Right here in Denver, Colorado!
Being a 3rd generation native Coloradoan, one of the most special things is getting to experience the same places that the two generations before me got to experience! The same schools, restaurants, landmarks, etc. It is also so amazing to meet people that know my family from way back in the day! Oh, and the snowcapped mountains… they’re pretty special too.

Re-learning to ski as an adult, attending Broncos games (proud season ticket holder), hiking, bike riding and walking around the city, the occasional Netlfix binge, travelling with and without my kiddo, exploring Denver’s expanding food scene with friends.
Funny, loyal, quick-witted, driven, problem-solver
This year I found matching costumes for me and my daughter, so though it hasn’t happened yet… this year’s costume is my favorite!

I graduated top of my class in statistic from college (I mean, there were only two of us, but I did beat him).
I am on the board of a local charity that helps single parents keep their homes in safe living condition (www.BeTheGift.com). My daughter and I also bake cookies and distribute them at the homeless day shelter near our house.
I like to gain bits of inspiration from many people around me. My mother and grandmother inspired me to be a strong independent woman. My dad inspired me to create a strong financial future for myself. My daughter inspires me to be tenacious and never give up. I am inspired by those that aren’t afraid to stand up for what they believe in. I am inspired by strangers showing kindness.
The number of times that I have been able to turn lemons into lemonade.
Being able to have time to do the things that I love without sacrificing work. And the ability to have work be on the list of the things I love!
I always wanted to be a high school math teacher!
Sewing. I have friends and family that are excellent at designing and making amazing creations and this is something that I’ve always wanted to do! Oh, and to save some money on alterations and be able to do them at home would be amazing!
Paragliding in California three years ago – what a rush!!
My grandfather. Though we had dinner together every week, I didn’t know that our last one was going to be the last one. I want a do-over.
Many years ago I received quite an unattractive hat as a gift. It was hysterical and became an ongoing joke between my sister and I. Ever since then, we add embellishments to it, wrap it and re-gift it to each other when we least expect it. Most recently, I brought it on a family vacation and had it delivered to her room.
Though not necessarily a favorite band, Blues Traveler at Red Rocks on 4th of July back in 1997 was the best! My mother and I decided that day that we should go, drove up on a whim, scalped tickets and soaked up all that is Red Rocks! We could see so many firework displays on the horizon. It was amazing! Musically, probably Jethro Tull, also at Red Rocks!
I would want to be Goldie Hawn in Overboard. She loses her memory, starts all over, finds love and happiness and THEN finds out she is a gagillionaire!
