My name is Jaid and I am a Colorado native!

I have spent the last 6 years in Montana, spending much of that time working with volunteer organizations such as Key Club and AIDSpirit USA. I enjoy road trips, spending time with family, and taking my two dogs to Starbucks for puppacinos! I am so excited for the opportunity to serve this community!
