Born and raised in Colorado and attended Colorado State University where I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies. My husband and I have a daughter, Avery, and a son, Nathan. My husband runs an epoxy flooring company with his brother, while I am the Marketing Director for several local businesses. My husband was a Combat Medic in the Army and served for just over six years. As a former military spouse, I am passionate about connecting with active duty military, veterans, and their families. During my husband's time in service, we were very lucky to have a great experience. However, I know that we were the exception as we watched several friends from the military struggle both during their time in service, as well as, time after they got out of the military and I believe in the power of a strong community to strengthen everyone around us. I enjoy time with my family, being active, and connecting with people in the community we live in.
