Renee Horton, Office & Programs Manager
Start Date: 2018

Renee Horton joins LIFT-UP as the Office/Programs Manager. She brings over 20 years of experience in creating, organizing and implementing programs, policies and procedures with the last 16 years at the Department of Human Services.
"I loved being able to help others gain confidence and re-build their lives through a wide variety of programs and partnerships. Working with LIFT-UP is a perfect extension of my background that allows me to continue to help those in need while bringing structure and organization to a beloved and established organization that impacts our valley from Aspen to De Beque," Renee shared.
Having lived in the valley for most of the last 25 years, she spends time with her husband Travis, her two daughters and four grandchildren.

Angela Mills, Executive Director
Start Date: 2018

Angela Mills joins LIFT-UP after spending the last 18 months at Colorado Mountain News Media as Advertising Manager for the Post Independent. Although she has spent a lot of her career with newspapers, for Angela it is a return to the passion of non-profit work that sparked her interest to come to LIFT-UP. "My time as Membership, Volunteer and Programs Director for Girl Scouts of Montana and Wyoming was the most impactful of my career as I could see the changes in individuals and our community. I found that work so energizing and rewarding," she said.
"I see the LIFT-UP team as a perfect mix of talent and personality. It is the right time to take LIFT-UP to the next level, while making sure as we change to fit the needs of today, we are honoring our history of the past."
