Cindy began her studies at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio where she earned an undergraduate degree in interior design and architecture and a minor in art history. She continued her studies at Colorado State University, pursuing a Master’s degree in Historic Preservation and Public History. Immediately following graduation, she worked as staff preservationist for the Miami Purchase Preservation Fund, a Cincinnati based non-profit that focused on restoring historic inner-city properties for low-income housing. From there, she returned to Colorado to work for the Colorado Historical Society’s fledgling State Historical Fund. During her four years on staff at the Fund, she worked with potential applicants to create “fundable” work plans and budgets.

While raising her boys, she continued to work in the preservation arena as a privately contracted grants writer and preservation project manager while volunteering on Golden’s Historic Preservation Board. She also served as board member, and ultimately as President, of the Friends of the Astor House and Clear Creek History Park in Golden.

Since 2005, she has divided her time between her preservation work as Easement Administrator for the Colorado Historical Foundation (CHF) and Preservation Services Director for Colorado Preservation, Inc. (CPI).

Preservation for a Changing Colorado

The 2017 update, Preservation for a Changing Colorado, resulted from a partnership between Colorado Preservation and History Colorado and Colorado Preservation, Inc. Prepared by Clarion Associates, the new report and accompanying website document the economic benefits of rehabilitation projects, analyzes property values and neighborhood stability in local historic districts, and summarizes the increasing impact of heritage tourism, private preservation development and the success of Colorado’s Main Street program. In a key finding, researchers found that for every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado leads to $1.03 million in additional spending, 14 new jobs, and $636,700 in increased household incomes across the state! The 2017 report also considers the important role preservation plays in helping Coloradans provide new spaces for creative communities and co-working, create and sustain meaningful places, respond to the state’s changing demographics, and address climate concerns.
