About me

I’ve been a Castle Rock resident since 1996, and we live in old town Castle Rock near South Ridge Elementary. I grew up in Centennial. I have two kids, one at Douglas County High School and one at Northern Arizona University. I’m in school to become a certified life and health coach, and I work for ONEHOPE Winery. 

My work

I work with an award-winning Napa Valley wine company that gives 50 percent of its proceeds to different nonprofits. We partner with many nonprofits, like ASPCA (for pet adoption) and Team Rubicon to help military veterans. We are among the leaders in cause-commerce companies who want to change the world through giving. It’s a way for me to be an activist and know that I am making a difference, while making an income. To date we’ve given $2.6 million. I am always looking for more folks who want to raise money by drinking wine!

My hobbies

I recently started stand-up paddle boarding, and I love to hike. I like to keep up on what’s going on in town, and I usually watch the town council meetings on video on the town website. Also, I’m a big fan of checking out all the new breweries around Colorado! I say “IPA all the way!” 

Why I love Castle Rock

We have a great little town! I’ve been here long enough to remember when there wasn’t a ton to do here. Now we have all kinds of events right in our town to enjoy like movie nights, concerts and other events in the parks. Of course, the Starlighting is a great tradition in the winter.

My advice


I like to think what we do creates a ripple effect, so I hope to be a “positive influencer.” I heard this recently and try to remember it when I feel like complaining: “Optimism is what people respond to and negativity is what people remember.”
