How did you hear about TVRC?

I first heard about TVRC when I moved to Wyoming in 2007. My husband, Jim Ligori, showed me the Kelly Property where he had attended camp in the early 90’s. We discussed how amazing it would be to both work for TVRC in the future. It would be the best of both worlds… life at camp as well as in Wyoming. Little did we know…..

What’s your favorite activity to do in the valley?

Anything outside! Before children, I was more adventurous in my downhill skiing, cross country skiing, hiking and fishing. However, life seems even sweeter when I spend outside time with my young family. I may not downhill ski all day, but skiing with my daughter is exhilarating. The hikes we take with kids may be shorter and less challenging, but much more rewarding in the end. I love catching fish, but seeing my kids reel in a trout is more exciting. In the winter, we even take the kids on our snowmobiles near Brook’s Lake. I still enjoy cross country skiing on my own. In the winter, it sometimes is my only solitude with a home constantly full of noise and activity.

Who or what inspires you?

Anyone who puts the needs of someone else above their own desires or agenda. I am inspired by anyone who loves others well.

What’s the best concert you’ve ever attended?

My favorite concerts were located in the small, sketchy concert halls which hosted my favorite band, Jump Little Children. For about 10 years when I lived in North Carolina, I would travel almost any distance to see them perform. My favorite venues to see them were The Orange Peel in downtown Asheville, Tremont Music Hall in Charlotte, or Cat’s Cradle in Chapel Hill.

If you could travel anywhere in the blink of an eye where would you go?

I think it would have to be Scotland. I have been to Scotland several times, but I really want to explore the Hebrides Islands. I love anything remote and scenic.

What’s your favorite trip or activity at TVRC?

I have not had the honor of going on any TVRC trips, however, I love camping in the Wind Rivers, especially around Square Top Mountain and Green River Lakes. My favorite camp activity at TVRC is Horseback riding.

What’s your favorite song to sing around the campfire?

‘A Rose in a Spanish Garden’ and ‘Take me Home, Country Roads’

If you could live in Jackson Hole in any era when what would you choose and why?

I would have loved living in Jackson in 1920. It would have been amazing to live in this new town and see the first ever all women’s Town’s Council. It was the start of something really big for women in the Equality State and the Nation.

What are you most looking forward to in your time at TVRC?

I really look forward to getting to know people from all over the world with different backgrounds. I have found real joy in so many of the relationships I have formed at camp through the years. I also want to keep the rich history and traditions of TVRC strong and relevant as we move forward. 82 years is quite a legacy!
