For the past six years, she has worked as a real estate agent at RE/MAX of Los Alamos.
She grew up in Boulder, Colorado, and lived in Los Angeles and Denver before moving with her husband to Santa Fe for a year and then to Los Alamos. Besides her community involvements, she likes to read, ski, and spend time with her family.
