Executive Director Mrs. Cindy Sims
Term Start February 2018
Cindy's Experience: Cindy attended Colorado Christian University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration. Before coming to Center of Hope in 2018, Cindy worked in the healthcare field as a neurophysiologist for 20 years. She has also owned two local businesses and gave her time volunteering for several committees in the area. A native Columbian, Cindy has always had a passion for working in the community. Inspired by volunteering with different organizations, Cindy quickly developed a deep passion for community service. She comes to the Center after 20 years in the medical field. She felt the need to reconnect to the community in service and followed the call to advocate against domestic violence and abuse, rape and sexual violence, stalking and sex trafficking.
