Erin Opsahl is a busy wife and mother of two playful toddlers.Growing up in the California Bay Area, she is a true lover of the ocean, sunshine and flip flops. Marriage brought her out to Colorado nine years ago, and she has called Summit County home for the past six. She often tells people she didn’t own a real coat or shoes until moving here.

Being a new mom in a mountain area that felt isolated, Erin realized she needed to connect to other moms and the community. Out of this need, Erin found her passion. Combining her psychology degree from the University of Colorado at Denver with her love of connecting people and resources (and finding a bargain), she focuses on promoting networking, friendships, fun ideas and local resources to both strengthen and build personal relationships and families.

Erin spends as much time as she can being “Mommy” and participating in fun family events around Summit County — on a budget. Erin believes an informed mom is a better mom!

About The Author

Kimberly Nicoletti always knew she was meant to escape gray Chicago winters and spend her days skiing the Colorado Rockies. So, two months after she turned 18, she moved to Breckenridge to be a ski bum "for a season," assuring her parent's she'd return to Illinois to finish college. But, the ski bum life stuck. After three years of full-time skiing in Summit County, she decided to finish her degree at CU-Boulder in Creative Writing (granted, she took a semester off to ski). Once free of classes, she took yet another year off to ski in Summit (do you see a pattern here?). Then, she moved back to Boulder to earn her master's degree in Somatic Psychology/Dance Therapy. Upon graduation, she spent a winter teaching skiing at Mammoth Mountain. (Surely you see the pattern now.) In 2002, she moved back to Summit full time, to work at the Summit Daily as the arts and entertainment editor. She stayed with the company for 10 years, enjoying Summit's great events and later working as the managing editor of magazines covering the High Country. She still revolves her life around adventure and creativity, taking time to travel, ski, paddleboard, dance, ice skate, play with her dogs, learn new things and generally enjoy life. She's highly addicted to powder skiing and keeps her winter mornings commitment-free so she can indulge in "deep play" when Mother Nature cooperates. Off the mountain, she's a freelance writer and editor and teaches fitness and mind/body classes throughout Summit County.
