Meet Krystal Thompson!

Tell us about yourself.

I am passionate about decorating, shopping and helping people find “home.” I’m a Colorado native with a background in both marketing and mortgage banking, and I love living in Potter Highlands. You might find me checking out all of the amazing new foodie destinations around Denver with my husband Troy, walking my super cute dogs Peyton and Bianca, or painting up a storm in my home studio.

How did you get involved with Localworks?

A fellow co-worker was on the board, and I loved seeing what she was able to do in the City of Wheat Ridge, so I applied and the rest is history!

What other local organizations are you involved with?

I am the Membership and Marketing Director of the Tavern League of Colorado. We protect on premise liquor licenses.

Favorite Localworks program?

I love the Mid-Century Modern Home Tour and Friday Night Live.

What do you love about Wheat Ridge?

My grandparents lived here while I was growing up so the memories are strong. It brings a sense of family and togetherness just driving by all of the amazing restaurants and shops that have brought families closer for decades. I love the sense of community and the endless opportunities for a community to evolve.
