My love of the written word drove me to choose communications as my profession, and I’ve been fortunate to work in marketing for more than fifteen years.

Working for large companies such as L.L.Bean, Stifel Nicolaus, and Bank of America allowed me to work with some of the best marketers in the world – learning intricate details of writing, graphic design, and promotional concepts. Having spent a portion of my career with smaller organizations, such as Schmueser Gordon Meyer and the Glenwood Springs Chamber Resort Association, I fully understand the unique aspects of marketing with smaller budgets and staff, workload balancing, and time management.

Currently, I am the Director of Sales and Marketing at Ironbridge Golf Club and Mountain Community in Glenwood Springs, where I oversee all marketing and public relations efforts for the golf club, restaurant, and undeveloped real estate, while also booking and coordinating events.  Through Keister Communications, I have the honor and privilege of overseeing and executing all marketing and public relations efforts for YouthZone, a youth advocacy organization in Glenwood Springs.  From 2011 to 2013, I served as the Marketing and Operations Manager with the Roaring Fork Business Resource Center, where I counseled small businesses on marketing and public relations efforts through the Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) of Colorado.  It was then that I saw a need for marketing support for businesses in the Roaring Fork Valley, and  through Keister Communications, I am able to work closely with clients to help them execute their specific marketing initiatives. My marketing expertise ranges from both the development and execution of strategic marketing plans to creative work, such as writing and graphic design.

On a personal level – I enjoy spending time with my husband, Ken, and our canine child, Gunnison. I like to read, cook, walk, and camp in gorgeous places. Colorado is an inspiring and breathtaking place to live and work – and I look forward to new adventures every day!
