Chris Mendenhall

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Chris’s life has meandered far from her degrees in sociology and elementary education from the University of Colorado but has now come full circle with the many years she put in as an administrator in the legal field.  After being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years and many subsequent years volunteering and working within the Boulder Valley School District, Chris operated a successful freelance office services business for a variety of clients, including Milgrom & Daskam. 

Chris’s travel interests recently prompted her to take her work on the road while living in Europe for a year, and she delights in sharing what she learned from those experiences through writing and speaking opportunities. While at home in her native Colorado, Chris enjoys skiing, hiking, biking, dancing, and perfecting her language skills in Spanish, Italian, and French.
