Greetings from Summit County, Colorado. In 2000, I decided to put my 25 years of fitness expertise to good use. It was the start of a highly successful writing career, which lead to publication in Aspen Magazine, HerSports, The Professional Skier, Pregnancy Magazine, EPregnancy, Wired and many other print and online publications.
When I am not teaching fitness at Mountain Sport Fitness, My Summit County personal training business, I am a tour guide for the Breckenridge Heritage Alliance, a skier surveyor for Copper Mountain and a mentor for the Snowsport Outreach Society.
Highlights of my career include:
*Teaching a ski fitness week in Portillo, Chile
*Teaching fitness to the chorus of the Metropolitan Opera in New York City
*Working as a Master Trainer for Fitour
* Having my Prenatal Exercise Class featured on News 4 Boston
*Doing an exercise presentation for the Arthritis Foundation
*Being a Pilates Presenter for the Body, Mind and Soul Conference in Boston
* Spending a summer studying Italian in Perugia, Italy and teaching fitness to an international student body.
*Teaching a fitness class at a Global Unity Conference in a small medieval town outside of Prague.
I am also the author of a number of books, such as Winter Fitness: Mastering Life Through Love of the Slopes, and 101 Fitness Tips for Women. Additionally, I've written a few books for stylecareer.com, including:

Since my husband is a frequent business traveler, we use his frequent flyer miles to trot the globe on a regular basis. Our journeys have brought us to most of Europe, including the Czech Republic and Budapest, a good portion of the UK, a bit of South America and a bit of the Middle East.
Adventures a bit closer to home include most of the United States, Eastern and Western Canada and a little bit of Mexico and the Caribbean.
I am actively involved in social networking. As such, I have profiles on MySpace, Facebook, Linkedin, Eons and a few other networks. Additionally, I have done some forum moderation for iVillage.com and tripadvisor.com.
Recently, I decided to share my skills with other writers by becoming a Channel Steward for the Winter Sports Channel on Helium.com. This involves checking articles for correct facts and plagiarism, helping writers develop their unique voice and recruiting writers to join my channel.
Out of all the ski resorts in Colorado, why would you ski Breckenridge? Because Breckenridge has world class activties On the Slopes and Beyond.
And don't forget, 2009 marks the year of the Breck 150
