My family is originally from Virginia where I started my life off as a military brat. It took us being stationed in Colorado one time for us to fall in love with the mountains and find a way to move here permanently. I have spent most of my youth and adulthood under the shadow of Pikes Peak, America’s Mountain before following my dream of living in a mountain community. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve lived all over the U.S. and even spent a year in the Dominican Republic, but Colorado has always had my heart and called me home.
