Bio:

After 32 years here, I'm still a ski bum in Aspen, Colorado, and have worked at the city-owned historic Wheeler Opera House for 15 years as a bartender. I'm also a landlady, an environmental pilot for LightHawk and EcoFlight, and a search pilot for Pitkin County Air Rescue; I sell Haystack Mt Goat Cheese at our weekly downtown Farmer's Market from June through Oct., volunteer at the Aspen Music Festival every summer, exercise horses a few days a week in the summer and fall, and for about 10 years I was a Victorian-costumed walking tour guide for the Aspen Historical Society. In my past life I was a TV weather-lady in Aspen (1985-87) and Springfield, Mass. (1974-76.)
My main passions are still skiing. especially powder, and flying (single-engine airplanes and hang gliders.) I also love to play tennis, rollerblade, scuba dive, hike, water-ski, perform in community theatre and spend time with my wonderful dog, Taffy.

Hangin' with the kids! October 2007: I visited Haystack Mountain Goat Dairy in Niwot, Colorado - I've worked for them for 5 years, selling their award-winning goat cheese at Aspen's weekly Farmer's Market.

Another one of my passions is the flying trapeze, which I've learned at Club Meds around the world. Here I'm about to be "caught," in the circus show at Club Med Turkoise (Turks & Caicos) in November 2006.
