I grew up in Colorado and still think Rocky Mountain is the most beautiful of all the National Parks. I lived in California for over a decade, attending college on the Central Coast at Cal Poly, and then making my way to San Francisco. Now I'm back in Colorado!

I love traveling, and have been all over the U.S. as well as Australia, Africa, Iceland, Mexico, Canada, and Europe. Most recently was Chile, where we hiked the "W" in Patagonia and checked out the lunar landscape in the Atacama Desert. 

When I’m not nerding out on words, I’m getting blissfully lost in the forest with my husband, son, and Sunnypup.
