Tell us about yourself.
- Colorado has always been home for me and even after living in another state and abroad, my roots are here in Wheat Ridge. On a professional level, I am the Principal of Marketing Analytics for a large Telecom company where my team and I work to enable data-informed decisions. I’m passionate about building community and I believe in the power of a smile and authentic conversation. Some of my favorite things include hiking, camping, general ‘adventuring’, and reading a good book on my porch with a cup of tea in hand.
How did you get involved with Localworks?
- Early 2014 I joined the Communications Advisory Committee to work on the rebrand from WR2020. From there I joined the board in 2015, then the Executive Committee in 2017 where I served as Secretary, then Vice President, and now President.
What other local organizations are you involved with?
- I volunteer as the girl’s middle school basketball coach at Saints Peter and Paul STEM School where I also serve on the School Advisory Committee and co-chair the annual gala. I also serve as an officer for Wheat Toast Toastmasters based here in Wheat Ridge.
Favorite Localworks program?
- It’s a tie between block party grants and the Criterium, especially the community ride! On a personal level my favorite part of being involved with Localworks is meeting our incredible volunteers, learning from my fellow board members, and working with the fantastic staff.
What do you love about Wheat Ridge?
- For me it’s all about the people. I love the fact that I can invite my friends over to join me for a walk down to the neighborhood park to watch the sun set, but it takes us an hour to go a half mile because so many neighbors want to stop and chat. And from there we can go down to the Ridge at 38 for any number of amazing places to eat (though admittedly Clancy’s is my favorite) and once again see our neighbors and friends. This town is where I grew up, and I love nothing more than seeing it succeed.
