Sorrel and her family have called the Yampa Valley their home since 2001. She and her husband, Chris, decided they wanted to raise their family in a more rural community so they left the suburbs of Denver and headed to the hills! Her three children, Emilee, Tanner and Peyton have enjoyed the various activities that our community has to offer including; dance, volleyball, snowboarding, hippotherapy, adaptive skiing, lacrosse and hockey. As you can see, she spends a lot of her time being a mom, but when she gets a little free time she enjoys hiking, camping, jogging, shopping and reading. Sorrel also enjoys writing about herself in the third person (HA HA, just making sure you are still awake)!
