Althea grew up in the Boulder area and after being away for eight years is excited to be back home in the Rocky Mountains. Originally hired on as a program assistant for TEENS, Inc., she is now the Teen Center Director and Restorative Practices Coordinator. Althea received her BA in Interdisciplinary Arts & Letters from Prescott College, and while in school she became certified as a Wilderness First Responder and an Emergency Medical Technician. Althea is currently pursuing her MA in Contemplative Education at Naropa University. She strongly believes that cultivating healthy relationships between teens and adults can be transformative not only for kids, but for the entire community. In her free time she enjoys reading, playing in the mountains, and learning about butterflies.
