Welcome Associate Bobbie Wolfe
November 19, 2019 - The CWDC is excited to welcome Bobbie Wolfe to the team as a career pathways associate. Bobbie plays a critical role in the implementation of CWDC’s key initiatives, including the advancement of sector partnerships and career pathways as key strategies for talent development in Colorado. In her work, Bobbie will largely be focused on supporting the Lives Empowered initiative through the development of retail career pathways and the implementation of upskilling programs for frontline retail workers in Colorado. Bobbie provides project management support to the initiative and will focus on identifying competency-based career pathways for retail workers that include training for skills and certificates as well as wraparound services to ensure successful completion of programs and overall quality of life improvement for participating workers.
Below is more information about Bobbie in her own words:
Hello! My name is Bobbie, and I'm proud to say I am the new career pathways associate for the CWDC. Originally from Illinois, I visited Colorado once during my college career, and immediately felt as though I had found my place. After one visit, I transferred to Colorado State University (CSU) where I graduated with a BS in Industrial Organizational Psychology and a minor in Business Administration.
After my time at CSU, I worked as a caretaker while looking for an environment in which I felt I could grow my skills and continue to build off the knowledge I obtained. I was lucky enough to find that environment in the Boulder Chamber of Commerce, where I started as an office manager and was able to develop into the role of Workforce Vitality Specialist. I was able to grow my love and knowledge of local politics through all of the Chamber's advocacy efforts, and dive deeper into the world of workforce development.
In this new role with the CWDC, I am excited to assist individuals across the state in recognizing a career pathway that will be meaningful for them and helping them to understand that no matter what their current role is, they are learning vital skills that can be applied in a variety of industries and occupations.
Outside of work I can be found running around my local trail systems, hiking, timidly mountain biking, and exploring the many local breweries we are lucky to have in Colorado. Although I miss the fast-paced life of Chicago, and deep dish pizza, I do enjoy being able to casually climb mountains on the weekends!
Welcome to the CWDC, Bobbie!
