I have been visiting Desert Mountain since 2013. In 2021, I purchased a home in the village of Mountain Skyline, along with my fiancé Tristen Woods and our giant German Shepherd, Yoshi.
While my favorite place on earth is the uniquely green desert of this community, we occasionally escape to our other home in Florida, when it gets too cold to swim at Desert Mountain.
Professionally, I’m a lawyer and co-founder of Jungle Law, an employment and defense firm headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri. Our firm also has a pro-bono wing that focuses on drafting legislation to protect wildlife and pets.
Previously, I was a professional oboist with the Tucson Symphony and the Arizona Opera. In 2015, I auditioned to become an NFL cheerleader with the Arizona Cardinals. Unfortunately, I was cut during try-outs…however I went on to become a cheerleader for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
My family has lived in Arizona for several generations, and I’m so happy to be back. I enjoy continuing their passion for supporting local and indigenous Southwestern artists.
I’m honored to serve on the HOA board, as well as the Covenants Committee.
