My Family moved to Torrington where I became Director of Goshen County's Big Brothers Big Sisters Program before getting involved with the GEAR UP Program. I enjoy reading, hunting, fishing, and camping with my family. I have traveled to South America, Europe, and Africa; I look forward to visiting the rest of the continents soon.

I grew up in the Big Horn Mountains and I hope to always live in Wyoming. I moved to Torrington in order to attend college. Even though I did not complete my degree in veterinary technology, I learned a great deal. I have had many interesting jobs which include being a Family Teacher for St. Joseph's Children's Home and a Cadre Team Leader for Wyoming Youth Challenge Program. I returned to EWC and earned my Associates degree in Business Administration and am now working on a family life while looking toward a Bachelors degree through the online Outreach Program of the University of Wyoming. Something you didn't know about me: I play the Irish Tin Whistle.
