What are your favorite ways to unwind outside of work?
My favorite things to do outside of work are spending time with my big, silly family in the mountains, hiking, biking, and camping. I also love live music and I will take any opportunity to be outside dancing at Red Rocks to my favorite bands!
What’s your favorite seafood? How do you like to prepare it?
I can’t pick one favorite! I honestly love them all and am always excited to taste something new and then challenge myself to prepare it at home and introduce it to my family.
