It’s getting to a point where my generation has to start carrying on the tradition, and I am expecting to host it here in Denver in the next couple of years, which will be exciting.

The reunion usually lasts for 3 days. The first night the host family has a big chili cook-off and then the following day we meet at some hotel or restaurant and have a large catered meal. The last day is usually spent exploring the history of our family and ancestors in the city we are in. I always really appreciate it.

What’s the Best Concert You’ve Ever Been To?

May have been Portugal the Man at the Bluebird circa 2011.

What Made It So Special?

The lights and setting, but also likely my interest in them at the time!

If You Could Have Any Superpower What Would It Be and Why?

I’ve always wanted to be able to fly. Planes make me stuffy, and what a view you’d have!
