Cherry Creek East has been my home since 2011.  I am a Vice President at a major bank and have been in financing for over 20 years.  I believe that the more residents that are engaged in the activities within their neighborhood, the better opportunity we have to preserve the shared vision of our community.   My goals for the neighborhood include responsible development, improvement upon walk-ability and continued communication with resident's so that all voices are heard.  I am committed to preserving the quality of life our community affords each of us.

I am a Colorado native and in the awesome 80’s went to grade school just a few blocks from CCE.  My family has been in the single family and industrial real estate business in Colorado for 60 years.  I went to graduate school at Cornell where I received a J.D. and an M.B.A.  After graduating I practiced real estate and development law in Denver until being hired by Park Corporation, then one of the 50 largest privately owned companies in the U.S.  I became the CEO of several manufacturing subsidiaries and start ups and oversaw mergers and acquisition.  Our primary focus was on heavy industry, and production technology.  In 2006 I left Park Corporation to develop a private equity firm concentrating on opportunistic investing where we can add value by solving problems and creatively addressing market opportunities.   I purchased a commercial property in CCE several years ago and have recently converted it to our primary residence.  I am active with the CCE development committee and am part of the Board in an effort to help preserve and improve the wonderful, walkable, neighborhood that is CCE.

In January 1983, I became a Denver resident.  My family moved to the Cherry Creek East neighborhood in 2017 - already five years ago ! I enjoy walks in CC, its parks, restaurants and shops, and seeing the neighbors, especially their dogs! My interests: music, technology, transport alternatives to cars, digital art, astronomy, cosmology, geology, architecture, the future of connected smart cities, and a reduction of homelessness, carbon, excessive urban heat, and crime. Did I mention I love dogs, cats, all animals ?

As a recently retired Hospital Finance Administrator I can now devote time to CCEA. I want to give back to our community.  I’m honored to have been asked to serve as chair of the CCEA Membership Committee. With your help, I hope we can increase the number of our active members -- a larger voice is a voice that can be heard. We have an opportunity to structure the future of our neighborhood.  Will you join me as we inform neighbors and businesses of our important mission and how much impact can be gained by working together?

Please consider volunteering to assist with membership outreach-it is easy, fun and social. I’m at for more information.  THANKS !

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 work mobility issues for the CCEA Board.  I look forward to joining Barry Lazarus when we bike the Garfield Neighborhood Bikeway in the next two years…after six years of work.  As a graduate of the Denver Regional Council of Government’s Citizens Academy and with formal zoning training (albeit in Minnesota), I also work with Bill Tanner in the Development Committee.

I am a new resident of Cherry Creek East, just moving back to Denver after spending 20 years in Seattle WA.  I am a Metropolitan State University of Denver graduate and my career has been focused in the tech industry working in various leadership roles tied to managing sales and global partnerships.   I moved to this area because I fell in love with our tree lined streets and nearby access to great restaurants and entertainment. I enjoy biking and walking in our nearby parks and bike paths.  My goal is to continue to grow our CCE community, building on the great work former and current board and committee leads have achieved over the years.

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.
