    Kathy Trauner|Nov 16, 2022

She added that finding outlets for all that energy can be a challenge, especially given Colorado's summer heat. "In the open space, even at 8 in the morning, she gets overheated very easily.

    For someone who has always been interested in theater, Paige Ioerger knew at an early age that acting was not her calling. "I did a little of it when I was young," Ioerger said, "but I've stepped away from that. I have a little bit of stage fright, so I can't really do the onstage thing. But I did a little bit when I was younger." In elementary school she had small roles, singing in the chorus of shows. "I did that for 'The Little Mermaid' when I was in first grade, and then I did the same...
