A Little Bit About Me

When researching 2015-07-11-20-02-21candidates it is hard to get to know who they really are. I hope this blog post helps you to get to know me a little better.

Prior to moving to Cheyenne in 2014, my husband and I were living and working in Sheridan. I was working for an agricultural company designing and building their website and their online data collection systems. My husband was a gas compressor mechanic for a midstream oil and gas company. We decided to move to Cheyenne so my husband could return to school and pursue his Bachelor of Science in Engineering. We were lucky to find a house with some property west of Cheyenne in the Happy Valley subdivision and as the fairy tales always say “lived happily ever after.”

2015-10-04-10-09-48We have really enjoyed living out in the Happy Valley. Our neighbors are wonderful and have become true friends. We have also really enjoyed our close proximity to Curt Gowdy State Park and the Vedauwoo area. It is so nice that we are only 10 to 20 miles from being able to engage in some of our favorite outdoor activities – horseback riding, hiking, backpacking, hunting, fishing, boating, and snowshoeing!

For the last nine years I have had the pleasure of working for University of Wyoming Extension as a community development educator. I cover a 5 county area that includes Carbon, Albany, Laramie, Goshen, and Platte counties. The thing I love the most about my job is that I work with people (both colleagues and clientele) who are incredibly passionate about helping people and making a positive difference in their communities. The best part of teaching adults is that moment when you have shared something that someone in the class can really use and their excitement and enthusiasm about putting it into practice. Through my work I have made incredible friends from around Wyoming and have learned so much.
