Susan Kolinski (Director of Development) joins BETC with a background in event planning and catering, sales, marketing and fundraising for local and regional non-profit organizations. Susan’s experience includes Colorado’s Ocean Journey (Denver Aquarium), the Boulder Philharmonic, Boulder Ballet and PeakArts Academy as well as the Boulder Chamber of Commerce. Happily embracing the responsibility of being a Colorado native, Susan resided in Vail for three years where she sold convention groups for the Marriott Resort while finessing her skiing technique. When Susan is not working, she can be spotted with her husband and two dogs hiking anywhere there is a forest path, mountain biking, making birthday cakes upon request to celebrate friends and practicing her newly discovered hobby of making leaded glass pieces. Susan is also a Realtor and holds an active license. With a nod to her heritage, Susan is actively learning conversational German in preparation for her next adventure abroad.
