Personal Information: family, hobbies:
I have lived in Colorado most of my life (except my stent in Southern California for college). I grew up in Salida and love the outdoors (hiking, snowshoeing, rafting, paddle boarding), traveling, and recently have been getting into photography with my boyfriend. I have worked primarily as an acute care therapist during my career and have a passion for critical care.
