NANCY FARMER

Office Manager

Nancy’s favorite things about working at Cal-Wood are that she can always get up from her computer to  step out into nature and look up at the clouds. The walk from the parking lot surrounded by mountain meadows,  peaks, and wildlife is the best part of her daily commute. Also, she loves working with the staff at Cal-Wood and how they carry out our mission of connecting kids and families to the Colorado mountains. Also, the food, and Hercules, the office cat!
