I live in Boulder, CO with my boyfriend, Ben, after spending 3 years in New York City. I have a rescue pup named Poppy, who I’m absolutely obsessed with. This fall, I became a certified yoga teacher. I love spending time outdoors, whether it’s hiking, skiing, or any of the many other activities that Boulder has to offer. I also like to go to concerts and try new food.
