I provide services that deliver world-class outcomes. My work experience has afforded me the privilege to develop and implement many communications strategies and community initiatives designed to improve the health and well-being of children, youth and families throughout northern Colorado and the United States.
I have established relationships with local, regional, state and national public health, education, civic, media and business leaders—relationships which prove essential to the success of policies and programs. I am respected as a collaborator who achieves all I set out to do, going above and beyond expectations.
Some of my most rewarding work has been leading bicycling and walking enthusiasts in Fort Collins and Loveland to become a united voice in safety education and advocacy. This has included co-developing one of the most recognized bicycle safety education programs in the nation, the Bicycle Ambassador Program. I also led a three-year process (funded by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment) to build awareness about and collaboration among providers around the medical home approach to health care, the results of which have become a statewide model. Other processes I initiated are now sustained programs, like CHAMP, a character development program delivered through sports.
For 10 years, I was the executive director of Healthier Communities Coalition of Larimer County. Prior to that, for 18 years, I served as the public relations officer for the Education Commission of the States. Time flies when you’re having fun!
