In 8th grade, a career test forecasted that I would go on to become a cheese maker, but that has yet to come to fruition. Until it does, I assume I’ll continue my career in Marketing. Having lived in Colorado for 75 percent of my life, I think I’m as close as it gets to “native” status. When I’m not at work, I enjoy golf, skiing, writing and spectator-sporting.
