She is thrilled to now call Colorado home and is eager to become an active member of this community.

Jodi Waters

Director of Development

I am a Colorado native!! As a child, I spent many happy days exploring with my brother at our family cabin in Florissant. I graduated from Colorado State University (Go Rams!) with a B.S. in Construction and Interior Design with an emphasis on Public Relations and held many positions in the corporate world in Business Development at a local hospital, Senior Pharmaceutical Sales Consultant and Real Estate Broker.

More About Jodi...

I vowed that once I left the corporate world, I would never go back! In order to fulfill 2 of my passions at once, I started a dog running business and spent several years running the trails with so many furry friends.

We moved to Woodland Park in 2000 because we wanted to raise our family in a small town. I am fortunate to have a wonderful, funny & supportive Husband and 2 amazing daughters that are the light of my life. We enjoy living in the mountains as it provides us the opportunity to trail run, camp, ski, mountain bike and just enjoy nature as a family. Most weekends, you will find me driving all over creation to watch my daughters play soccer! We have 2 rescue pups, Koa & Doolin and they bring so much joy to our family with their happy spirits and funny antics!

I have always gravitated towards animals as my passion lies in helping as many as possible. I would have a houseful if I could! I was so fortunate to come across an opportunity at TCRAS and I’m thankful every day to work with such amazing co-workers as the Volunteer, Grant and & Donor Coordinator and it is my DREAM JOB! I invite you to come in and tour TCRAS, meet our shelter guests and see what our Volunteer program has to offer. Our volunteers have a direct impact on each of our shelter guests regardless of the area they volunteer in and there’s no better feeling than that.

Amy Elmont

Public Relations Director

Amy has loved animals since she was very young – her first cat was there the day she came home from the hospital and she tried to make sure every day since has been filled with 4-legged, furry friends.  She lives with her daughters, who are both currently at the WP High School. They share their home with two cats and two dogs and various foster pups – who always keep everyone entertained.

More about Amy...

Amy started volunteering at TCRAS in early 2016 and then began working part-time as a kennel tech and then transitioned to Public Relations Director in May 2016. Amy is grateful to be part of the amazing team of people and the work that they do at TCRAS. “The shelter is such a positive and loving place. The people are wonderful and it is such a blessing to be able to spend time getting to know the animals and helping them find the right home to live out the rest of their days.”
