When I moved to Denver and rented at The Seasons, I spent weekends that year on my bicycle exploring various neighborhoods.  I selected Cherry Creek East (CCE) to buy my home as an upscale, compact, well developed, walkable, connected neighborhood, adjacent to the Cherry Creek Bike Trail.  After I became active in the Cherry Creek East Association RNO (CCEA) a group of our neighbors created the Cherry Creek Area Plan then steered that plan through adoption by the Denver City Council. That excellent plan was adopted intact into Blueprint Denver 2040.  I support both plans as written.
I am a graduate of the Denver Regional Council of Government’s Citizens Academy and with formal zoning training (albeit in Minnesota).  I have served on the CCEA Board for multiple terms and am currently Chair of Mobility Committee and a member of the Development Committee.

Interested in understanding what CCEA members really want in terms of development and helping the community navigate change. 
Board Member since 2016 and currently leads CCEA Development Committee.

Loves our walkable, tree lined streets, friendly and sociable residents, casual atmosphere, and easy access to nearby amenities. See me out walking our wire haired fox terrier most days.

I have been a resident of Cherry Creek East since 2010 and love the feeling of 
living in a small, cohesive neighborhood with big city advantages.  I enjoy our famous neighborhood “walkability” as well as the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and mountain hikes.
Having served on the CCEA Board and being a current long-term member of the CCEA Development committee, I have come to realize how dramatically various development projects can affect the present and future livability of a neighborhood.  I believe that community attention and participation will provide the best future for Cherry Creek East. 
Almost my entire professional life was spent in public accounting with its’ emphasis on excellence, accountability, and client service. I hope to utilize those skills in working to 
ensure that our neighborhood grows in ways that are beneficial to our residents and that are in keeping with our neighborhood plans and character.

I moved to Denver from San Diego in 2015 and feel so fortunate to have found my home in Cherry Creek East! My professional life, spanning 30 years in San Diego, focused on community building and relations, bringing together diverse groups, and establishing coalitions for the attainment of common goals, and increased understanding.

As the Community Relations Director for Jewish Federation, I wrote and secured funding for a new transformation plan. I created programs that successfully engaged leaders in the religious, nonprofit, civic, corporate, political, and academic arenas, educating the community on the value of collective impact, civil dialogue, and consensus building.

Previously I worked for Jewish Family Service where I directed the economic recovery program and developed an Employment Network. Prior to working in the nonprofit world, I spent 20 years in higher education at the University of CA where I directed a program creating local, statewide, national, and international opportunities connecting both students and faculty to experiential endeavors outside of the university.

Since moving to Denver, I have been active as a substitute elementary school teacher, primarily in the Cherry Creek Community. I serve as the co-host of our Denver Days Block party and organize our food/support drives that benefit Metro Caring, an organization that seeks to end food insufficiency.  As residents of the Cherry Creek East Community, we live among friendly and generous neighbors who seriously look out for each other’s well-being. My motivation for wanting to join the Board is to increase friendships and involvement with neighbors who sincerely seek greater connectivity to our community.

I consider myself a resourceful connector and problem solver with more than ten years of experience in special event planning which is a skill set I would like to bring to the Board. By strengthening the bonds within our neighborhood, with diversified input, our unified voice will help us best achieve our community goals.

I moved to Cherry Creek East from Los Angeles in 2020, and was made to feel welcome due to friendly neighbors. The social opportunities offered by the association provide a unique resource to many who arrive as newcomers.  I am interested in helping maintain the existing community connections. Currently, I have a liaison role as the Neighborhood Watch coordinator between CCE and Denver Police District 3.  I hope to continue learning about CCE’s place within greater Denver, and how we can optimize relationships with city council and officials. I work part-time in editing for a newspaper affiliated with Denver-based Media News Group, and have a broader career background in corporate marketing.
We currently have five open CCEA Board positions.  You may vote for up to five candidates.
