I was born in Aspen Colorado. My Father owned a cattle ranch, in what is now known as Snowmass-At-Aspen. A beautiful area to grow up among the mountains, wildlife and seasons. When I was about 8 years old my Father felt I would get a better education in California, he sent me to his sister. I went to perocial school in California, also learning ballet, taking piano & English riding Lessons. The summer was always spent in Colorado, playing, hearding cattle, working on the ranch. The best of both worlds.
