What year did you start working for Habitat Vail Valley?

What do you like to do in your spare time?
When I am not at work I can be found chasing (by foot, by bike, by skis) my sons Eli and Max.

What inspires you?
I am inspired by our natural surroundings. We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place. I am also inspired by my kids to work hard, make a difference, and hopefully set a good example.

Why are you in nonprofit work?
It comes very naturally to work hard at something you are passionate about. I believe in the mission of Habitat and I’m inspired by our homeowners who I have seen work very hard to achieve their dream to own a home and create a better future for themselves and their kids. It’s life changing and they go on to impact so many lives in so many ways. I cannot imagine a better place than the Vail Valley to raise a family. I am fortunate to own a home here and raise my kids. I love working with families who want to do the same.

What’s something quirky about you?
I  can’t stand peanut butter.
