Grace Lodge

Director of Communications and Development

Grace enjoys work that engages a cross section of the community to generate ideas and solutions that make places more equitable and livable for all. She joined Community Builders after working as the Communications Specialist at the City of Aspen. In that position she led community engagement processes for a wide range of projects including an energy benchmarking ordinance in commercial buildings, Climate Action Plan implementation, neighborhood street redesign, and a regional mobility project. Prior, she was the Community Engagement Manager at a nonprofit called Good Work Institute where she helped develop a network of over 150 local entrepreneurs, public servants, artists, nonprofit leaders and activists working to build a more just and regenerative region in the Hudson Valley of New York. 

At Community Builders, Grace works with the team to share the work we do across the American West with all of our varied audiences and partners. Grace lives in Carbondale and loves taking road trips to the incredible communities around her in Colorado and beyond.
