She developed her love of mountains, music, photography, and all things outdoors during that time! Heather likes disc golf and tennis in her leisure time, as well as skiing, traveling, hiking, bicycling, and dining at Telluride's many fantastic restaurants. Heather's passion for Telluride hasn't wavered over the years, and she still wakes up every day in astonishment that she gets to call this amazing location home.
