Philanthropy Comes Full Circle

Now a Fellow at El Pomar, I recently realized that I have come full circle. What started out as an interest in high school has since bloomed into a postgraduate career. Looking back on my excursions through rural Colorado, it is understandable why I value El Pomar’s statewide focus. While the major populations in Colorado are found along the Front Range, some of the most committed individuals live where nobody is looking.

Hunting Down a New Path

Playing outside, going for a swim, hiking, hunting, fishing: these are all easily accessible for most Coloradans. Being physically active and enjoying everything Colorado has to offer is an amazing privilege but others are stripped of that privilege or simply do not have the opportunity due to disabilities.

My HOBY Adventure

When a person volunteers for HOBY, they are not just a volunteer, they are family. HOBY is a huge network of people who love to learn about leadership, make new friends, and change lives for the better.

Leadership in the Face of Adversity

Horsing Around!

"Life, like horseback riding, can be fairly dangerous if you are not present and focused on the task at hand."

Step By Step, Region By Region

Anyone who has driven across Colorado on I-70 can see first-hand the remarkably varied geography of the state. Whether cruising through the golden plains of eastern Colorado-- or excitedly climbing Vail Pass for a weekend skiing in the mountains, the topography of Colorado is striking and awe-inspiring. As much as I adore the excitement and wonder of the natural beauty that surrounds residents of this state, I often fail to consider how the land we love uniquely shapes the people who live there.
