With encouragement from my family and friends, I decided to move from Virginia to the Roaring Fork Valley in May of 2015. Since then, I've worked at Ski.com and have happily transitioned into the Co-op & Promotions Manager position. Living in the Aspen area is a dream come true, with so much to do and explore. I am truly blessed to have found a community that shares in my love for the outdoors.
