Emily SymolonFamily Services Coordinator
Darla was born in Aguascalientes, Mexico. She moved to the states with her family in 2004, and has resided in Colorado since then. After living in Summit County, she moved to Kremmling in 2017 in order to experience a smaller community and the close-knit culture that comes with living in a small town. She loves cooking, music, horseback riding, and biking with her family! She has also always enjoyed working with children, ever since her first job at the age of 15 where she watched kids while their parents participated in English language classes. Darla joined Mountain Family Center in 2018 as the CATCH Coordinator in Kremmling. CATCH is an after-school physical activity and nutrition education program for elementary-aged children (grades K–5), and Darla loved working with the 60+ kids who participated in the program! She has also worked in the food pantry and thrift store, and acts as the Spanish language interpreter for clients who visit the Kremmling and Granby locations.
Darla has three children: Jason, Genesis, and Abraham, and one dog, Coco. Darla loves to help every single customer, no matter what their language is, or why they are coming for assistance. She helps regular clients feel at home, and welcomes new clients who want to learn more about what MFC offers. She currently works at the Kremmling Food Pantry on Tuesday and Thursday. She is excited to be part of an organization that helps families grow together.
Julie joined our team as a Thrift Store Sales Associate in 2019. Retail was a new experience for her after working mostly in office settings before coming to MFC. She loves the interaction with people, and the fact that all of the team’s efforts go towards helping the community.
Julie grew up in Wisconsin and came to Colorado in 1979. She lived in Glenwood Springs and spent some time along the Front Range before moving to Grand County in 2002. In her free time, Julie enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, crafting, kayaking and hanging out with her dog Ruby!
Ricardo joined the MFC team in 2021 as a Food Pantry Associate. He enjoys welcoming clients, receiving the food pantry donations and helping to make sure food does not go to waste. Ricardo moved to Colorado from Arkansas, drawn here by the beautiful mountains. He has a background in community wellness and volunteerism and enjoys using his bilingual (Spanish and English) skills to help an even wider variety of people. In his free time, Ricardo likes to watch and participate in sports!
Rosa joined MFC as a Food Pantry Associate in 2021. Previously, Rosa lived in Mexico and worked as an administrative assistant and a volunteer in a church organization. Rosa moved to Grand County in 2017 and feels it is the perfect place to raise her son. Her favorite parts about working at Mountain Family Center are helping to improve the lives of community members and learning new things. In her free time, Rosa enjoys hiking, dancing and singing!
Liliana started with Mountain Family Center as a Food Pantry Associate in 2021. She enjoys meeting clients who visit MFC and helping them get connected with the resources they need. She also enjoys maintaining and organizing the food pantry to help everything run smoothly. In her free time, Liliana likes to cook, read, do jigsaw puzzles and play with her son!
Betsy was born in Heber Springs, Arkansas, but is a proud Grand County local. She moved to Grand in 1984 to work as a day camp counselor at the Snow Mountain Ranch YMCA. She met her husband Reid in Colorado. They moved to Arkansas together, but the mountains called them back, and they eventually returned to Grand in 1995. They have one daughter together named Elisa, and one adventurous cat named Ron.
Betsy majored in social work, with psychology and personal relations training. She has experience in both early childhood education and retail. She grew up working in her family’s jewelry store, and worked for nearly 10 years at the Viking Lodge & Ski Shop in Winter Park.
Betsy also worked at Eternal Hills Preschool in Tabernash from 2004 until 2021. She loved working with children as a preschool teacher and helping develop young minds through play-based learning. When Betsy left Eternal Hills, she applied to work at Mountain Family Center as a thrift store sales associate. Her favorite part about working in the thrift store is helping customers find what they need. She decided to apply to MFC because she respects what they stand for and what they offer to the community. She enjoys being involved with an organization that makes a difference in people’s lives.
Emily works in the Family Development department alongside Linda, to help families in the community thrive. Emily grew up in upstate New York. After leaving NY in 2013, Emily decided to live the laid-back beach lifestyle in Virginia and North Carolina. Then she moved to Colorado in 2015 to enjoy the Rocky Mountain lifestyle. In 2019, she started working as a teacher at Little Sprouts, an early childhood learning center in Granby. Working at Little Sprouts started her journey and interest in working with families and children in Grand County.
In her free time, Emily loves staying active and exploring the outdoors. She enjoys mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding, cross-country skiing, and general adventuring with her partner and their three kids. She also enjoys creating art, capturing Rocky Mountain beauty, and reading in her downtime. She feels lucky to serve this inspiring community with such an amazing team at the Mountain Family Center!
