What brought us to this valley:

I was 23 when I came here to visit my mom and stepdad (Karen Owens & Dr. Harling) in 1996.  They had a condo at the base of Highlands at the time.  Back when highlands was a dirt parking lot.  I fell in love with the ski hill, and then the town.  I found out about the photography & graphic design programs at CMC. Throughout college, I worked for a local clothing designer in Snowmass, as a graphic designer, photographer, etc. There I had the privilege to collaborate on projects with Obermeyer, Head, Heli Hansen, and more.  After graduation in 1999, I started my first company called PhotoGraphix in the Hotel Colorado.  A highbred Olde Tyme Photo Studio and professional photography / graphic design studio. I targeted Realtors for photography and design work. I got married in 2001 and landed a job with Coates, Reid & Waldron, the local Sotheby’s Affiliate at the time.  Within 2 years, I had my first son, then my second 3 years later (18 & 15 now).  I have built 2 houses in the valley and raised my 2 boys in the Glenwood Springs area. I recently went through a difficult divorce that was finalized in 2021. Since then, I have rekindled my passion for life, and a joy for everything this valley has to offer, from the great outdoors, to the amazing people and culture that make Aspen incredible.

My mantra is LOVE YOUR LIFE Authentically & Vulnerably, regardless of internal or external challenges.
