"Hope can be a powerful force. Maybe there's no actual magic in it, but when you know what you hope for most and hold it like a light within you, you can make things happen, almost like magic." Laini Taylor


I've lived in Colorado Springs for about 20 years now. I attended college in Santa Barbara for one year just after graduating from high school and then took an extended period of time off. When I returned to college, I went to Pikes Peak Community College before transferring to UCCS. I earned my BA in English in May 2020 and had a virtual graduation ceremony - not the way I thought things were going to go! I also have two teenage daughters who I love to hang out with. My favorite thing to do is read -- mostly a wide variety of fiction. I also love exploring beautiful hiking areas around Colorado and catching up on tv shows with my kids.
