I recently graduated Western with a Masters of Science and look forward to contributing back to this great institution.

What excites you most about your field?

The opportunity to provide the same great experiences mountain sports gave me to future and current student athletes at Western!

What is your favorite thing about the Gunnison Valley?

The wild places that we get to call home and the community of people we share them with.
