How long have you lived in Crested Butte?
I have lived in the Gunnison Valley for 9 years, 3 of those in Crested Butte.

Why did you choose to work with people with disabilities?
I feel really fortunate to live in such an amazing place and do the things that I get to do, and I wanted to share that with others.  I knew about adaptive from seeing them out on the hill.  I thought it looked like a great program that I wanted to be a part of. 

How did you come to work with the ASC? How long have you been here?
I volunteered for the 2012/13 winter season, and found out about the Volunteer to Instructor Program. After a few volunteer days with some amazing participants and Instructors I really felt a connection with the program.  I wanted to devote more time to the program so I decided to apply to be an Instructor.  This will be my second year with ASC, and my first as an instructor.
