Meet our Parks Director, Brian. Brian loves the great outdoors and that his job allows him that enjoyment on a daily basis. Brian came to us with eight years of experience as a Parks and Recreation Director – a total of 16 years in the field. One of the craziest things to happen to Brian was when he was shot by a gun at age 12. He thought the sky was falling, or a tree branch. To this day, he has an array of bb’s in various parts of his body – including a bb in his cheek, recently found by a dental x-ray. Something funny about Brian is that he hates snakes – don’t tell him we told you.
Executive Director Clint Dudley is a parks and recreation professional who has been helping build happy, healthy communities through parks, programs, and partnerships for over 19 years. Clint is a lucky husband and proud father of six. He’s a bicycle junkie, and baseball fanatic. Clint is passionate about coaching young people and growing their love for sports and life long active lifestyles.
Meet our Programs Manager, Lindsay. A University of Northern Colorado alumni, Lindsay studied Dietetics, Sport & Exercise Science, and Recreation. People are often surprised to find out that Lindsay is a thrill seeker and has enjoyed a range of activities from skydiving to swimming with sharks. Her current hobbies include photography, fitness, and spending time with her husband, their amazing boy Hendrix, and their 2 dogs Turbo and Diesel. Something funny about Lindsay is that she has an affinity for things that are shiny, from sequins to rhinestones (she may or may not own a bedazzler).
Meet our Recreation Director, Jeff. Jeff is a University of Wyoming alumni and a former Engineer. In earlier years, Jeff raced motocross where he finished third in the state.

Yep, it required stitches.
Meet our Operations Manager, Shae. With a Bachelor of Accounting degree, Shae graduated college first generation. Shae’s hobbies include playing with her puppy, hanging with friends and family, and playing sports. People are often surprised to find out that Shae had 67 stitches from a 4-wheeling accident. Something funny about Shae is that in middle school she ran a golf cart into a big white building. Fortunately, no one was injured, folks.
Meet our Facility Coordinator, Crystal. Crystal grew up in Milliken and graduated from Rosevelt High School. She graduated college with a degree in Business Management and Marketing.

Meet our Sports Manager, Kathlene. An RHS graduate, Kathlene has worked with TRPR since 2006.

People are often surprised to find out that Kathlene got into an accident with a train and lives to tell the story. Kathlene’s current hobbies include scrapbooking, photography and snowboarding. Something funny about Kathlene is that she catches herself watching “Jake and the Neverland Pirates” and “Doc McStuffins” – even when her kids are not around.
