Casey Sue Pratten might be described as a modern day renaissance woman. Her hobbies include swing dancing, hiking, astronomy, horseback riding, attending conventions like comic con, skiing (water and snow), traveling, and painting to name a few. Starting the first 20 years of her life in Orlando, Florida, she moved west after attaining her Associate's degree. In 2009 she was studying geology but soon realized it was not the best career path for her personality though she still enjoys the subject. Casey has held a variety of jobs from sushi chef to ranch hand and a variety of things in between. Growing up, most of her family vacations were to western states visiting national parks, dude ranches, and whitewater rafting. Those trips built a love of the west and Colorado became home because of all the outdoor adventure her wonderful friendships she's made over the past decade. A career in real estate presented itself and she feels it has been her long lost calling taking after her grandmother, a successful realtor in Orlando. One of Casey's rules to live by is "keep improving" whether that be career wise, physically, relationships, etc.; she is a firm believer in personal growth.
