Your Passion

Ultrarunning is my passion but it is fueled by the love of being in the Colorado outdoors year-round! I started running in high school and progressed from 10Ks to Marathons and eventually found that I love running 100 mile races. This year will be my 10th finish at the Leadville 100 race in August.

Your Story

I'm a Colorado native who can't get enough of Colorado. As teacher I am fortunate to have summers to spend outside running and climbing 14'ers, exploring trails, rivers, parks and experiencing every incredible aspect of Colorado. I've been a member of Westerra (formerly Jeffco School's Credit Union) since I was in high school. My dad was a teacher/principal and my parents opened my first checking account at the credit union. I remember making trips to deposit my paychecks into my account. Now I live a few blocks away from the original credit union and can walk to make deposits or withdrawals.

How Westerra Works for You

Every time I have been to Westerra, whether it has been to open an account for my daughter, change the name on my account or make a deposit, I find I am treated with kindness and respect. All the employees are cheerful and their pride in their work shows. It may seem a minor thing but I appreciate the positive energy.
