Name of your Business?
Jewel Communications publisher of Living Well in Lowry
Where are you from originally and how did you land in Lowry?
I’m originally from Brighton, MI. After earning my Journalism/PR degree from Arizona State University, I followed by dream and moved to Denver in 1998. My husband and I moved to Lowry (all the way from Park Hill) the year after we got married (2005). Once we “landed” here, we knew this was where we wanted to raise our family and we’ve been here ever since!
What’s your favorite thing about Lowry?
We chose Lowry because we knew we did not want to go to the suburbs! Lowry has a small-town feel, yet we still have the conveniences of being in the City – from unique restaurants, open spaces, proximity to downtown, interstate access and, luckily, amazing neighbors!
Why do you enjoy the work that you do?
Being the third owner of Living Well in Lowry (this is my 10th year), I’ve made so many personal connections and friendships throughout the community that I don’t believe would have otherwise happened had I chosen another path after having kiddos. I’ve really been able to immerse myself in my community, not only for my business, but for my family as well.
What do you want the community to know about your business?
Living Well in Lowry is the longest living print publication in the neighborhood. It was founded back in 2002. We’re hand-delivered to 3,000 each month including homes and businesses within 80230. Something you may not know? All the stuffing and bagging is done by me. Occasionally, I’m able to “hire” my boys for $1/100.
When you are not hard at work, how do you unwind and enjoy your free time?
Thankfully, I’m able to work flexible hours so I can be available for shuttling kids. I carve out time for yoga each week and recently ran (again) the Screaming Downhill leg of the Colfax Marathon. When not doing any of that, soccer and skiing are on heavy rotation at our house throughout the year. Sans kids? My husband and I enjoy walking up to Hangar 2 for a drink (at least once a week) to catch up – maybe we’ll see you up there!
