7. Tell us about yourself.
I was born in San Diego but moved to Park City with my mom when I was 10. My dad stayed in California, so I feel like I got the best of both worlds as the mountains became my home but I still maintained some roots at the ocean.
After graduating from Park City High School, I got my Bachelor’s at the University of Utah and my Master’s at Westminster. I opened Cake in 2008 and moved it up to Main Street in 2011 so that the business would be more centrally located.
I met my Australian husband in the Caribbean, and snowboarding is his passion. We have happily built a life together here in Park City. We have a one year old son, Andrew, and two crazy cats.
8. Why Historic Park City?
I have always loved Historic Park City- just about every single street in Old Town holds a memory for me.
9. What is your favorite winter activity?
Cozying up by a fireplace!
10. Where do you ski?
I prefer to ski at Deer Valley and to snowboard at PCMR, however, I have a season pass this year at Canyons because it’s closest to my house.
11. Describe the perfect Historic Park City day.
It would have to include lunch at High West, a few runs on the hill, some shopping on Main Street and dinner at the Riverhorse.
