Preservation Services Director
(303) 893-4260 x236
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).
