I grew up in two places - the high peaks of Colorado during the school years and a farm in Michigan during the summers. My senior year of high school I moved to Michigan and after graduation enrolled at Michigan State University for my undergraduate studies. I moved to Colorado permanently in 1992. I have enjoyed 24 years of accounting and business consulting work. Even more than that, I enjoy my husband, 3 sons, and a rambunctious collie. In my free time I enjoy walking, running, figure skating, and reading about shipwrecks in the Great Lakes.
