How long have you lived in Crested Butte?
I moved to Crested Butte in May 2013. So just about three years now.
Why did you choose to work with people with disabilities?
I have always had a passion for helping others. I never knew adaptive sports or therapeutic recreation even existed until my junior year of college. But the moment I changed my major and started fieldwork, I knew I was in a field where I belonged. I love being able to help people enjoy the things I love to do.
How did you come to work with the ASC? How long have you been here?
I was an intern during Summer 2013 and have been here ever since.
How long have you been skiing/snowboarding?
I have been snowboarding for 5 years and skiing for 3.
What's your favorite restaurant in Crested Butte?
That is a tough one! I love going to the Brick and knowing I'll run into a friend or two.
What is your favorite ski resort?
Crested Butte is my first Colorado ski resort, and I absolutely love it! But I definitely would like to explore some more ski areas! I've actually only skied the east. I have to say my favorite is a tiny ski hill in central New York called Greek Peak. It's where I found my passion for adaptive sports!
