The Full Story
Owner / Rural Advocate
She believes that tourism can help rural areas build their economies with knowledge of all they have to offer. There are a lot of cool day trip destinations in rural areas. Many of these smaller cities & towns have unique festivals and events that people from the front range can easily access and enjoy.
Cathy was raised in Northeastern Colorado just like her grandparents and parents – this is her home. This is a forgotten part of the state with so much to offer. With Northeastern Colorado as her base she has expanded to cover all of rural Colorado and Wyoming and Nebraska.
Kortnie has been with us since nearly day one, when she perceived the great potential of Discover Rural and resided in Fort Morgan, Colorado. As a Brush native working, volunteering, and living in Fort Morgan, Kortnie responded to Cathy's post on Facebook. Now she is in Georgia by way of Cheyenne, Wyoming, and is still inputting all the community events onto the Discover website and keeping all of us on track. Her real job is in human resources, and when not wrangling for us, she wrangles three children, a sweet English Bulldog named Lucy, and a husband (now.......that's the REAL work!).
