Behind the NDCC is the secret glue that keeps it all together. That’s Michele Foust, our Executive Assistant.
Michele laid roots in Denver 22 years ago after growing up in San Diego. She now lives in Congress Park with her husband and has two kids in college.
Michele received a Bachelor’s degree from The University of California, San Diego and a Masters in Education from the University of Pittsburgh.
In her off time, Michele enjoys volunteering with Denver Public Schools and for her neighborhood association. Like most of us, she has a secret hobby: Netflix binging.
We took some time out of Michele's busy schedule to learn a bit more about her.
