One of the best things about living in Denver is the weather. I know my California friends will never believe me, but being able to enjoy a snow storm on Tuesday and 60 degree weather on Friday really does happen – and it is glorious.
After much delay, I’m happy to share with you a few pictures and stories from Sochi! On top of being at the Olympics, getting a new job (post coming soon!), and my computer dying for a few days, it’s been almost impossible to blog.
Sochi was a long, but incredibly fun month. I’ve been happily home for a couple of weeks now but can definitely say that I miss our cheery hotel staff and USA House front desk shenanigans.
Here are a few of my favorite moments from Sochi 2014. Click for larger versions!
The one thing Josh asked for from Russia is a big old furry hat – so I bought him this leather and raccoon beauty! We call it the “Coon Hat” (very original).

It’s been a whirlwind past month but I am officially back in the USA after working the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games! Despite some negative press leading up to the event (and during for some of the media hotels), I had an absolutely amazing time – and dare I say it, but I actually miss Krasnaya Polyana and the USA House in the center of the Coastal Cluster.
I plan on making a full post about some of my experiences, but as I arrived in last night after almost 30 hours of travel, I think I’m just going to take a few days to relax in the mountains, catch up on all of the shows I couldn’t watch while in Russia, and of course SLEEP!
It has been a whirlwind of a couple weeks! In the midst of putting on this huge event in my department I was incredibly lucky to have attended the Sports Business Journal’s Game Changers conference, an event for women in sports. Not only did I get to know our Chief Marketing Officer, General Counsel, Chief of Operational Excellence (which is such a cool title), and Director of Training Sites and Partnerships better (such a crazy opportunity… and all those powerful people are women by the way), but I also met some of the other amazing women who were in attendance. One of our very own even won an award!
