I was born and raised in Ohio and attended Ohio University on a football scholarship. After college, I moved to Houston, TX where I began my teaching career as a special education teacher. In 1997, I relocated to Colorado to continue teaching, coaching, and work as a middle school administrator. After 26 years in education, I moved over to commercial insurance. As an insurance advisor, I use my teaching background to explain policies to my clients to make sure they know what they have, why they have it, and to identify any gaps in their coverages. With my fiance, her daughter and our two dogs, we now call Lochbuie home. We enjoy travelling, camping, listening to all types of music, sports, and just being outdoors. I also like to mountain bike, hunt, and fish.
