Director of Finance and Operations
Cynthia joined CCHI in January 2015 as the Director of Finance and Operations. In 2018 Cynthia directed the launch and operations of CCHI’s Consumer Assistance program, a long held goal of the organization. That program has helped over 1,700 Coloradans from across the state save more than $4.5 million. It is also a vital way that CCHI identifies issues and moves policy solutions forward while engaging consumers we’ve helped in our advocacy. She has worked in accounting and the non-profit sector in Colorado for the past 22 years. Prior to CCHI she was the Director of Operations for Anchor Center for Blind Children where she managed accounting, human resources and information technology. She also collaborated with Denver School of Nursing to launch a respite program, where Anchor Center parents could leave children with student nurses for four hours the first Friday night of each month. The program has grown in recent years and allows student nurses an education opportunity to work with children who have vision impairments and gives parents a much needed night out! Cynthia is a Certified Public Accountant, Professional of Human Resources and completed the Non-Profit Leadership Institute Program through Employers’ Council financed through Rose Community Foundation and The Daniels Fund. Outside of work, Cynthia enjoys reading and hiking, and spends many of her weekends in Winter Park, Colorado. She also enjoys biking, and can tackle even the steepest hills with her electric bike.
