My partner and I are avid homebrewers and active in both our local homebrew club (Foam on the Range) and at the national level. We compete in homebrew competitions, winning numerous awards, and we also judge at the local level. I also enjoy knitting and gardening in my spare time.
I am dedicated to promoting the importance of music in our lives. I have been volunteer staff with the CU "Golden Buffalo" Marching Band as their Uniform Coordinator since 2009 and established an endowment in 2005 to award scholarships to outstanding marching band members. I am also a Founder and Co-Chair of the Silver Buffs Marching Band Alumni Association at CU Boulder, whose mission is to support the current members of the CU marching band through service and fundraising.
