I moved to Rangely in the fall of 1990 to attend the CNCC Aviation program. I spent two years in the program, graduating in 1992 with an Associates of Applied Science in Aviation Technology and achieving my CFI and CFII. In the fall of the following year I took a position as an instructor in CNCC’s Aviation program. I then spent several years working for Ducey’s Electric as an apprentice electrician. In 1997 I went to work for Brenton Service Company where I earned my Journeyman Electrical License. A year later, seeking opportunities to provide a better lifestyle for my family, I transitioned into the natural gas field. Now 20 years later I still believe I made the right decision. I have also been on the Rangely Fire Department for 25 years and currently serve as Chief.
I have a son and a daughter. Sidney is 20 and will be graduating from CNCC with an associate degree and then will be attending a nursing program to become RN. Braxton is 11 and goes to school in Rangely. He enjoys riding his dirt bike, playing basketball, baseball and wake surfing at Kenney Reservoir.
During my first year of college I could not wait to return to the flat lands I came from and get out of these rolling hills and mountains. Like many college students I spent my time on campus and did not venture down to town much. The summer between my first and second years of college I chose to stay in Rangely and it was during this time that I realized what Rangely and the surrounding area was all about. I have now been in Rangely for 28 years and I would not change a thing. I am glad we have been able to raise our family here.
I think Rangely is great as a small community and the lifestyle benefits associated with our size are a primary reason why so many of us like living here. Rangely is also an industry based community which has cyclical ups and downs throughout the years. Because of this we need to focus on diversifying our community in order to help keep the economy going during industrial down times. There is no easy solution to this, given our location. But if we seek to capitalize on our unique BLM surroundings in order to promote Rangely we may find some success. Improving our community also means keeping the employees that work in our area living in our area. We must accept the challenges facing Rangely and strive to show the world that Rangely is truly Way Outside of Ordinary.
I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of Rangely. Some of the nicest, kindest, and supportive people live here. It really is a great place to live! I am lucky enough to be a life-long resident of Rangely.
Since receiving my B.B.A in 2009, I started as a gas plant operator, and now I work for a small oil and gas service company running down-hole service tools. The majority of this work takes place in the local Chevron field also known as the Rangely Weber Sand Unit. It's a very rewarding field to work in, because there is such a large variation in the age of the wells. The history of the oil and gas development in Rangely is very fascinating.
Oil and gas development has been very beneficial for Rangely, but I think in today’s world it is important to diversify. Tourism, recreation, and technology are all things we can take advantage of here. Rangely is a geological and geographical GOLD MINE!!! There is so much for people to see I want the community take advantage of this. The new fiber-optic coming into the community is just short of revolutionary.
I look forward to representing the great people of this community. It's an amazing opportunity for me to give back! I will be serving on the finance committee, community development committee, and the RDA/RDC committee. The easiest way to reach me is by email. Please feel free to contact me if needed.

I moved my family to Rangely in the Fall of 2014 after receiving an employment opportunity with Williams Northwestern Pipeline.
I work as an Operations Technician for Williams Northwestern Pipeline. I have held previous employment positions as a Project Manager, Public Relations Manager, and Account Manager.
I love the great outdoors; Rangely and surrounding areas provides so much to explore and enjoy. I also enjoy the unique and safe lifestyle that Rangely offers. I grew up in a small town, and can now offer my children a similar experience as they grow. There are also many opportunities for growth in Rangely, and I am excited to be a part of that.
Sustainability is my main focus for Rangely. With the economic downturn in the oil and gas field, I hope to see Rangely remain the unique and safe home town for all those that reside here. There are numerous possibilities for Rangely to be sustainable, and I have great hopes for those possibilities to become realities in the future.
I relocated to Rangely in 2017 while working for Rio Blanco County in Economic Development. In 2018 I accepted a position as the Executive Assistant to the President with Colorado Northwestern Community College. I graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelors in Business Administration. I have a wide array of experience with banking and finance, marketing, economic development, and public relations.
I grew up in a small rural town in Wyoming, and small towns hold a dear place in my heart; however, Rangely holds a really special place. Rangely offers a safe, welcoming, accepting, and supportive community atmosphere, which is why my husband and I look forward to raising our family here. We love Rangely and all the outdoor opportunities that it provides to locals and visitors alike. We spend our summers on Kenney Reservoir and our winters exploring the beautiful mountains around us snowmobiling.
Since Rangely is so reliant on the oil, gas and extraction industry I feel that one of the main focus for the town is to explore ways to diversity and strengthen our community, so that when the busts hit our community the impact isn’t as great as it has been in the past. I am currently heavily involved with the RDA/RDC and am looking forward to serving the community of Rangely on a larger scale.
