I am a retired first grade teacher who started volunteering with Project Helping shortly after retiring. I have volunteered for many events and have enjoyed them all. Besides volunteering I still sub at my old school and love it as much as I did teaching. I am at the pool almost daily and love doing pilates. I also like to read and spend time with my family.
Hello! I'm a wife, and the mom of three grown children. My career has always centered around things like child care, nutrition and wellness. I became acquainted with Project Helping when the nonprofit I work for began having teams from Project Helping help us! I'm so excited to play a small role in the huge work Project Helping is doing!
I am majoring in Business Administration at San Diego State University. My favorite meal of the day is breakfast. I love people's company, the freedom of choice, the practice of discipline, and sunshine. Dimples and smiles are my greatest weakness. Volunteering, without a doubt, always makes me feel better.
I am a full-time student at Metro State in Denver, studying accounting. I love volunteering to help with my anxiety and depression and would like to learn more of the business side of the organization. I plan to start my own non-profit in 5-10 years.
I'm excited to be joining the Project Helping Leader Team! Volunteerism is a huge passion of mine, and I have a background in managing volunteers professionally and through volunteer work with various organizations. Besides volunteering, I enjoy traveling, snorkeling and a good night of karaoke every now and then! Fun fact - I was married in the beautiful state of Alaska.
How are ya? I’m Kayla. Originally a Floridian, I decided to move to the beautiful Centennial state for work and a change of pace. By day I help out with insurance needs at GEICO and by night I’m either driving for Lyft or immersed in a good book. I wanted to become a part of Project Helping because Denver and the community has already given me so much that I wanted to give back with my time and efforts and make some friends along the way!
I grew up on the east coast and found my way out to Denver in 2010. When I am not working you can find golfing, practicing yoga, and my latest hobby of rock climbing. My biggest passion is helping others and seeing everyone I meet to be successful...Without happiness nothing great happens!
I'm simply looking for a way to help others. My goal is to use this intention and these actions to build community here in Denver and to feel more connected and healthy. Project Helping seems like a perfect vehicle to become engaged and add something greater to my life. I'm a lover of music and dance, sports, outdoor life, sci-fi, geekery and making as many jokes as possible. I have a history of volunteering in community radio, environmental programs, art and community celebrations. I'm looking forward to volunteering with you.
Hi, I am Jamie and I am originally from Illinois. I lived in Minnesota for 6 cold years before moving to Denver. I have now been in Colorado for one year and am so happy to be able to call this beautiful place home. I enjoy reading, snowboarding, pretzels, hiking, traveling, soccer, penguins, and spending time with friends and family. My favorite part about volunteering is meeting new people and help them have an uplifting experience!
I am a former entrepreneur, current stay at home mom to 2 elementary school boys. I volunteer on a political campaign, play the piano, am learning conversational french, and want to get to know people in the community better by helping others and getting to know my fellow volunteers. I love laughing and french fries, and have a serious addiction to nut butters.
Hi! I am Jenny. I love pickles. Hate onions. I’m form Colorado. And I love helping people. I want to make an impact on someone else’s life. That’s why we’re all here! Isn’t it!?
I believe wholly in the four values that I center my life around being family, friends, impact and fun. I have a wonderful wife, a beautiful daughter and amazing golden retriever that motivate me, keep me busy and bring me pure joy every day. I love hearing people's stories and helping solve challenges for my friends, and I am always looking for new friends. No matter what kind of day I am having, I know that my day is typically much better than so many other people and devote my time to trying to make others' lives easier as I am able. If you remember a kid in middle or high school who was constantly being yelled at for making jokes or being the class clown, well then you pretty much understand me. I am the type of person who loves to have fun while working really hard. For me personally, the power of laughter is stress relieving and impactful, which allows for truly great things to happen and bonds to form.
Colorado has been my home for about 2 years now. I take advantage of the outdoors as much as possible. Whether that is camping, hiking, skiing, or just enjoying the Colorado sunshine. When I'm not outside, I am hanging in the kitchen baking as many sweets I can handle!
I'm a senior studying Psychology at The University of South Florida. My hobbies are mainly food related. But I also enjoy being active, like going to the gym, rollerblading, and kayaking. I like to keep busy so most of my time is spent on school, my family, and being the first kindful leader in Tampa!
Hi I'm Liam, I serve in the military for as a Network Technician for the Air Force. I'm a New England transplant who is looking forward to making Colorado his home. I have two daughters I love very much and I want to be a great role model for them as they grow up.
I am a born and raised Texan that is a recent Colorado transplant! I initial move to this great state looking to start my career and build my network in the Denver metro community. beyond that, I love to spend the summer months out hiking and fishing amongst gorgeous Colorado streams and rivers. In the winter you can find me in the same mountains slaying what Colorado is known for, it's epic skiing. When I am not in the mountains I enjoy hanging in the city dining with friends and of course the new folk I meet out and about.
In my aim to live life to the fullest, I believe I need to help others to do the same! In addition to volunteering, I am also passionate about music and philosophy. I like to write songs and ponder the meaning of life and existence. There's not a lot that ticks me off because I aim to keep a level head at all times and to take a wide-angle view of any frustrations. However, if I'm allowed one complaint, I will admit that I don't like being woken up before my alarm!
I am a father of a beautiful and kind 10-year-old daughter, an elementary music teacher, and a marathon runner. I love the city of Tampa, and I am excited to partner with Project Helping to help fulfill the mission here!
I am Shawna Walton, I am 15 years old and I want to be able to help the ones in need. I want to be a teacher and a social worker when I am older. I am also in the Bear Creek High School Marching Band, and play the clarinet.
Hi! I am currently a high school junior in Colorado. I am extremely passionate about science, math, and volunteering! I have lived all across the country in Michigan, Wisconsin, Alabama, Alaska, and Illinois but so far Colorado is my favorite! I am so thankful for the opportunity to give back to my community!
Hello. My name is Lynn. I live in Denver, but am originally from St. Paul, Minnesota. I volunteer because I want to spread kindness, and because volunteering helps me achieve my goal of outwardly living my values. In my free time I teach yoga, and spend time outside snowboarding, biking, or simply enjoying my neighborhood.
Hi, I'm Bridget and I have lived in Denver for a little over two years. I have an amazing dachshund named Giuseppe and I think he could become internet famous. I enjoy hiking, reading, dancing and film photography. I look forward to volunteering alongside you at many PH events in the future!
Hi! My name is Tracy. I come from a family of four and a big extended family. My passions include makeup, fashion, and helping others. On a daily basis I love to laugh with my friends and go on fun adventures. Also, it's always a good day when you're surrounded by fuzzy blankets watching a Netflix show eating ice cream 🙂
My name is Felice and if there's only one thing you should know about me is that I love puns. I also have a weird affinity for fanny packs, umbrella hats, and all things that should be helpful but are just deemed ridiculous. I'm also a firm believer in being positive about life -sometimes I may even be stubbornly optimistic. I'm excited to make a difference and I'm happy to be part of this organization.
Hi, I'm Brandon. I'm a daddy to a wonderful 4yr old little girl named Eva Lou. My full-time job is being a leasing manager for a brand new apartment community. I love trying out new restaurants, thrift store shopping, and having fun no matter what!
I am a proud United States Marine who is currently stationed in sunny southern California. My original hometown is a cold rainy place called Delaware and the Corps has taken me all around the world for the past 12 years. I have had the pleasure of living in countries like South Africa, Japan, Thailand and Argentina, while visiting and deploying to many more. Outside of the workplace I maintain a part-time student status and continue to pursue other passions which range from learning a new language to advancing in various martial art disciplines. As a cornerstone for character and a building block for compassion, I believe in the idea that service to others is truly a service to yourself. I am happy to be a member of Project Helping team.
My name is Julie and I am the Operations Manager for the Baby Haven, a non-profit, licensed and quality rated, child care center that serves the community as well as pregnant women and new mothers struggling with addiction. My career has been dedicated to serving families, women and children in many different capacities from teacher, mentor, trainer, grant writer and administrator. My sincerest belief is that children are the most valuable resource we have on this earth and that investment in our children and their families yields the very best outcomes for us all.
I'm an I.T. Consultant and moved to San Diego 5 years ago. I'm originally from New Jersey. I like to run, hike, bike and do yoga. I enjoy listening to music and being around great friends and family.
I'm a Texas-raised, New York-grown, and Colorado-transplant 🙂 You can catch me at my desk 9-5 where I work at a public relations firm in Denver. I'm a 530pm runner and a 9pm writer/advocate for eating disorder recovery. I love to hike, play piano, read, and I tend to chew on my pointer finger when I'm nervous (sigh, some habits die hard.) I also have a lovely lil rescue doggie named Juno.
I am a 22 yr old female always looking to stay busy! I am a firm believer that if you give first, you will receive all you need for yourself. Let’s be the answer to those prayers someone has prayed asking for help!
My name is Sarah I'm a single mother of two, but a mom to many. I am very artistic and outgoing my favorite hobby is dancing. I'm often singing. I love the summertime. One of my favorite places is to be is next to the ocean and the beach. I am born and raised in Colorado, and I still hate the snow.
My name is Michael Caraway and I am excited to get to know you. I'm originally from Iowa and moved out to Denver about 2 years ago. I love hiking, business, and hanging out with my wife and pup. I find significance in helping others and look forward to making in impact alongside each of you.
My name is Michelle and I am excited to join the Kindful Leader team. I have been married for 7 years and have 6 amazing kids! I have always been an active volunteer in our schools, but with our youngest heading to college this fall, I am excited to expand my volunteer horizons and find new ways to serve. I look forward to meeting you all and working with Project Helping!
I am a graduate of the University of Colorado (class of '04) and a Broker Associate with LIV Sotheby's International Realty based in Boulder, CO. My wife and I live in Golden with our 12 year old son and 3 dogs. We absolutely love the outdoors (skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, road biking etc). We both enjoy meeting new people in our community and staying active with all of the exciting things Colorado has to offer.
Until the last two or three years, I never would've considered even going to a volunteer event alone, let alone leading one. When I moved to Colorado, after going through a couple tough years, I made a promise to myself to start feeding good back into my community. It's been amazing for my emotional health, and I'm excited to start helping other people experience the same benefits of volunteer work. Also a big fan of puppies.
I'm a Colorado native and love this state! I live with my husband, teenage daughter, 2 dogs, a cat and a turtle (almost a zoo!) in south Centennial/Littleton area. We try to spend as much time outdoors as possible experiencing this beautiful world. I work for a global electronics distribution and solution company where I venture from Accounting and IT to process design and training on a daily basis. I love what I do! Camping, hiking, picnics, playing volleyball and just getting together with family/friends are my favorite past times. I added in volunteering a couple of years ago and find as many opportunities to get involved with the community. You will usually see me with my husband, daughter, parents and friends at many events as I like to spread the wonderful feeling of volunteering with everyone! Can't wait to see you at an event soon!
I've been in education the last 22 years, currently working with students with special needs. In my spare time, I foster puppies for RezDawg Rescue. I also enjoy traveling and seeing the world.
I'm from Kentucky and I have lived in Denver since 1995 and have two grown children. I love anything people, networking and building relationships. I'm passionate about volunteering. As a life long volunteer, if I get sad or in a funk, I go serve someone and all is right with the world again.
Born and raised a Marine Corp brat turned army wife of 10 years and now a civilian/accountant for the last 8 years, I am a twice married mom of 3 teenage daughters, and wife to a very loving man. The part of my story of having been a teen mom who utilized assistance services draws me to give back as a family through volunteering for meaningful services. I raise my daughters to strive to be a good force within the world, and firmly believe that global change starts with local impact.
Worked as a production support engineer for many years, I am now working for my husband who owns his own CPA firm. The rest of my days are filled with spending time with my family, including my two daughters Vanessa and Audrina. Enjoy running and snowboarding as hobbies, golfing in the summer, traveling when I can.
