“Stay true to integrity. Work Hard. Understand how to read your financial statements. Delegate, but expect to wear a lot of hates. Plan for the future along the way, your legacy. Be fair to everyone, including yourself."

“My late husband, Ted La Montagne. He always was humble but looking for quiet ways to give back to Evergreen. One time that he reseeded someone’s entire lawn because they were given the wrong product. Another time, the lady at Starbucks asked him where he worked and his response was: I work at the Hardware Store, never letting on that he owned the store. I appreciated his incredible care for his employees, his generosity and his quiet contributions without drawing attention to himself. "

“Numerous mentors in Chicago in my first career and others in Colorado. Also, Steven Covey and his principles have helped me with a strong framework for leadership and successful life skills. I’ve read a lot of his writings and also taken a workshop. Recently Brene Brown’s Daring Greatly book. Fabulous! Teddy Roosevelt’s quote that she based her book on is one that I strongly believe in.

 “The person who has influenced me as a leader would be my father Jack Ellis. He worked tirelessly for 35 years as the Director of Development, then the Vice President of Ohio University. His kindness of heart, caring of others, gift of gab and a friend to many has influenced the way I run Inspired Fitness and live my life."

“Mereth Meade. She nominated us for our first Environmental Award. She was a leader and pioneer in our community on sustainability before we knew about sustainability. Mereth made me think of my service to community through various projects through the lens of a champion. She was the biggest advocate for Evergreen/Colorado. "

 “Being raised by a strong and full of life mother, I was encouraged to make a difference in whatever I did. Volunteer when and where you can and step-up to support growth and challenges. Be the agent of change. "
