Professional Background/Occupation

My professional background began in the hospitality industry over seventeen years ago at The Peaks Hotel while I was in college. After working with Caesars Palace and a GES – a convention services company, I moved back to Telluride in 2004 and worked for the developer of lumiere and opened the hotel as the General Manager. Currently, I am the General Manager of Telluride Rentals (a locally based vacation rental company) and we currently have offices and employees in Mountain Village, Telluride and Barcelona.

Length of Time as Town Resident

2 years Mountain Village – 11 Years in Telluride

Previous Political Experience/Specific Qualifications

I do not have any previous political experience, but believe my professional background can be of service to serve on council. I have an undergraduate degree in Hospitality and a Masters in Real Estate and Construction Management. I currently manage a business that has employees and offices in Telluride and Mountain Village.

Reasons You Would Like to Serve

After moving from Telluride to the Mountain Village two years ago, I have a unique perspective of living and running a business in this area and would like to be involved in the processes that help shape the Mountain Village to become a more sustainable and viable year-round community. I believe I can offer a voice to employees, residents and businesses in the Mountain Village because of my experience in the community for over seventeen years in each of these roles. I understand the challenges and opportunities that exist in our special town and look forward to serving.

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

I currently serve on the Board of The San Miguel Resource Center and am a member of Telluride Association of Realtors.
