A HEART FILLED DONATION

A Colorado woman in need of a new heart recently received the gift of life after waiting more than 125 days at University of Colorado Hospital.

Doctors estimate most patients wait a month or two, but Tammy Harper’s condition required her to have a strict match.

To make matters more difficult, Tammy had to deal with a life-changing donation nearly a decade ago. She thought about the past while waiting on the present.

SISTERS TURNED ENTREPENEURS 

Five miles south of the Wyoming border is a place where silence and song intertwine.

The Abbey of St. Walburga will celebrate its 80th year next in June 2015. For the past eight decades, it has provided sisters with a place to pray.

These days, the Abbey also provides them with a place of business. Recently, Photojournalist Anne Herbst and I profiled the 'sisters turned businesswomen'.

PUPPY PRISON

Teaching your dog to be obedient can be a difficult and expensive task. That’s why hundreds of Coloradans turn to a unique program the state offers each year.

It’s a program that pairs pups up with prisoners. The prisoners spend weeks, sometimes months teaching the dogs new tricks and skills. At the same time, the prisoners learn a lot also.

In May 2015, Photojournalist Sean Towle and I went from the State Capitol to a State Prison to tell this story.

WILD ANIMAL SANCTUARY

Far from the fields of the Sahara Desert is a place where wild animals are given new lives.

The Keenesburg Wild Animal Sanctuary is home to more than 350 lions, tigers and bears (to name a few). Each animal comes with an interesting background.

I went behind the scenes at the sanctuary to give viewers a glimpse into this amazing place. It's a place the public can only see from a distance.
