I recently graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor of science in political science. While in school I worked for Texas A&M’s Career Center to help plan and execute our Arts & Sciences Career Fair and several other events.

What brought you to GOCO? 

GOCO does something extremely important for the community and the state of Colorado. I love that the work being done at GOCO matters and is making a huge impact. Also, I feel like I can learn so much from this internship to further my career in the communications world.

What has been your favorite part of working here so far?

Seeing the behind the scenes of all the cool things GOCO does! There’s super special and important work being done here and I’m so excited to be a part of the team.

What is your typical day like?

My typical day includes some sort of workout, hanging outside with my dog reading a book, then getting dinner or drinks with friends!

What are some of your favorite things to do outdoors?

I love outdoor sports! My favorites are golf, beach volleyball, and pickleball. I also like to find new trails to walk and hike with my friends or my dog.

Where is your favorite place to get outdoors in Colorado? 

I just moved here so I haven’t experienced many places yet, but growing up my family would vacation here a lot and my favorite place to visit was Steamboat Springs. It’s so beautiful and has great trails! They also have hot springs--that’s super cool.

What is your most memorable outdoors mishap?

When I was 15 years old, my friend and I were looking around for easy trails to walk/hike and we just picked one without doing much research. This was in Texas, so we didn’t think any trail was going to be that hard elevation wise, and we were dumb 15-year-olds. What we thought was going to be a leisurely hike ended up being a 9-mile, super steep hike that involved some climbing that we were not prepared for. We ended up having to quit halfway and it was embarrassing how out of shape we looked going back down.
