Our current Ambassador Team includes:
Julie Dikken is the publishing Mom of Evergreen, Bailey, and Conifer Macaroni Kid, the invaluable free community resource for families in our area. Julie grew up in Evergreen, and along with her husband is raising her kids in the Bailey area as well as running her successful website and weekly newsletter to help families make the most out of the beautiful community we live and play in. Julie joined the Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce in 2014 and has been an active member ever since. She enjoys volunteering as an ambassador, sitting on various committees and connecting with other chamber members at events and meetings.
Originally from Cincinnati, Jessica Gentry has lived in Colorado for six years; she found her heart in Conifer. Jessica enjoys the outdoors: hiking, sand volleyball, and playing with her dog Aspen! With over 16 years of experience in the service industry, she found her calling in Real Estate so she could continue to help people when they need it, and is currently part of Keller Williams Foothills Realty. An ambassador and Chamber member allows her to meet new people, help others and give back to her community. Like the small town she grew up in, in Conifer, Jessica has that strong desire to connect with her fellow neighbors and friends to help grow an active and strong community. You might find Jessica working a few nights at Brooks Place Tavern or out on the hiking trails; either way, feel free to say Hi!
Chrisy Boldra, native to Arizona, and her husband Matt went looking for a better place to raise their family and in 2007 moved to Conifer. A Registered Dental Hygienist for 17 years, Chrisy saw the lack of care in the standard dental office. Her passion for taking care of people led her to open Healthy Smiles Hygiene. Patient comfort is of the utmost importance to Chrisy. It is the little details that matter in making patients comfortable, whether it is using warm water, having a blanket for patients to wrap up in, or the use of essential oils. Chrisy joined the Chamber in 2015 before she opened her dental hygiene practice to get to know the Conifer community better. The closeness of its members was one reason Chrisy became a chamber ambassador; it is where she can help others get to know the community. Chrisy is proud to call Conifer her home and raise her two children here.
Lauren Drabble came to the Conifer area in 2011 and joined the chamber in 2015. At her first breakfast meeting she luckily sat with the brand new Melanie Swearengin and the rest is history. Lauren became an Ambassador after joining the Christmas Parade Committee and subsequently dragging her husband to be on the committee too. Finding that just general membership through Intermountain Humane Society wasn't enough for her the event committee was the gateway drug that led to Ambassadorship.
Lauren tells everyone that being in the chamber has been the best thing for her personally and for IMHS. "I get to know everyone and do all the fun stuff by being an Ambassador."
Amie Sampson -A Colorado native, Amie was born in Denver and grew up in Pueblo. Since she was a child, she always wanted to live in a mountain community in Colorado, and in 2011 she began living her dream. Amie is a mother of eight wonderful children and a grandmother of one beautiful granddaughter. She was introduced to the Conifer Chamber in 2015 and immediately felt welcomed by the organization and its members. She is happy to be involved with the Chamber and enjoys attending the events with family. Amie currently works for City Wide Bank.
