Fifteen minutes with … a Glenwood Springs Native
Age: 33Place of birth: Glenwood SpringsOccupation: Athletics Assistant director at the Glenwood Springs Community Center. When did you move to Garfield County and why? I was born and raised in Glenwood, and I will probably be here the rest of my life.
What’s the best part of your job in Glenwood Springs? The involvement with the community. All of the people and the locals here are just great and to be involved with them on a daily basis is fun.First thing you’d buy after winning the lottery? I’d build a sports complex for the kids around here. A big one with fields and everything for the youth sports in town. What do you do in your spare time? I don’t have a lot of spare time, but I do spend a lot of time watching my kids play sports. There is no better way to spend my extra time.Greatest accomplishment: My kids and family, without a doubt.
Ever had a book, movie change or inspire your life? Not one movie in particular. Every movie at that moment has an impact. I really like the show “Extreme makeover” because it really shows you what people need.As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? A mother.Who are your favorite three musical performers? George Strait because he hits what life is all about right on the head. Garth Brooks because he’s so inspirational, and Josh Turner – he’s got a deep voice that is just great.If you could invite any three people to dinner, who would they be, what would you serve and what would you talk about? My grandfather who passed away, because I miss him and I would really like to talk to him again. My Grandmother, because she passed away before I was born and I never got to know her. And, Oprah Winfrey, because there are a few things I would like to set straight with her.
