Yampatika appoints new officers to help lead nonprofit

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Yampatika has appointed four officers to govern the organization for the next two years. Holly Hampson, an operations manager with Mercer Health & Benefits, has moved from vice president into the role of president.

Rachel Masters, an insurance representative with State Farm Insurance, has been tapped as vice president, and Leslie Steen, a retired educator, will continue in the role of secretary. Elliott Ludy, a CPA with A. Scott Colby, PC, will continue to serve as treasurer.

Hampson replaces Shari Fryer, who has served as president of the Yampatika board since 2014.

“Shari has been an outstanding leader for the organization,” said Yampatika Executive Director Joe Haines in a news release. “Both the board and the organization have grown and improved from her leadership.”

The officers form the board’s executive committee.

“The first thing we look for in our board members is that they have passion for our mission of inspiring environmental stewardship through education,” Haines said. “Our board is really engaged, passionate and accountable. It certainly makes my job so much easier and more enjoyable to work with such a great group of people who are prepared to roll up their sleeves and get real work done.”

The Yampatika board also includes Carol Davidson, Greg Friedman, Natalie Sattler, Susan Stempel and Betsy Wilbanks. All board positions are volunteer roles.
