I was raised on a 5th generation cattle ranch in rural Northeastern New Mexico. I enjoyed traveling when I was younger (still do of course - work just gets in the way) and spent a great deal of time in Mexico, Europe and 5 years on the island of Maui. I have always stayed in B & B’s or private vacation rental homes and think that it is hands down the best way to experience a vacation and to learn more about the area and the culture you are visiting.
After spending about ten years in Los Lunas NM - (starting a family, selling real estate and developing a keen interest in animal health and behavior), we made the move to Fort Collins in 2003 in order for me to obtain training to become a veterinary technician. I spent seven years working in veterinary ophthalmology and small animal internal medicine, and am currently working at the CSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital as their Service Excellence Client Liaison.
We moved into this home in 2010 because we had outgrown our townhome and wanted to stay in the same school district. It took about two years to find the perfect home for us and we were the lucky ones to happen to drive by when the Realtor was pounding the for sale sign into the yard and made the offer that night. It was a crazy blizzard when we looked at the house and we couldn't see anything out any of the windows and didn't know if there were any trees or even a yard behind the house. To our delight, when we came back to take a look around after the storm, we got a wonderful surprise; it has not only a huge yard, but tons of trees, a garden area, open space and a creek right behind the house.
We have been updating both the interior and exterior as well as doing a few landscaping projects each summer. We want to share our home with people visiting for both work and pleasure and hope that they will appreciate our home as much as we do.
