Personal interests

After spending numerous summers and vacations visiting the West to feed my love of the mountains, I moved to Colorado in 2004 to pursue a doctoral degree in psychology.  I have an extensive history in equestrian sports and rode dressage to the upper levels with Olympic trainers around the country. In 2008 I decided to take a break from the horse business and have been immersing myself in rock climbing, yoga, and traipsing the Front Range with my wee dog, Lola.
