He has been actively involved in the community since 2003 as a Planning and Zoning Commissioner with multiple terms as chairman.

Active in her community, she served as a volunteer Planning and Zoning commissioner for 4 1/2 years and volunteer Mediator with the Garfield County 9th Judicial District. Investing time and energy into her community has always been a priority. She has been a Realtor in the community since 2005, with a brief hiatus when they lived in Bozeman, Montana. Ingrid has a B.A. in Sociology, an M.S. in Public Relations, a Mediation Certificate and ran a bakery in downtown Glenwood.  

    Ingrid and her husband, Jeremy, feel fortunate to be raising two teenagers, planting gardens and finding adventures in the surrounding mountains with their dog. Glenwood Springs is a great place to call home.
