How long have you lived in Colorado and where are you from originally?
My husband and I moved to Colorado two years ago, but lived in Fort Collins and Pagosa Springs during that time before settling in Colorado Springs last April. Before that, I lived in Michigan, Ohio, Nebraska and Kansas, so basically the whole Midwest!
What is your favorite "mom time" of the day?
I’m working on waking up before my 3-month-old so I can ease into the day a bit. That’s still pretty rare, so I would say when I get out on a run.
What is one of your favorite things about being a part of FIT4MOM?
I’ve already met so many supportive, likeminded moms through FIT4MOM. It’s really a wonderful community.
What is your favorite exercise?
Running is my go-to workout.
What is your current or previous career?
I have a journalism background and continue to work from home as a freelance writer.
What is your proudest mommy moment so far?
I feel a little burst of pride 100 times a day — each time my son smiles or giggles!
Where is the farthest place you have traveled?
I studied abroad in Germany during college, during which time I also traveled to Austria and Switzerland with a friend.
What would your husband say is your best quality?
“Not patience, haha… I would say kindness."
What is your favorite thing to do in the Springs?
We are so glad we ultimately ended up in the Springs because of the plentiful hiking trails. On the weekends, we love taking family hikes — which is currently a bit challenging with an Ergo-resistant baby.
What is one thing we do not know about you?
I am a presidential trivia buff!
