After moving to Colorado Springs in 1990, I’ve been a stone’s-throw neighbor to UCCS over two decades of its growth within District 1. A small business owner since 2007, I am the CEO of With Substance, Inc. – a web management and consulting firm that offers professional writing, editorial, layout design, public relations and media development.

My 30+ year career as an administrator and executive in academic and non-profit settings is particularly well-suited to public service, and since 2008, I have served locally as the Executive Director of the Southern Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce.

Throughout, I’ve become skilled at accomplishing a great deal with limited resources, while gaining a unique insight into the needs of small business.

I’m pro-business for all business, by supporting a strong bottomline across the board – from the business of investing in job growth, to the business of running a household. Large or small, the concerns of everyone “in the business” of residing in Colorado Springs is what creates our unique community.
