Tell us about your life and adventures outside of Winter Session…
Outside of my part-time job at Winter Session, I work full-time as a grants specialist with a local nonprofit, Colorado Coalition for the Homeless. I am also out in our beautiful Colorado mountains as much as possible with my partner, Joel (now another awesome WS employee!) and our cute pup, Marley Jo. I am also often found baking sweet treats for friends (and WS events!), and when I can find the time, love a trip to a local coffee shop for some quality time with a cortado and a good book.

A typical day for you from starts with...
A cup of tea, movement (some yoga, tabata, or a run with my cute dog), and a bike ride to my full-time job.
And ends with...
Making cool stuff at Winter Session! Then going home to unwind with Joel and take the pup for a nice long walk together. Our walks are my favorite part of the day.
Which WS bag do you tote?
Natural Grey Garrison with natural leather. I saw it the very first time I came in to the shop almost two years ago and fell in love with it, and I still adore it. It's a classic.
Three things that are always in your bag…
Keys/phone/wallet count as one thing, right?! The wallet is a Winter Session Slash Wallet - I love how minimal it is. A Small Zip Bag in Grey with some pens and pencils, a pencil sharpener, and other odds and ends in case I need them when work/creativity strikes. And a water bottle. (Ok, let's be real...the water bottle is NOT always in my bag. I accidentally leave it at The WS Outpost at least once a week.)
Share a memorable adventure with your Garrison…
Joel and I traveled to see his family in Fargo for a long weekend this past May, and I fit EVERYTHING I took on that trip in my Garrison bag. It was an amazing feat, especially given my love of fashion and penchant for over-packing.
What's blasting in your earbuds/car stereo right now?
Colorado Public Radio Open Air in the car...our car is old school and doesn't have an audio jack, but it's given us the chance to find out how awesome CPR is lately. And in my headphones...I'm unapologetically still on a Spotify CHVRCHES radio kick.
