Cultural Office of The Pikes Peak Region
During the month of October, arts & culture takes center stage in Colorado Springs and across the Pikes Peak region, as our community celebrates National Arts & Humanities Month. Orchestrated annually by the Cultural Office, our local Arts Month campaign elevates the visibility of arts & culture across El Paso and Teller Counties by showcasing local talent, providing opportunities for arts advocacy, supporting cross-sector collaborations, and creating new avenues for arts engagement and cultural enrichment.
Over time, my interest continued to grow, and I pursued my business degree at the University of Idaho. After graduation, I worked for two local banks and progressed my career to becoming AVP and branch manager. Years later, I moved to Colorado Springs and I found my passion as a financial advisor with Edward Jones.
Each day, I’m excited to come into the office and learn more about my clients and what’s important to them. I enjoy making tailored financial strategies that fit individual needs and goals. My goal is for you to feel comfortable, educated and understand your strategy throughout the process.
