I would love to work on something that help disabled people regain freedom or quality of life.
Where are you from and how did you end up in Colorado?
It’s hard to say where I am from. I moved a lot as a child. My mother was born in Colorado. My children were born in Colorado. I, however, was not born in Colorado — but, I have moved here 3 times.

I enjoy the climate, the spectacular geography, and a culture where individuals are generally free to be themselves.
