My husband, Jackson, and I love living in Grand County. We are both from the Midwest and frequently get the question “Why do you live there, it’s cold, and doesn’t it snow all the time?” It is cold, but oh the sunshine, and until one has experienced a true “powder day”, one cannot understand how it is possible to love snow so much. We enjoy living in Grand County and being minutes away from all the outdoor activities that, with the company of our dog Josie, we enjoy regularly: mountain biking, hiking, snow shoeing, nordic skiing, snowboarding, camping and kayaking. Grand County offers all the benefits of living in the mountains, but still maintains the atmosphere of a small town community. What I love most about my job as a physician is having the opportunity to educate patients about prevention and wellness, helping them embrace change and providing guidance through life’s difficult challenges – whatever they may be.
