Rob Greenlee, Executive Director

Rob is the youngest member of the Greenlee clan and assumed the role of Executive Director in September, 2004 after serving seven years as a foundation trustee. Rob began his professional career in restaurant management, performing all aspects of the business from waiting tables and bartending to management. After seven years and four cities, he decided to leave restaurant management for a tamer career--emergency medical services. Rob was a Paramedic with a local ambulance company based in Boulder until 2004 when he took over the director's role for the foundation full time. Rob is an accomplished nature photographer and has been able to enjoy some eco-traveling to Canada, Mexico and Antarctica. He also enjoys golf and fly fishing when time allows. Rob and his lovely wife Carey live in Boulder County.
