No better way to start the day

I work as the director of human resources for a healthcare company in Denver West.

I’ve always enjoyed Golden. I grew up in Arvada, and as a kid, I remember eating at the restaurant inside Foss Drug. I went out-of-state for college, but ended up back in the Denver area in 1998. Then I met my husband Daryl and we bought our home in Golden.

We have two kids who are 6 and 8, and we’re always walking around the neighborhood or playing at the park.

I like to go mountain biking and road biking. I’m not sure if there is a better way to start the day other than taking a hike or bike ride up Apex as the sun is rising over Denver.

My husband and I also enjoy being patrons of the local breweries. We love tasting all the award-winning beers that are produced here.

Studying a period of great divide and unification

I’m a pretty big Civil War buff. I read a lot of Civil War books, and I’ve traveled to at least four or five states to visit various battlefields. I had relatives who fought on both sides, so I have that connection. Then I had a teacher in junior high who had an interactive Civil War history class. He inspired me to fall in love with this time in American history that includes both great divide and unification.

Co-chair of Leadership Golden

I volunteer for Leadership Golden. I’ve had a number of different roles with the program, but currently I am co-chairing it.

Leadership Golden is a nonprofit program that consists of a series of seminars that span a nine-month period. The seminars provide opportunities for participants to increase their knowledge of the relationships between government, education, business and the community of Golden.

I took the class when I first moved to Golden in 2003, and ever since then, I’ve been involved with the program.

What is so intriguing is the opportunity to meet people outside of what you know — whether it be attendees or seminar speakers. To me, that creates a connection to the people of the community. I really like the idea that community is created by its people. And Golden has a history of engaged citizens who make it a great place to live.
