What have you been up to since you were honored as a 40 under 40 award winner?
In February of 2005, I moved to Denver to accept a position at the Downtown Denver Partnership. I also am chairwoman of the Auraria Higher Education Center Board of Directors
and of the Denver Commission on Homeless
. I also co-founded and co-chair theDenver Startup Week
and launched the Rocky Mountain West Urban Leadership Symposium
. Last year I was named "9 News Leader of the Year,"
