I first saw the beautiful state of Colorado on a family road trip when I was 12 years old. The mountains looked like storm clouds in the distance and the sky was the most incredible shade of blue I'd ever seen outside a box of crayons. I promised  myself that I would live here someday. Years later I graduated from Michigan State University, tossed my dog in the car and headed west. Since then my life has been full of great adventures. The best of which are shared with my three incredible daughters and husband Glenn. We love to hike, camp, fish and go ghost busting.

My favorite drink: is camping with a frosty beer sipped through a strawberry twizzler. Always a classy move.
