California dreamin’

My husband Noah and I moved to Parker from northern California in 2005, and soon after I became pregnant with twins. Now we live in Canterberry, we both work full time and have two 10-year-old twins, and I serve on the Frontier Valley Education Alliance board as co-chair of fundraising. Our lives are pretty hectic.

We’ve been very fortunate to meet such great people here in Colorado and we love raising our kids here, but we do miss our family and friends in California, though we don’t miss the traffic. We do make sure to visit there often and try to persuade as many of them to move here.

Branching out


I recently started my own event marketing firm, Spin Event Management. It was something I’d dreamed of doing for a long time, and I’m fortunate to have the support from my family and friends to make it happen.

Funding for the future

If I could change one thing about the world it would be to elect a new president, can you print that?

Seriously though, I think our approach to funding education needs to be changed. Education is one of the most important things for children and it’s our future, but the way our schools are funded is crazy. One of my favorite quotes is “what if we fully funded schools and made prisons make up their budget deficits with box tops and money from Target?”

Hobbies and hockey players


My favorite things to do with the people I love are drinking wine, camping in our trailer, skiing, biking and just hanging out. When I get the rare occasion to be by myself and recharge, I enjoy a cocktail on my deck or by the fire pit and enjoy the view.

I love hockey and I’m a big Avalanche fan. My favorite player was Cody McLeod because he always started the brawls. Now that he’s been traded my favorites are Matt Duchene and Tyson Barrie. Duchene is super quick on the ice and Barrie is so witty and funny in interviews that he makes me laugh. He’s a great defenseman too.
