My life in the Roaring Fork Valley had been all about being outside and experiencing new things in my own back yard. Being a part of the Glenwood Spring Bike team and the Sunlight Skimo team had made me realize that we have such a beautiful home and to see it slowly going away is so sad.

I feel positive about the future because solving the climate crisis is a huge opportunity to create the equitable, just, healthy, and prosperous world that we all want to see. I’ve dedicated myself to working on solutions because climate change affects what I love, and the important things are much bigger than me. Climate change really became a priority for me over a decade ago when living in Crested Butte. I would have the most amazing days […]
