My wife, Tammy, and I have lived in Highlands Ranch for about 14 1/2 years. I'm 65 and she's 59. We ended up in the community because we've always lived in South Metro and we found the right house at the right time.
Working with people
I'm an outside property adjuster for homes in the Denver metro area. My favorite thing is the variety of claims I can get. Plus, the variety of people that I meet and deal with. Today I met a 130-pound Malamute dog. I've had very, very few problem people. The vast majority of them have been great. It's always great when you can be face-to-face with people.
Where I work can vary, I can go up to Longmont, Erie and Colorado Springs. In fact, Monday, I'm going to Fountain.
I'm involved in Cherry Hills Community Church's Manna Care food ministry. It's an outreach to the community and we've been doing that for at least four years. It's like a food bank where people who are having trouble making ends meet financially can come here and pick out food. Basically, I walk through the food line with them. Sometimes you can draw people out from themselves and they will share pretty deep stories.
What I love about the community
There's a lot of recreational opportunities for sure. The Highlands Ranch Community Association's winter cultural series has been going on for many years and this is our first year attending. We try to take advantage of it, especially when it's only $10 per person. Where else can you see something like Opera Colorado for that little?
