Tera has been a Castle Pines resident for 19 years. She served as a passionate community advocate on the Castle Pines city council for 12 years, the last four as mayor. In those roles, she established fiscally responsible programs leaving City finances in the strongest position they have ever been.
As a member of CPNMD’s board, her top priority is to focus on the quality and sustainability of water, stormwater, and wastewater services for the benefit of CPNMD’s customers. In addition to ensuring the continuity of day-to-day operations for the health, safety, availability, and reliability of our drinking water, her emphasis includes safeguarding the long-term sustainability of our community’s water services by securing our renewable water needs.
Her experience with various large-scale projects taught her to focus on issues rationally and work collaboratively on results that benefit all parties involved.
Because Tera believes giving back to areas of need is her civic duty, she spends much of her downtime advocating for and participating in community-service programs. She spent years volunteering and serving on community boards, including the Douglas County Community Foundation and the Douglas County Library Foundation. She also serves as a long-term board member of Genny’s Hope Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit she helped launch.
Tera and her husband, Jon, enjoy the outdoors with their two Standard Poodles, Lincoln and Sherman. They enjoy running, hiking, biking, golfing, snowshoeing, and various sporting events.
