Karli Bockelman
Moffat County Director

Karli is the Moffat County Program Director. Karli is a Craig native and hopes that in her position with Grand Futures Prevention Coalition she can be a catalyst for change in the community. It is her belief that if you can change or influence just one person in a positive way than you can create a more positive world. Although Karli has spent some time away from Craig, studying at University Colorado Boulder for a Bachelor's in Advertising and a Minor in Graphic and Website Design then living in Denver the past few years; she has always felt Craig is her home and she feels ready to take on the unique challenges this organization offers in the community it serves. In her free time Karli enjoys drinking "all the coffee", watching British period dramas, writing short stories, and adventuring in new, unexplored lands.
