Supervised Visitation Monitor & Volunteer Coordinator
I grew up in New Hampshire and attended the University of New Hampshire for my undergrad in Kinesiology/ Outdoor Education. I then completed my Master’s at Southern New Hampshire University and moved to Colorado in 2016. I have had a variety of different jobs from being an EMT and ski patroller to working as a paraprofessional, but the common thread has been helping others in the community. Since landing in Steamboat, I have enjoyed my time working at both Horizons Specialized Services and Routt County DHS. I was also fortunate to have met and married my husband in the valley. We live in Hayden with our son and pets.
