When not assisting her clients in navigating these complex affairs, you can find JoEllen and her husband on the side of a mountain – hiking in Colorado in the spring, summer and fall, and skiing in the winter. And when they’re not tackling those mountains, they’re flying over them on their next travel adventure.
