Truly, there are a hundred reasons why I chose Acton (and Acton chose me), but the main reason my family and I are bringing Acton to Elko is simple: the world needs more entrepreneurs, independent thinkers and leaders. Acton Academy is a growing community of transformative schools in more than 60 locations, and we believe it is the most integral, innovative and enriching program out there. It provides the right setting for a child to explore the world with his or her own unique talents while also providing a space to advance their knowledge, gain insights into life’s tough questions and learn practical skills to help them thrive in today’s world.
Further, we believe in the ultimate importance of the family and the fundamental role the family plays in the hero's journey. My husband, Joe, and I are both fourth generation Elko County entrepreneurs. We currently live on Joe's family ranch west of Elko, where we raise beef, horses and our two children. It's through my many years of growing up in and around family businesses that I have become the entrepreneur I am today. My family and I are thrilled to be a part of the revolution! With Acton of the Rubies, Elko's youth will have the opportunity to truly embark upon their own hero's journey.
