Where were you born and/or raised?
I’m from a Dairy Farm in Morrisville, NY. Just turn right on the first road as you come into town from the big hill. Go past two barns on the right, one on the left and we will be the farm on the right just after the electrical substation.
How long have you lived in Crested Butte?
I started as an intern in the summer of 2012 and just move back here to work in November 2013.
Why did you choose to work with people with disabilities?
Not really knowing what I wanted to do in college I would answer the question of “what do you want to do?” with “I want to help people have fun.” Come to find out there was a degree with that exact criteria, AND real jobs along with it. Since then I have done my best to become as immersed in the profession as possible. Since my time working with people with disabilities, I have volunteered/worked in adaptive sports for the summer and winter as well as advocacy roles.
How did you come to work with the ASC? How long have you been here?
I started as an intern and then a year later I applied for a new position in the summer of 2013 and Bam! Employed at the Adaptive Sports Center. I have been here on a more permanent basis since November.
How long have you been skiing/snowboarding?
10 years 35 weeks 6 days 21 hours (Subject to change)
