Hey, Spike! tells of a hard-working lady from Boston

Picture this: You’re an attractive female in marathon running shape, and a business professional living in Boston.

What might be better?

Still, all of the above, but you’re residing and working in downtown Frisco for December and January.

Welcome to Cheryl Kauvar’s life.

“I am a managing partner at eThink Education LLC,” she offers. “We are a technology company that provides learning management systems to colleges and universities.”

Cheryl has a bachelor’s from George Washington University in Washington D.C., and an MBA from the University of Maryland.

She is rising at 6 a.m., to get online and meet the East Coast’s workday schedule, but is able to get out to run and ski.

During the holidays, her mother, Barbara, came out to visit. They walked Frisco, and rented a car to hit Breckenridge and see Vail. The duo experienced a sleigh ride dinner with Two Below Zero.

Cheryl’s assessment:

“I’m very much enjoying the small-town atmosphere Frisco provides. Everyone I’ve met is friendly and helpful. The mountain atmosphere is beautiful and such a change from the scenery on the East Coast. I’m enjoying my time here very much and being able to ski world-class mountains whenever I want.”

She had previously visited Denver and Colorado Springs, but this two-month stay marks her first visit to Summit County.

“I wanted to be close to the mountains,” she says. “Frisco seemed ideally located in the middle of it all. Matt and Kristen Moore’s Bear’s Den condo was appealing because I knew I wouldn’t have a car out here and this location offers easy access to Main Street and the free Summit Stage.”

“I’ve skied all over the East Coast, primarily in New Hampshire and Vermont,” says Cheryl.

While here, she is keeping up her marathon-training regimen.

“I’ve been running most of my life, although I’ve gotten more interested in long distance running in the past five years,” she comments. “I’ve completed two marathons: the Philadelphia Marathon and the Bay State Marathon in Lowell, Mass. I’m training to run the Boston Marathon this coming April, which is a life-long goal of mine having grown up in the Boston area.”
