What Is One Special Thing About the Place You Grew Up?
The house that I grew up in was a long-term, stable place, from when I was 5 years old until I went to college. My parents are still married after over 50+ years too!
What Was Your First Job?
Camp Counselor for the neighborhood, and now our two daughters are following suit in Stapleton!
Traveling, skiing, golf and creating memories and traditions with my family.
Describe Yourself In 5 Words:
Caring, spontaneous, organized, funny and driven.
Favorite Colorado Past-time:
Anything outdoors! That’s one of the main reasons why we moved here from Chi-town 13 years ago.
Favorite Place to Grab a Drink:
Anywhere that serves chardonnay. Or “chard”, as I like to call it.
One Unusual Thing About You:
I can still do the splits at 47.
In What Ways Are You Involved in Your Community?
I do a lot of work with our daughters’ schools, and I am also in my fifth year of volunteering at the Denver Hospice Inpatient Care Center in Lowry. Death does not have to be scary, it can be quite comfortable, dignified and beautiful.
Who Inspires You?
My dad. He is 81 years old and going strong, even after a triple bypass last year! He was a CEO for most of his life, he still loves to travel the world with my mom and have amazing experiences, and he is one of the most generous people I know. He taught me many things, but most importantly how to give back, whether it’s money, time or talent, because we are very fortunate.
What Is Your Proudest Accomplishment and Why?
St. Patrick’s Day, my senior year of college at Michigan State, I set a record with a handful of other students for being in the same Irish bar for 19 hours! 7 AM to 2 AM! Just kidding. Even though that story is 100% true (our group picture is on the wall), my proudest accomplishment is my two girls. 🙂
How Do You Define Success?
To me success is more of a feeling, an emotion that allows a person to experience happiness and fulfillment based on whatever they have accomplished.
What Career Path Would You Have Chosen If You Didn’t Become a Real Estate Broker?
Advertising and Marketing agencies were my first career, my first work love.
If You Could Master Any Skill That You Don’t Currently Have, What Would It Be and Why?
Singing, because I think performing a show to thousands of people while they sing along with you would be amazing. I want to be the Rockstar Pink when I grow up.
What Is the Most Adventurous Thing You’ve Ever Done?
Skydiving, jumping out over the Rockies at 17,000 feet.
If You Could Have Dinner with Anyone, Who Would It Be and Why?
Ellen DeGeneres. I love her, I love her show, I love what she stands for, I love how much she gives to everyone. I just idolize her in general.
What Is Your Favorite Family Tradition?
Every night we eat together as a family at our kitchen table, we hold hands and say what we are thankful for. Our young ladies are 14 and 12 now, and we have been doing it since they were little.
What’s the Best Concert You’ve Ever Been To? What Made It So Special?
My first concert was Rick Springfield with my mom, and she still talks to this day about how “loud” it was. The other favorites are any that we have taken our daughters to, Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, etc. and watching them go crazy. Watching my sweet husband sing T Swift lyrics is pretty funny too.
If You Could Live in A Book, TV Show, Or Movie What Would It Be and Why?
I would live in any of the Hunger Games movies and kick ass! Or be the love interest in any movie opposite Brad Pitt.
