Renée Pawlish

Although born in California, I've lived in Colorado most of my life. I went to college and graduate school locally, and I currently live in my dream home in the foothills west of Denver. I used to be a counselor, with a focus on teen sexual abuse issues and substance abuse, but then I moved into the IT field and never looked back. 

I have a dry wit, and I love to laugh. I enjoy hiking, riding my bike, and love living in the mountains. 

Where should I send them?
