What do you do when you're not at KBUT?

I am the GIS Technician for Gunnison County; I make maps, play with data. I love it, I have lots of fun.! With my free time, I love to snowboard, snowmobile, Mtn. bike, go camping, play in the garden, do yoga, disappear on long summer 4 wheel drives, play with the dogs, cuddle up to a  movie on a rainy day, and just be with family and friends!

Hometown?

Memphis, Tennessee

Proudest Moment?

1 - Moving to Crested Butte, Colorado, 
2 - Graduating College
3 - Meeting my soul mate and lifelong partner!

Any Random Thought?

I believe life is what you make it, the greatest gift is love, there are no coincidences, be true to yourself and everything else will follow, do good to those in your life and go out of your way for someone you don't know, don't stress on silly things, life is too short for a BAD attitude, rise like a lion in the morning, be HAPPY, be strong from within, be slow to judge and quick to forgive, don't strive to make others happy, call an old friend, don't be afraid to love after you've been hurt, the only person that can bring you down is yourself, be independent and head strong, laugh EVERYDAY, have patience and empathy, surround yourself with righteous & real souls, meditate or have some alone time everyday, have faith, express love to your family, know that it is better to give than to receive, great love and great achievements involve great risks, have respect for yourself and take responsibility for your actions, be open to change but never let go of your values, be gentle with the earth, take lots of pictures, share your wisdom, try to overcome your fears, BUT most importantly......choose to LIVE.....Live a life full of joy and happiness.
