Shirley Proppe

Contract Marketing Coordinator


shirley@aincolorado.org


After my 26-year corporate career came to an unexpected end in 2008, I decided to make the next chapter of my life about doing something I could be passionate about.  As the Program Coordinator for a local nonprofit, I worked for nine years helping older adults who were blind or visually impaired achieve more independence and a greater quality of life.  When that nonprofit closed due to a lack of funding, it was a natural transition for me to join the team at AINC.  I had been referring my clients to this important resource for many years.  I am so thankful to be working with such a wonderful and valuable organization.

Just after his second birthday, Beethoven met Penn Street, and they began their journey as a team. Beethoven loves to travel, swim in waterfalls, hike tall mountains, and explore cities around the world with Penn. His impressive career has landed him star spotlights in newspapers, magazines, and newscasts. His new favorite pastime is curling up under Penn’s desk at the AINC office
