She received a bachelor's degree in biology from Adams State University in Alamosa, Colorado, after which she volunteered with AmeriCorps.

“My passion has always been to care for the underserved and empower them to live their best life. It rejuvenates me to know that I am helping someone accomplish goals that they did not think were possible."
