With that introduction, it occurs to us that it's nice to meet the people behind the emails you get! While I have interacted with many of you and even met a few, I wanted to take a moment to formally introduce myself and also a new summer staff member.
My name is Lynsey Georgen (pronounced George-n) and I am the new Development and Communications, or DevComm Manager. I work a hybrid schedule both at the office in Denver and from my home in Berthoud. I am a Colorado native, originally from Estes Park, and I have over a decade of experience in non-profit development with school, homeless outreach and violence prevention organizations, and the arts. I am also a professional photographer and artist. I have two adult children, two teenage boys, two one-eyed dogs, a couple of cats, and a man who continuously refers to me as his wife.
I am tremendously excited to be here!
At this time the state office has the Operations Manager position open. It is posted and will close next week. Should you know of anyone who might be interested, more info is on all major job sites and also here.
While we are in this transition, we are incredibly fortunate to have Alison, an accounting major at Gonzaga, who is home with her family in Denver for the summer. She initially requested to join us as an intern, however we were thrilled to invited her on as a staff member as her skills filled a number of our needs. She will stay through mid-August, assisting with many administrative and accounting duties on a part time basis.
