Motherhood, adventure, amazing friends and family, fresh powder, divine inspiration, the majestic Rocky Mountains and a fuzzy, white lap dog…what more could a girl ask for? Ok, maybe a laptop, cup of coffee and the perfect forum to publish her thoughts on life – and she found that too!
Can I just say how truly blessed I feel!?
As a Colorado native, I had the privilege of growing up with fourteeners in every direction and my all-time fav ski area just minutes from my front door. I’m forever grateful to my parents for providing me the perfect locale to develop my spirit of outdoor enthusiasm…in the Heart of the Rockies.
After receiving a B.S. in business marketing from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, a venture north would lead me to the English Department at the University of Wyoming. A position working with the array of intriguing characters sparked my curiosity and left me with a forever-love for the art of writing.
Back at home in Colorado, I have the best job I could ever ask for – mother of two wonderful children. I live in a marvelous neighborhood, just around the corner from the kids’ elementary school. Taking in the beauty of each new morning as we walk together the couple of blocks – far enough to provide invaluable bonding time and yet short enough to make the trek in snow – is just one of the virtues of a life well-lived.
I am ever thankful for the many opportunities I receive…editorial reviews to keep us all entertained and freelance marketing to sharpen my professional skills. I am absolutely thrilled to call myself a Mama…not just to Silas and Noelle, but as part of the remarkable Denver Post’s Mile High Mamas team.
