Our Team

Our leadership team consists of:

Sarah Shepherd
Chief Executive Officer

Sarah has served dozens of Special Districts and non-profits in her various roles, overseeing successful TABOR elections, securing millions of dollars of successful government financing initiatives, grant applications and projects through private and public grants, strategic and capital project execution, and budget and operations oversight.

 

She’s founded and served many not-for-profit agencies, currently including the boards of St. John’s College, and the Colorado Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and has presented at conferences including: the Colorado Open Space Alliance summit, Denver Water Public Space Partners Meeting, and Special District Association Annual Conference.

 

What drives Sarah’s work is seeing the impact small, sometimes "invisible" organizations have in helping local communities access and enjoy natural and community resources to lead safe and meaningful lives.
