We welcome our new team member!

Cindy Petersen - I am excited to join the CDE family!  I join you after 14 years in Lewis-Palmer District 38, where I spent the last four years in the ESSU Department .  I will be celebrating my 30th wedding anniversary next week!  I have two amazing children, a daughter who will be celebrating 4 years of marriage to an incredible young man this fall and a son who is with the Arapahoe Sheriff’s Department.  When I have spare time I enjoy cooking, quilting, painting, gardening and spending quality time with family and friends.
