Chelsea Adamo – Compliance

I moved to Colorado after my husband, Dominick and I decided we couldn’t take another summer in Texas. The mountains called our name and here we are. I love all activities that require you be outdoors, hiking, camping, triathlons and sports requiring a frisbee. Dominick and I have one dog, Barley and she is a fantastic pile of affectionate energy.

Bon Iver, Vampire Weekend and Josh Garrels are usually in my CD player and there is probably some sort of biography or memoir nearby. I am also a certified personal trainer hoping to educate the world about healthier lifestyle choices and the joy of playing outside.
