I studied Business Administration and Accounting at the University of Kansas and proceeded working in the banking and insurance industries as an Internal Auditor in Kansas. When the mountains called, I came to Colorado to work for an agricultural lender in Denver. Colorado is my chosen home! In more recent years, I found a LOVE for real estate and am an active member of the Pikes Peak Association of Realtors serving fantastic clients in Colorado Springs and its surrounding area. As we are particularly fond of vintage properties, my husband and I designed and built a home in Palmer Lake inspired by the Mid-Century Modern era. Together, we are raising three children that keep us busy with sporting events to various educational extracurriculars. Volunteering is a family affair for us. We continue to devote much of our time to our church outreach efforts, Tri-Lakes Cares (a local need assistance organization) and our local school district. I am a prodigious supporter of education and have committed to the D-38 school district in several capacities. More recently I was appointed to the American Heart Association Heart Ball Executive Committee. Spending time with my mountain loving friends and family, hiking 14ers, skiing, knitting, gardening and watching my kids’ sporting events are among my favorite past times.
