I am almost a Colorado Springs native. My family moved here when I was 10. I went to college in Greeley and graduated with a journalism degree. I am married to my high school sweetheart, we just celebrated our 19th anniversary of dating. We have three kids and a 100 pound furball. We spend as much time outdoors as possible, and love doing family hikes. I love a good soapy teen drama, true crime podcasts and friends, I'm a self proclaimed coffee snob, and do my best to see the positive side of every situation.
