Our Executive Director

Greetings!  My name is Traci Gurley-Tomashosky and I am acting as interim Executive Director for United Way Battlement to the Bells.  I have served on the board of directors for UWBB for the past 3 years and am thrilled to be taking the reins of an organization with so much potential!  Previously I have worked as a Early Childhood Special Educator and Preschool Director for Roaring Fork School District and as a Speech-Language Pathology Assistant for Mountain BOCES.  Recently I became a mother and made the decision to leave teaching to focus on my family and to pursue new professional opportunities. Fortunately, the absolutely exciting opportunity to lead United Way Battlement to the Bells presented itself and I am eager to help guide United Way Battlement to the Bells into the new year!
In this next year we will bring Americorps VISTA volunteers to the Roaring Fork Valley to support capacity building efforts of 14 participating local non-profits.  For me, this is the single most exciting thing happening within the non-profit world in the Roaring Fork Valley and I am proud to be a part of this project and United Way Battlement to the Bells!   It is my hope and vision to create a lasting relationship with Americorps VISTA and United Way Battlement to the Bells to further support our partner non-profits valley wide.  Here’s to an exciting 2018!
