What do you love to do outside of work?
I love to travel, whether it's a day trip to the mountains or halfway across the world. I love to read books of all genres--if it's well-written and engaging, I'll read it.

What do you love most about being part of Crestone?
I love the spirit of camaraderie among Crestone associates. We all work hard as a team and take Crestone's mandate very seriously; yet, we manage not to take ourselves too seriously, and we have a lot of fun getting the job done.
