Karyn Butts

Accounting Specialist

Numbers may run through Karyn’s head, but optimism runs through her veins. From her perspective, life is good when you wake up, breathe, smile and start a new day. Pair that with the accounting skills she began developing just out of high school and you’ll understand why Karyn is such a valuable member of our team.

Entrusted with paying the Foundation’s bills, Karyn also administers grant payments and processes the Foundation’s payroll. She says it’s fulfilling to know that through her accounting abilities she too can help improve the health of Coloradans.

Karyn has been at the Foundation since 2016 and enjoys learning about the various aspects of people’s roles within their departments. It is eye-opening to witness so many people extremely passionate about what they do. It’s very uplifting — and for an optimist, that’s saying something.

Karyn is a native Coloradan, and her favorite tourist spot is Estes Park where she adores the quaint little shops. When the elk are out and roaming the town, there’s no better place.

On a lazy day indoors, Karyn could turn into a couch potato. (Shhh! Don’t tell anyone.) Munching on popcorn in a pair of sweats with “Survivor” on the TV is her delightful indulgence.
