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).
Sometimes, being a tourist in your own city leads to uncovering the most incredible hidden gems. Ventana Canyon Trail in Tucson is a perfect example: this underrated hike starts at the renowned Lowe’s Ventana Canyon Resort, yet it often gets overlooked in favor of other nearby trails. At 14 miles round-trip, it’s no walk in the park, but the reward is a 32-foot-long natural arch that frames the city and surrounding desert landscape in a picture-perfect way.
