The Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce has a team of experienced, highly dedicated professionals that support an inclusive community for our members that connects, empowers, and advances women in business. We do this by being genuine connectors, building authentic relationships, demonstrating a service mindset, and passionately leading the way for business women and men in Colorado.
Simone D. Ross, Interim CEO
As a Colorado native who grew up in Denver’s Park Hill neighborhood, Simone has a strong sense of the importance of community, family, and building through investing in the success and dreams of one another. In an effort to catalyze change, elevate and add visibility to issues of workforce equity, and operationalize inclusivity in business, Simone leads with a vision of catalyzing human thriving through effective and integrative change management. Simone uses her 15+ years of corporate experience to crystalize the CWCC business operations strategy, and bring voice to the importance of creating equitable and sound enterprises.
Leah Caputo, Program Manager
This Iowan is our go-getter manager of all things relating to programs. She is your north star for learning about our programs, speaking opportunities, topics, and the mastermind of putting it all together behind the scenes to ensure your CWCC experience is sublime. When she isn’t working on creating opportunities to advance women in business, you can find her at the pool with a good book, attending any sporting events, or hitting the hiking trails or pavement for a run (think marathon, 10k, she does it and we are tired just thinking about it).
Jenn McIntire, Operations Coordinator
Jenn keeps the CWCC ship afloat and loves engaging with members; you might – and should – say she is the lifeblood of our community. As a consummate list-builder and a lifelong SF Giants fan, Jenn is currently working on seeing (and checking off) all 30 MLB stadiums, with only 5 to go! Her love of sports drove her to Florida State (for the football). After graduation, her passion for government and politics pushed her to a career in administrative service, first at the Florida state capitol and later here in Colorado. She also served on a Senate re-election campaign in D.C. She also serves on arts-related Boards. Fall is her favorite time of year in Colorado, hiking, and fishing in Steamboat Springs and watching the Florida State Seminoles.
Meaghan Carabello, Contract Marketing & Communications Support
Meaghan is a savvy, strategic, creative type with extensive experience with helping organizations start, revive, or continue excellent communications, marketing, PR, branding, and social media strategy. She is a community-minded individual who leverages partnerships through honest and creative campaigns and hopes to shepherd the CWCC through this transitional period. Plus, she truly enjoys working with the kick-ass women of the CWCC – both staff and members – and can’t wait to roll up her sleeves and make some magic happen!
