One Unusual Thing About You:
I am sure I have many unusual things about me😊 but I cant pinpoint a fun one.
In What Ways Are You Involved in Your Community?
I am very involved with our local schools. I volunteer at them regularly, as well as sponsor and help organize school fundraising events. I am also involved with WomensGive Larimer County, which is a program to help single mothers get a college education to help provide for their children.
Who Inspires You?
A lot of people inspire me, so it’s hard to pick just one. Anyone who keeps growing and innovating themselves is a great inspiration for me.
My husband is a huge inspiration and inspires me every day. He is hardworking but also family focused, and thoughtful. He always asks the right questions to people about their lives and seeing what is going on that is important to them, even if he is super busy. He always the kids and I first which allows me to go through busy times and not worry.
What Is Your Proudest Accomplishment and Why?
Having my children. I have always been very active, and career driven. So when I had my children, I loved seeing a different side of me open up and truly enjoy loving them in a way I hadn’t experienced before.
How Do You Define Success?
A work/life balance. When I feel the most successful is when I can have great family time while also helping my clients find their perfect home or sell their home to move on to their next adventure. The balance keeps me feeling happy and successful
What Career Path Would You Have Chosen If You Didn’t Become a Real Estate Broker?
I love real estate but also do have a past career/life that I still enjoy. I own a local salon and spa in Fort Collins (Orchidee Salon & Spa) and still enjoy seeing it thrive. I have amazing managers that run it for me so I can fully focus on my real estate career, but if I wasn’t in real estate, I would still have that as my focus and passion.
If You Could Master Any Skill That You Don’t Currently Have, What Would It Be and Why?
I just decided to learn tennis. I have never played before and love the idea of taking on something fun yet hard to master. It’s been a long time since I have learned a new activity/sport and I am looking forward to having some fun.
What Is the Most Adventurous Thing You’ve Ever Done?
Starting my own business. From the conception to the big financial risk of taking the leap has been a huge adventure. Any business owner knows it’s a big leap and a great reward.
If You Could Have Dinner with Anyone, Who Would It Be and Why?
Anna Wintour. She quickly navigated to the top of the fashion and editing world and eventually changed the look and focus of Vogue. I would love to pick her brain about how she achieved her success and what life looks like outside of her career.
What Is Your Favorite Family Tradition?
I love Christmas. I love everything about it but especially family traditions from my past, as well as creating new ones with my family. We try to have a true “Colorado” Christmas by going up to a cabin or home in the mountains (usually Devils Thumb Ranch) so you get the snow and the family time without all the interruptions. Sometimes we do this before or after Christmas so we make sure to also see our extended family on the actual day, but this is our special time just me, my husband, and our kids. Christmas songs, cooking together as a family, decorating our tree (I am a huge fan of decorating the tree together and however the kiddos want it, so it may not be pretty but its fun!), and we have even done sleigh rides. Truly the full holiday experience!
What’s the Best Concert You’ve Ever Been To? What Made It So Special?
I love any outdoor concert, especially Red Rocks. I think you get such a great feeling when you are at Red Rocks hearing music and enjoying the beauty of Colorado at the same time.
If You Could Live in A Book, TV Show, Or Movie What Would It Be and Why?
Outlander is my favorite book series so I would have to choose that. They have now made a TV series out of it and I would be fine with that as well, but of course the book is always better! The story is based on a strong woman who pushes and breaks boundaries and stereotypes when she goes back in time. How could you not love going back to another time to experience life a different, more simple way. And I mean who doesn’t love Scotland!
