Outside of work, you can likely find her curled up on with a hot cup of coffee, practicing yoga, baking, or exploring the beautiful Lone Star State (in particular, the vast and mystical West Texas desert).
Most of us are aware that Arizona is home to several dormant volcanoes, but not everyone knows you can hike through lava that erupted from them. Located near Sunset Crater, the Lava Flow Trail takes visitors on a fascinating journey past 1,000-year-old ash, geological formations, and patches of smoothed-over ground once covered in scalding liquid rock.
