Where were you born and where have you lived?
I was born in Wheatridge, Colorado, (what used to be) a little suburb west of Denver. But when I was six, my mom and I moved to Southern California, where I lived until I turned 18. (For those of you who know California, I lived in Escondido and Temecula.) After graduating high school, I moved back to Colorado to attend college at CSU--and the rest is history!
Where did you attend university or college?
I attended college at Colorado State University, during which I completed my bachelor's degree in two-and-a-half years.
What kind of reading do you most enjoy doing?
I am a total sucker for teen fiction. Anything with magical worlds has me hooked.
What are the small essentials that make life more comfortable?
A warm cup of tea or coffee can brighten even the darkest of days.
What are your favorite snacks?
I love chocolate, especially dark chocolate; but fired or melted cheese is one of my biggest weaknesses.
What do you do to unwind?
I love getting lost in a good book, spending time with family, or escaping into the mountains. Trees are definitely a friend of mine!
How could a parent volunteer help you most?
I will take all the help I can get with prep work!
