Mindy became active in state level politics shortly after the 2016 election, following a lifelong career in physical therapy.

Prior to holding this position, she served as Senator Fenberg’s aide. In her spare time, Mindy loves to be outside enjoying the beauty of Colorado with her husband and teenage daughters, as well as her three dogs and the revolving door of foster pups that temporarily reside in her home.
