My husband and I moved here from Montana to be closer to family.

If offered a dream vacation, where would you go, and why?
My dream vacation would be a year-long sabbatical. I would start with hiking the Inca trail then head over to the Galapagos. After that I’d spend a few months in Europe touring, then hang out in the Seychelles for a while. Really, anywhere with adventure would be a dream vacation.
Best lesson learned as a child? Don’t take people for granted, you never know how much time you’ll have with them.

Defining moment in your life or your greatest accomplishment:? The defining moment in my life was when I decided to take a summer break from college and move out west to Yellowstone National Park. Two weeks later I met my husband, and the rest is history! My greatest accomplishment is my 2 daughters.
A memorable dinner? When I was running the events program at Skibowl, we hosted an event for REI several years ago. We created a mountain top dinner location at the base of Upper Bowl. It was pretty surreal: 400 women being served family-style on the side of a mountain. After we set the tables, a huge gust of wind came and tore it all apart, minutes before the guests arrived. Somehow, we pulled it off, and it was the highlight of the week!

A funny moment from your life that you can share? A few years ago, we moved into a new house next door to some of our closest friends. They happened to be on vacation while we were moving (yes, that’s a dig), and my husband got this great idea to buy 75 sticky hands, sneak into their house and shoot them on the ceiling all through the house. They returned a few days later, only to find that they had stained the ceiling with what looked like colorful little tadpoles in almost every room of the house. And this is how the prank war began.
If you could invite anyone (past or present) to dinner, who would it be and why? I’d have to pick 2. My sister-in-law Corinne, so my kids could spend time with their Aunt. And my Dad!
Describe yourself in one word? Planner
When you’re not reading The Mountain Times, what book/author/magazine/other do you read? I wish I had time!

I read a lot of contracts...
If your life were made into a play or movie, what would the title be: Never a dull moment.    
Pet peeve? People who are unkind. It’s been a rough last few years, we could all just be a little more kind to each other.

Bad habit you’d like to break? Getting irritated with my family when they don’t do things “my way.”
Famous person(s) you have met, and the circumstances? I met Kenny Rogers in college when I catered his wife’s 30th birthday party at his ranch in Tennessee.
Favorite part of The Mountain Times? Mountain Profile!
