Susan Kolinski (Director of Development) joins BETC with a background in fundraising, sales, marketing and hospitality, event planning and catering for local and regional non-profit organizations. Susan’s career includes the Brown Palace Hotel, Colorado’s Ocean Journey (Denver Aquarium), PeakArts Association (administrative arm of the Boulder Philharmonic, Boulder Ballet and PeakArts Academy) and the Boulder Chamber of Commerce. Embracing the responsibilities of a Colorado native, Susan resided in Vail for three years where she sold convention groups for the Marriott Resort while attending Colorado Mountain College and carving out time to hit the slopes. When Susan is not working, she can be found with her husband and dogs hiking, mountain biking, celebrating friends by baking birthday cakes upon request and practicing designing and making leaded glass panels. Susan also holds an active real estate license, and, with a nod to her heritage, is actively learning German.
