Sharing User Model with Telescope + Houston


Hello Meteor community!

I’m new to MeteorJS and I’m putting together a website where I intend to use Telescope but would also like to have a CMS-like feature to the website. For those well versed in Telescope, If I’m starting with a vanilla Telescope installation how easy is it to tap into the user model to tie in Houston or any other customized User attributes I’d like to add. Am I going about this the wrong way, should I add Telescope to an existing Meteor app rather than using Telescope as the basis of my webapp?
