I started exploring cities and traveling at a really young age, inspired by my Grandfather, who had epic stories of the road from his time as a Broadway and traveling stage actor. I do now for work what I would do if I wasn’t working: get to know places inside and out. And, when I’m not working, I am lugging my wife and three daughters all over Denver and the western U.S.
My love of travel and seeing new places and cultures began with my journey at 3 weeks old from Modesto, California to Boulder, Colorado where I was raised. I grew up exploring the mountains with winter snow skiing and hiking, water skiing in Utah, boogie boarding on the waves of the Pacific Ocean, and traveling for school athletic events or family gatherings throughout the USA. My exploration of the world as an adult created a profound impact on my heart and soul and instilled a compassion for all cultures. Sharing life with my husband, 3 daughters, other family and friends here in Colorado and all over the world has enriched my soul and prepared me to be a wife, mom, Yoga Instructor and Director of Operations for Atlas Integrated.
Even though I’m a Boulder, CO born native, my love for traveling and places starts when my family moved to Oxford, England when I was a little baby. I grew up visiting different cities and states through baseball and golf tournaments. Seeing all these different places growing up solidified my passion for studying, exploring, and understanding the ways of life in different areas, which is why studied Geography/GIS while at CU. When I’m not in the office, you can find me either skiing, golfing, or rooting on my CO sports teams! Sko Buffs!
Growing up in the small town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado instilled in me a sense of adventure from a young age. Whether that adventure be a camp trip in the Rockies, a cross country road trip, or a spur of the moment trip to Japan; the draw of new sights, sounds and people has brought me all over the world. When I am not in the office you can find me on the slopes, in an ice rink, at the rodeo, or getting lost in the Rockies. My connections and experiences I have made all over the world have helped propelled me into my role working with and helping people achieve success.
My first memories were crafted on the islands of the Philippines and on the island of Guam but my family eventually immigrated and made new beginnings in the town of Cheyenne, WY. After developing my trade in Denver, I landed my first job at a digital design agency in NYC. I moved back and made Denver my home where I help at my parent’s restaurant and continue to apply my creativity at Atlas. In addition to traveling to experience other cultures and cuisines, my other favorite pastimes include photography, learning a new instrument, and wandering around downtown and up in the mountains.
