Growth Report | New Additions to the Brent’s Place Team
Updated: Jul 20
Over the past few months, the Brent’s Place staff has experienced a burst of growth. We are excited to welcome three new staff members to our Marketing and Community Outreach and Family Support teams.
As our new Marketing and Community Outreach Coordinator, Chelsey Emmelhainz will contribute to the storytelling culture of Brent’s Place, capturing the stories of our families and community partners and sharing them through marketing channels.
Chelsey joins us from Private Prep, a K-12 test prep and tutoring company, where she worked in content marketing and branding. A storyteller by nature, Chelsey spent the decade before as a book editor in New York City.
“I’m passionate about stories that create an impact, that stay with you,” Chelsey said. “I’m looking forward to spreading the word about Brent’s Place and the families we serve with the greater community.”
Outside of work, Chelsey enjoys gardening and spending time with her husband, Matt, and cat, Loki.
Caitlin McPherson is a welcome new addition to our Family Support team. In her new role as a Family Support Coordinator, Caitlin will be finding creative, safe ways for families to engage. While Caitlin is a new staff member, she has been a loyal and valued friend of Brent’s Place for over a decade.
“My time as a volunteer for Brent’s Place ignited my passion for our mission and the families we serve,” Caitlin said. “I couldn’t be luckier to be where I am today.”
Caitlin is a recent graduate of the University of Colorado Boulder where she studied Psychology and Education. Previously, Caitlin worked as a Youth Advisor for Boulder County Public Health, as well as a Restorative Justice Facilitator.
In her free time, Caitlin enjoys dabbling in art, spending time with her dog Scout, and connecting with friends.
The Family Support team also welcomed Sarah Coleman as a Family Support Coordinator. Sarah discovered her passion for nonprofits through her work with Girl Scouts of Colorado, Children's Hospital Colorado Foundation, and Shands Children's Hospital. She's eager to engage the families here at Brent's Place through the design of creative and enriching programming.
“I am so inspired by the mission of Brent’s Place and am so excited to be a part of the team that goes above and beyond for the families served here!” Sarah said.
Outside of Brent’s Place, Sarah enjoys cooking and spending time in the mountains with her family and three golden retrievers.
Please join us in extending a warm welcome to Chelsey, Caitlin, and Sarah! We are so happy they have chosen to share their talents with Brent's Place.
