Dustin is acutely aware of the impact health has on every component of a person’s life. As a program officer at the Foundation, he is driven to address the health inequities that exist in Colorado for both individuals and families across the state.
Dustin has worked at the Foundation since 2015. He worked as a public policy officer from 2015-2017 and joined our Philanthropy team in 2018. He has more than ten years of experience in the health arena, with past positions at the Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, Senator Michael Bennett’s Denver office and Kansas Health Policy Authority. As a program officer, Dustin’s work is focused on access to care, ensuring that all Coloradans have health in reach. He understands that each community has its own strengths and challenges and is excited to work with communities across Colorado to learn about the former and help address the latter.
Dustin tends to his own well-being by gardening, cooking, playing the banjo and enjoying the company of his wife, Amy. Their weekends are often jam-packed with skiing, hiking, camping, trail running and the occasional bicycling jaunt to one of Denver’s many microbreweries. He also considers himself somewhat of a pet wrangler, with two dogs, a cat and three chickens.
