What is your favorite outdoor activity to do in Colorado and why?
Everyone close to me will tell you I spend my time riding horses and working on my farm. My husband, John, and two boys love showing livestock and horses as well.
Do you have any pets, how many and what are their names?
I have two black labs – Cinch and Josie.
Are you from Colorado? If not, where did you grow up? What is your favorite thing about where you grew up?
I am from Wyoming and my favorite part of my beautiful, home state are the wide open spaces.
If you could have lunch with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I would love to eat lunch with my past grandmother. She had such a positive attitude and strong faith; I miss her every day.
Why do you enjoy working at The Youth Clinic?
The best part of working at The Youth Clinic is watching children and families grow through the years.
What advice do you have for your patients/audience?
I encourage parents to hug their children at the end of each day and ask ‘what was the best part of your day.’ See where the conversation takes you.
