Professional Background/Occupation

I am a social media professional. This means I’m a lifestyle blogger with clients around the world. I am currently writing a cookbook for a large publisher and I’m also on TV from time to time.

Length of Time as Town Resident

4.5 years full time with 7 years part time prior to that

Previous Political Experience/Specific Qualifications

I work with clients around the world in the food, fashion & travel industries. I am a people person with a huge passion for Mountain Village/Telluride. My job brings me to the most beautiful ski resorts around the world. I’m very much on the pulse with the mountain life and ski culture. My experience in front of the live TV cameras has made me very suitable to get up in front of an audience.

Reasons You Would Like to Serve

My passion for this area is HUGE! That’s why I call it my home. Mountain Village has so much more potential than it’s currently portraying. This place is spectacular & I feel like it’s often squelched. I want to help make it shine in every way. My travel blogging is focused on luxury markets around the world. That means I see things that work, and things that don’t in this market. There are some things we have nailed down and others not so much. I would love to have a voice in current and future developments of the area. There is so much work ahead to bring it to it’s potential.

Other Information You Want to Include (family, community involvement, other personal information)

I am a mother of two kids, Lucas (10 years old) and Leela (13 years old). They attend the Telluride Public School. We are active residents and I volunteer when I can for school and community events. I am a super hard, self motivated business owner. I’ve been an independent contractor since I can remember! Prior to working in social media I was a graphic designer for the Walt Disney Co. Warner Bros. and many other well know licensed brands.
