With a background in sales, business and publishing, Mary Ellen was delighted to turn her talents to earning revenue for KRCC, the only radio station she listened to. She lives in north Colorado Springs with her husband, two horses, and their faithful HSPPR rescue dog, Bailey. She also devotes time to her other favorite nonprofit, the Trails and Open Space Coalition. For her, exercise means barn-work, riding, gardening, shoveling snow, and chasing her grandson (and skiing if she’s lucky). When stuck indoors she practices artistic pursuits while listening to KRCC.
