I’ve worked in corporate philanthropy/community affairs for 14 years. Served as director of community relations for Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck law firm and manager of community relations and charities for The Denver Post. I’ve spent nearly all my career working with and/or for nonprofit organizations including marketing and public relations roles with the Children’s Museum of Denver and the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities. I realized early in my career that it is important to me to do work that makes a difference.I’m proud to serve on the boards of Hunger Free Colorado and The Denver Post Community Foundation. I also serve on the direct services grantmaking committee for the Women’s Foundation of ColoradoI am excited to return to the world of media and am proud to be part of the team at Denver7. The station and its people authentically care about this community, and I’m proud to help develop and lead our efforts in this arena.
Talk about Denver7’s community commitment
- Denver7 helps Coloradans navigate challenges and celebrate life in this state we all love, so they can make the best decisions for themselves and their families.
- Denver7 cares about this community – our community. We live here, work here and tell the stories that impact this community. It’s important to us that we have an authentic connection to it.
- Literacy is a big area of focus for us, as we know that reading is a crucial contributing factor to success in school and in life. Through our Read to Lead program, we work to help people of all ages learn to read and read more often.

Why does a partnership with CWHF appeal to you and Denver7?
- We love to tell stories about amazing people in our state, and this partnership provides us with the opportunity to recognize and tell the stories of some incredible Colorado women.
What are your thoughts about the importance of mentors and role models? How do you perceive that CWHF fulfills some of that?
- Hearing the stories of successful women from all walks of life can play a crucial role in the lives of young women. The women honored by CWHF serve as role models to girls across the state – showing them a wide variety of ways they can make a difference and succeed.
- We don’t know what we don’t know. Role models and mentors help us to learn what we don’t know. Through their experiences, our minds and worlds can be opened to new possibilities and opportunities. For young women, when they see someone who looks like them or comes from their neighborhood doing something they never would have thought to do, the impossible becomes possible.
How do we, together, put “her” back into history?
- For me, it’s all about storytelling, and CWHF gives us such a fantastic opportunity to do that. To share the stories of great women in our state. To remember the history and to inspire the future.
