Tell us about yourself.

My husband Matt and I are parents to two very active and amazing children, 6 and 4 years old. We moved to Wheat Ridge in 2013, and fell in love with our neighborhood and neighbors. Professionally, I have my MBA and PharmD and work for a global, family-owned pharmaceutical company on the medical affairs side. My professional life is focused on relationship building and the communication of research and clinical progress that is being made in neonatology and cystic fibrosis.

How did you get involved with Localworks?

I was introduced to Localworks by a very active and passionate neighbor. We were lucky to participate in a Mid-Century Modern Home Tour, and we learned a lot about the organization at the time. I strongly believe in giving back to the community, and this was the perfect opportunity to do so. Everyone is energetic, passionate, intelligent and fun to work with!

What other local organizations are you involved with?

This is the first local organization that I have been involved with.

Favorite Localworks program?

It would be hard to pick a favorite program, but I love the Mid-Mod Tour. It’s so fun to be a part of the community in this way and meet people who have great and unique taste while also learning about the history of Wheat Ridge.

What do you love about Wheat Ridge?

I love our diverse, small community. I love the Ridge at 38 area, that people notice what’s going on around them, neighbors check in on one another, and people are passionate about the future of Wheat Ridge. I have lived in a big city, a small city and a small town, and this is the best of all worlds.
