After graduating from Indiana University in December of 2010 with a degree in criminal justice and linguistics, I decided I didn't want a regular desk job right out of college. I've lived in Indiana my entire life, and while I've gotten to travel, I felt the need to move somewhere with a little more geographical diversity. The mountains have always called my name (in the Midwest there's no real mountains to speak of), so I decided to work at a ski resort in the Rocky Mountains for the winter. I'm always looking for a new adventure and love to travel and move around, hoping that one day I'll find somewhere that I want to call home for longer than 5 months. I love doing almost every outdoor activity: running, biking, hiking, kayaking, rock climbing and most recently snowboarding. I'll try just about anything once.
After moving to the middle of nowhere and working for a company that truly believes in going green, I realized that I wanted to work for an organization that promotes conservation and preserving natural resources. This eventually led me to the SCA, and I'm extremely excited to share my love for the outdoors and work towards making the park a better place for everyone that uses it.
