What's your favorite quote or something that you live by? 
It’s not a quote, but I live by the belief that soup is food perfected. It’s power packed with nutrients, can utilize almost any ingredient, and hits just right on a cold day.

How long have you been skiing / snowboarding? 
Being hired at the ASC was my official introduction to both sports, and I could not be more excited!

How did you come to work with the Adaptive Sports Center? How long have you lived in Crested Butte? 
When my wife and I moved to Crested Butte in 2020, the first question people would ask me was what degree I had recently graduated with. After a quick description of what I had studied the most common response was “Oh! You should work for Adaptive! That would be right up your alley!” Enough people suggested I apply that I started to casually watch the website for available positions. When I saw the Development Coordinator position, I hopped right on it!

Why did you choose to work with people with disabilities? 
I have several family members that have been kept from outdoor recreation for years as a result of their disabilities. Working for a company that enables courage, growth, and quality experiences for everyone that comes through the door, regardless of situation, is incredibly meaningful to me and my personal relationships.

What's your favorite thing about working at the Adaptive Sports Center? 
It’s great to find a work “home” with such supportive coworkers and incredibly fun/engaging participants. Also, every time I read a newsletter, pamphlet, or flyer about the ASC, I learn something new and exciting that my company does.

What do you do in your free time? 
I love to rock climb and canyoneer! If it’s a sport, and it involve ropes, knots, and anchors, I’ll be there in a heartbeat!

What's a fun fact about yourself? 
I have 8 years of formal ballroom dance training, including 2 National Championships during the run.
