Above & Beyond

July 28, 2012

At the top of Mount Evans.

It was love at first sight when the universe gifted us sweet Rachel Keeter.  Her presence on Team Sweetlife this summer goes far beyond Event Planning Intern.

Rachel shared a few words with us about the roads well traveled before landing in Colorado and what attracted her to the Rockies.

“Bring on Summer Timeee! I love Colorado in the summer! Mountain hikes, sunny patio, whitewater rafting, farmer’s markets, outdoor yoga, and cold local brews. It doesn’t get much better…until beginning my summer internship at Sweetlife Adventures.

After two years in college, I took a semester off to gain some clarity on my studies, to explore, and, of course, to take an adventure. I spent a month in Tanzania, Africa, helping to rebuild a local school, plant the foundation for a running water system, play futbol with the children, get my hair brushed by the village girls, and cook local foods. I gained so much more from Tanzania than I ever could have given. Africa was now not only on my mind but in my heart. Backpacking afterward, I visited England, Spain, and Ireland, which further enriched this wonderful overseas adventure.

Always smiling.

Once I graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Recreation and Leisure Services, I packed up my newly purchased Subaru, and began my drive to colorful Colorado. Ending in Breckenridge, I was able to pursue my dream of being a ski bum. And after a fabulous year in the mountains, I descended into Denver.

In early June, I started an internship with Sweetlife Adventure. Working with Kristi and Kirsten, we began to tackle the busy summer schedule. While gaining professional skills, I noticed I was growing personally. Truthfully, I had never experienced balance quite like this.

As an intern, I plan and participate in our weekly events. Marketing, networking, and adventuring the summer away! Not bad, eh? So, this is my summer. Full of sunny patios, outdoor yoga, mountain hikes, and whitewater rafting trips. And it doesn’t get any better than when it’s shared with beautiful, confident, and empowered women. I feel so fortunate to have an internship with this wonderful organization. After all … life is sweet. And it’s the perfect time of year for adventure.”

Thanks for sharing Rachel! We’re so grateful you’re here!
