What brought you to the Roaring Fork Valley and how long have you been here?
Came out to visit a friend and moved out a few months later. Have been here 10 and a half years now.
What was your most interesting or unusual job?
During college I worked in a factory during the summers. We made glass windshields for cars. It was good money but factory line work was not fun and kept me motivated to stay in college.
Why did you apply to RFL?
Gain leadership skills, in particular confidence in self. I also wanted to meet new people in the community.
What is your definition of success?
Being able to provide for my family – clothes on their backs, food in the fridge, roof over their heads, and extra for the fun stuff.
What are you most proud of in the last year?
My husband and I purchased a new house, had a baby, and I took on more responsibility at work. It has been a bit crazy but rewarding!
What do you regret not doing in the last year?
Making more time for myself for working out and also spending more time with my kids doing fun stuff, not work around the house.
Anything you would like to share so far about your RFL experience?
It’s really opened my eyes to how my already always listening’s hinder and block me from really listening to people.
What is the best advice you ever heard?
That you can’t always change something that is happening but you can change how you react to it.
