Theresa Echols

Treasurer

Theresa is a Colorado native and has resided in Castle Rock with her husband Cliff since 1968. She retired from the Douglas County School District in 2010 after 21 years in the finance department.

Theresa enjoys Colorado living and spending time with her animals which include horses, cattle, cats, and dogs, all of which keep her busy. A wonderful day is a trail ride with friends seeing elk, deer, antelope, and coyotes in pastures close to home. Life is good on a horse. Her belief is that a horse has a calming, comforting effect that enriches the rider, care giver, and bystanders. Horses touch the heart and heal the soul.

Theresa believes volunteering brings a sense of happiness and is looking forward to serving as Treasurer.
