About our 2023 Board
Sue del Toro - (President) - Sue and her husband Paul moved from New York to Parker, Colorado in 1993; relocating to Florissant in 2020 after passing through the area for many years to head to their property in Hartsel and falling in love with the area. You often can see her either walking her dog or riding her bike around the community. Sue holds experience in sales, marketing, administration, software development, office management, customer service, payroll and accounts payable.

Currently she is a volunteer on the NoFloCo Fire Mitigation Posse' as well as a volunteer for the Local Emergency Response Planning Committee.
