"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."  - Nelson Mandela

Where were you born and/or raised?
Born and raised in Haverhill, MA

How long have you lived in Crested Butte?
I moved to Crested Butte in September of 2007.  

Why did you choose to work with people with disabilities?
I choose to work with people with disabilities because I feel like I have a lot to give in this life and I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping others.

How did you come to work with the ASC? How long have you been here?
My first winter in CB I had a really good friend who did an internship with Adaptive.  After hearing her stories and seeing her on the hill, I thought, "This is something I could love."  The next winter I volunteered, then the next, and the next.  My third winter volunteering I participated in Adaptive's Volunteer to Instructor training program.  The following winter I was hired as an instructor, and I am currently in my third season as an Adaptive instructor!
