Hello again Mountain Sky! Some of you may remember me from 2012 – 2014 when I worked as Kids Program Assistant Manager and then Manager. It is with great joy that I am announcing my return as Kids Program Manager for the 2021 season! I originally hail from Phoenix, Arizona where I received a bachelors in nonprofit management in 2012 from Arizona State University. After graduating, I spent three glorious seasons at Mountain Sky where I fell in love with southwest Montana and decided to make it my permanent home. Since leaving the ranch in 2014, I worked as the outreach coordinator for a domestic violence shelter in Bozeman called HAVEN for five years and then moved to MIssoula, Montana to pursue a master’s degree in social work from the University of Montana. I (theoretically) graduate in May 2021! When I am not stuck behind my computer writing papers and participating in Zoom meetings, you can find me with my dogs (Chuggs and Emmylou) and my partner David hiking, fly fishing, cross country skiing, reading a good book over a glass of wine or enjoying a luxurious nap. The year 2020 (and 2021) has been a wild, stressful and sometimes painful experience for many of us. If there is anything I have learned through these unprecedented times, it is that we humans really need each other. I am beyond excited to experience another magical season with you in the beautiful mountains. Cheers to all of the healing laughs, connections and shared memories to come!
