I have lived in Colorado all my life. I grew up with 5 siblings in Monument, CO. I moved up to Boulder County 3 years ago and I am currently a Junior at the University of Colorado in Boulder studying Integrative Physiology and Psychology. I’ve wanted to be a fire fighter for as long as I can remember. I joined the department about 7 months ago. This was best decision I have ever made. I am the first person in my family to pursue fire fighting. After graduating CU, I intend to pursue a career in fire service. I love hiking, running and anything out doors.
