Ryan joined the Arc team in February 2014 as our very first Community Ambassador, a position solely dedicated to educating the community about the Arc throughout Weld and the Northeastern counties of Colorado.  Ryan works diligently to create new relationships in the community and educate them on events that the Arc is hosting, as well as the many unique ways the Arc can help get them involved in the community. He also assists with events through child care, event set-up/tear down, and of course through making sure guests are well cared for. More recently, Ryan has polished his office skills by answering phones, returning e-mails, and helping to prepare for our many weekend and evening events. Ryan is an independent entrepreneur, owning his own business call Plants Alive, where he cares for plants in people‚Äôs homes as well as rehabilitating plants who may have an owner with a less than a green thumb.
