Returning to Vista Verde has been a dream come true for Mandy. A job as a wrangler brought her to VVR almost 20 years ago after graduating from Colorado College, and the ranch has held a special place in her heart ever since. Mandy met her husband in Steamboat and enjoyed living the ski town life, while she worked as a special education teacher and had a tutoring business on the side. After two kids came along, the Zirkel Mountains again beckoned her to North Routt. Mandy is extremely happy to now call Clark home! She loves spending time in nature’s wonderland, but is especially fond of horseback riding, skiing, photography and camping with her husband, two kids and golden retriever.
