I cannot believe that only a few months ago I was walking across the stage of the Colorado Springs World Arena to receive my bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS). It was a bittersweet moment, to say the least. While I was proud of my accomplishment, I was also sad to say goodbye to the university that truly pushed me to reach my full potential.
So, as I left UCCS and suited up for my new job at El Pomar, I thought my extensive involvement at the university would become more limited as I turned my focus to new responsibilities as a first-year fellow. Little did I know I would join the team for a program that would lead me right back to the place I thought I’d left behind.
