I was born in Oklahoma but have lived most of my life in Western Colorado, the mountains have always been my happy place. I met my husband in 2011 and moved to this area in 2012 and have loved calling it “Home” ever since. Kris & I got married in 2014, and we currently live on a family-owned cattle ranch where we raise our 4 daughters. I went to CMU to study Criminal Justice and am now currently head teller at CSB where I have worked for 4 years. Working on the ranch is where we spend most of our time but in the summer, we enjoy camping, fishing, and helping our girls with their 4H projects. Family is our number one priority and rarely do we do anything without all of us together.
