She hopes to collaborate with and elevate the mission of GFPC and create a sustainable organization to serve northwest Colorado for decades to come.

Kyleigh Lawler

   Kyleigh Lawler moved to Steamboat Springs over 15 years ago to enjoy the great outdoors, quickly realizing this was more than an outdoor town. She is now laying roots to raise her 7 and 9       year old daughters in Routt County.  She currently serves as the Special Events and Volunteer Manager with Northwest Colorado Health. Kyleigh is also an adjunct instructor at Colorado           Mountain College. Kyleigh is passionate about creating community connections, parenting, and advocating for healthy choices and quality of life. Kyleigh is encouraged by the positive work       and outreach Grand Futures Prevention Coalition has been doing and is looking forward to serving on the Board of Directors.  

Susie Baird

Originally from Nebraska and now settled in Granby, CO, Susan dedicated her career to nonprofit management and improving her community. She has served as a district library consultant, resource development for a community action agency, executive director of an economic development corporation, and assistant campus director for the University of Alaska Fairbanks, before becoming the executive director of, and retiring from, GFPC. All of her positions have had a youth-centered component, and that is why she feels it important to serve on the GFPC board. 

Our Board meets quarterly for 2-3 hours in either Steamboat Springs, Craig, or Granby. For information on joining our Board, please contact info@grandfutures.org.
