Keira Clark
Community Impact & Marketing Manager

Keira has been a Colorado resident for 12 years, having relocated to Grand Junction from New Castle, CO in April of 2021. While living in the Roaring Fork Valley she built a career in the nonprofit sector at a private animal shelter, focusing on community program development and event and volunteer management. While she will always have a passion for our four-legged companions, she was very excited to join the team at UWMC, an organization with a mission near and dear to her heart.

Brenda Baecker
Resource Development Manager

Brenda grew up on the Western Slope and had dedicated the majority of her life to fundraising, non-profit work and inspiring teens through coaching and education.  She spent the last 9 years in marketing here in Mesa County, and now has returned to her first passion; helping others.  “A little encouragement can go a long way. I am so honored to be a part of United Way Mesa County where my gifts and talents will help inspire and encourage so many people in so many diverse ways.”   When not working, she enjoys all the western slope has to offer; hiking, biking, gym time, SUP, a swim, (she claims to be a fresh water Mermaid).  But….her greatest passion is dancing.  When she can’t find a partner, she will break out the line dances.  If you would like to join her, she is happy to teach you a line dance or two.  Or partner with you for a two-step, waltz, and her favorite, West Coast Swing.
