I grew up in a military family and lived in Maine, Massachusetts, Illinois and Virginia before coming to Colorado to attend college. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration/Marketing from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I worked in the Financial Services field with an investment firm for many years after college, but decided to leave my job to be a stay at home parent when my second daughter was born. I was in this “job” for 12 years before starting here at Meridian. My daughters attend High School and Middle School in the Adams 12 School District. Both of my daughters play soccer, so I spend most of my weekends attending their games at fields throughout Colorado and occasionally in another state. On the few weekends that we don’t have a soccer game, I try to get out and do a little fishing, especially in the winter when I can go ice fishing.
