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).
Ancient ruins aren’t difficult to find here in Arizona, but they aren’t always extremely well-preserved. Tonto National Monument in Roosevelt is somewhat of a rarity, remaining surprisingly intact despite being abandoned 700 years ago. Consisting of 40 rooms, this archaeological site is truly incredible to visit.
