If you interact with the organization in any way, chances are you’ll speak with Eileen. Office management, social media, membership, communications and more are her domain. Her favorite phrase is “What if…?” You can often find her hiking or biking the Greenway, Section 16 or Red Rock Canyon Open Space, sometimes accompanied by her husband and her canine companion, Emma the wonder corgi. A former resident of Buenos Aires, Argentina, Eileen is bilingual in Spanish and English.
