Alex is Mountain Family Center’s “Family Support Services Manager.” She was born and raised in Grand County. After graduating high school, she moved to Fort Collins to attend CSU and pursue a degree in Social Work as well as Human Development and Family Studies. After 10 years she decided it was time to move back home to be closer to family. After graduating from CSU, Alex worked at an affordable housing nonprofit in Fort Collins where she started as the receptionist and worked her way up to eventually fill the Director of Resident Services position. In that roll, she worked with families in a variety of capacities including housing stability, rent assistance, community engagement planning, and resource referral. She also helped with grant writing. Alex worked at Mountain Family Center (with her mother, Terry Sidell) while on summer breaks in college and was excited to be back in a more permanent role. She is passionate about MFC’s mission and feels there is something so rewarding about working with families in the same community where she was raised. In the summers Alex enjoys hiking, camping and fishing in our beautiful county. During the winter she enjoys being a bit of a hermit and staying home to play in the snow by her house or watch football and build puzzles with her family.
Aspen joined the MFC team in September of 2023 after completing her Master’s degree at CU Boulder in “Sustainable Food Systems”. Her undergrad and graduate studies focused on public health, human nutrition and sustainability, and prior to MFC Aspen had experience working with other food-focused non-profits. MFC is thrilled to have Aspen as part of our organization, where she works as the Food Pantry Operations Manager and Nutrition Specialist. Her role is to support the staff and volunteers who make our food security efforts a success and to coordinate with statewide hunger relief agencies to ensure we are equipped to meet the needs of our community.
In her free time, Aspen can be found cooking, baking, swing dancing, hiking and whitewater rafting. She also admits she is “a sucker for board games”!
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.
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 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.

I’m originally from Florida, got my undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia in Psychology, and moved to Colorado in 2015. I worked in a residential treatment facility for teenage girls and moms for 3 years, and went back to school to get my Masters in Social Work from the University of Denver at this time. My internships were in schools during my 2 year program, and I knew I wanted to stay in schools for my career. I got the job at East Grand in 2018, and have been here since!
On weekends and during the summer, I am outdoors as much as possible. I ski, go on walks with the dogs, hike and camp, and get on the river! I also work a lot at my second job, a little antique shop in Grand Lake called Humphrey’s, which is so fun!
I love being in the county, and am excited for the opportunity to help out in any way I can.
I have worked in collaboration with MFC for 5 years now, and I appreciate the organization’s mission and dedication to the families that they serve.
Working in a small school system has afforded me many opportunities to meet and collaborate with different people. I have gained a new insight into this community and the needs of the majority. Through my education, I have also gained skills in active listening, being non-judgmental, and meeting people where they are, and receiving feedback openly.
