What do you enjoy about working with college students?

My favorite thing about working with college students is they continuously challenge me and teach me something new—it is nice to work with so many student leaders in so many different capacities because I get to know students and have the opportunity to establish a professional relationship with them.

Where is your favorite place to go in Denver?

Concerts at Red Rocks

Where is the coolest place you have ever traveled?

Tough one. I love traveling, everywhere. Coolest place I’ve ever traveled is probably Kenya—did a service trip there right after my college graduation, life changing experience.
