I was born and raised in Colorado and can’t imagine calling any other place my home. I grew up near Alamosa in the San Luis Valley. It shares many similar characteristics with the Grand Valley, so when I moved to the Western Slope I immediately felt right at home.
I attended college at the University of Denver and lived in the big city for about 7 years. I took a job opportunity in Grand Junction and completely fell in love with the area. I decided Grand Junction is where I want to be.
I’m passionate about people- learning their stories and helping them achieve their goals. That is why I being a Realtor is the most rewarding and fulfilling thing I could ever imagine doing. It’s so much more than a job. It drives me to be great, gives me purpose and brings me joy every single day.
I love ALL that the Western Slope has to offer, from the great outdoors to amazing local businesses that make this community so incredible, and unique from any other.
