I know in my heart that man is good. That what is right will always eventually triumph. And there's purpose and worth to each and every life.

Influencing growth and change for non-profits

COMMUNITY LEADER

Utilizing my passion for advancing organizations, I spend much of my spare time working with non-profits throughout Colorado. Creating comprehensive marketing plans, financial sustainability platforms and operational efficiency reviews - keeping in mind they have limited resources. Often, my husband and I step in to help execute those plans. Oh, and fostering homeless pups. (That one is my favorite.)

·Collaborating with overpopulated and under-served shelters.
