Profile


I have lived in Colorado since 1963 and organized family camping trips with my husband and two boys throughout Colorado.


I love Colorado history and worked five years for the Colorado Prospector, a newspaper reprinting historical early day Colorado newspapers. When I host international students attending DU. I often take them on tours to downtown Denver including Denver Public Library, art museum, History Colorado, State Capitol, Brown Palace, Larimer Square and Lower Downtown.


I wrote articles for Rocky Mountain Construction about Denver’s major public projects from the first light rail, Coors Field, Bronco Stadium, Denver Art Museum expansion, Convention Center, to Aquarium and so on.
