Sports Background: I played soccer and basketball my whole life and have always been involved in sports in some capacity, whether as a player, a coach, or working in college athletics.
Hobbies: Hiking, going on walks around the neighborhood with my fiancé. Landscape Photography.
Favorite trip: I did a two-week solo trip a couple of summers ago where I spent one week in Iceland, and one week in Scotland. It was great to get out and explore the dramatic scenery.
How did become associated with Triple Crown?: Triple Crown has always been something that I knew about growing up in Fort Collins. My brother let me know that there was a job opening, and I instantly knew I was interested in it.
What intrigues you the most about Triple Crown?: Triple Crown has been a pillar in the Fort Collins community for as long as I have been here, so being able to be part of something like that really meant a lot to me. I'm excited to work in athletics from the youth to collegiate level and hopefully provide a positive impact for the athletes who take part in our events.
