Kylie Brown, Program coordinator  / Americorps VISTA Leader


Kylie is a Colorado Native and proud of it. She did take a brief sojourn to Tempe, AZ to get degrees from Arizona State University in Sustainability and Design Management. Kylie cemented her love for vibrant Colorado communities and their development when she interned at the Department of Local Affairs in the summer of 2015. She was hooked on providing assistance to communities all over the state so she came to work for DCI as their Communications VISTA. Now she's back! Kylie will be overseeing the AmeriCorps VISTA program, and is looking forward to leading a strong team of VISTAs building capacity and fighting poverty in our communities!

SAM, OFFICE DOG

Sam is Will Cundiff's dog who is in the office most days to keep away the mail men that try to deliver us much needed office supplies (but what is more needed is our sense of safety - thanks Sam) and is our in-house expert on financing mechanisms for downtown revitalization. Unfortunately, he only communicates his lack of kibble and does not speak English. When Sam isn't working (re: napping), he enjoys walks, hiking, and skiing with Will on the weekends.
