Your adventure starts....where? I'd start in Bora Bora because it's been labeled at the "pearl of the Pacific." The very definition of a tropical getaway, blissful Bora Bora abounds with sunny skies, warm waters and friendly locals. The perfect place where I would love to relax and explore!

A great moment for you: I'd have to say the birth of my son and daughter, followed very closely by my wedding day.

Your passions outside of work: My family, traveling, camping, hiking, fishing, pretty much anything in the great outdoors! I am a very active person, so anything that keeps me moving.

A quote that inspires you: "Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." -Mahatma Gandhi

Why I live in Utah: Being born and raised here I have planted my roots. I love the mountains and the recreational opportunities Utah offers. I love to travel, but Utah will always be my home. The people and community here are great, and it's a fantastic place to raise a family. And I love the Utah Jazz!

Best place I've lived: I have only lived in the great state of Utah. However, if I could choose I would live in Utah's mountains year-round.

First job: Grocery store. I was 15 and worked 15-20 hours a week collecting carts and bagging groceries. It was a great lesson in responsibility and I earned some great friendships while doing it.
