I grew up in Northwest New Jersey, and grew up skiing. My father opened a ski and sport shop when I was 15 and cemented my love of the sport. After graduating high school I taught skiing at the local ski areas until a childhood friend who had moved to Colorado called and convinced me to check out the skiing there.
I moved to Summit County in 1975 and have been in Colorado ever since. I worked in food and beverage for 30 years and decided I needed a career change. I began working as an administrative assistant. In 2016 I started having trouble breathing in the higher elevation, so since my daughter and grandkids lived in Fort Collins, it seemed like the ideal place to relocate. I have worked for CPA’s for the last 8 years, but again decided on a career change. I was drawn to Colorado in Motion by the job description and working more closely with people.
