There is a community of Women empowering Women in Colorado that has grabbed our attention – Women of Colorado. September will mark three years since Michelle J. Abrams, the groups’ founder, kicked off a website and social media platform uniting women of all interests, abilities & backgrounds in Colorado (and beyond).
Originally from Chicago, founder Michelle had a passion for Colorado’s wilderness and outdoors. Michelle is an E-RYT 200 Professional Yoga Instructor, Internationally published fashion model, musician and loves living an active lifestyle in each season. She is also the County Executive Director for the USDA Farm Service Agency in La Plata and Archuleta County Colorado. She once found it difficult to cultivate relationships with other women. It was when she moved to Colorado that she experienced encouragement and a judgment-free attitude of women during her outings in and around the state. It was this attitude of acceptance that inspired her to unite others with the Women of Colorado platform.
Today @womenofcolorado #womenofcolorado has a bevy of events, clinics, and outings for women to experience and learn together. From Meet & Greets like Painting, Metal Smithing, or Ax Throwing to Adventure events like Backpacking and Rafting, there is a wide variety of experiences to share. Women of Colorado also provides all-inclusive weekend experiences with invigorating athletic & artistic activities at their retreats. Women of Colorado offers something for every woman to learn and connect.
Women of Colorado has an active Ambassador program with a wide array of talented, empowered & connected women who unite others at the group’s events. Each ambassador develops their own vision, with their talents and interests to cultivate new experiences within the program.
What started as a little group has grown in numbers and participation in every region of Colorado. Michelle founded Women of Colorado because of her strong belief that women should use their skills and stoke to spread knowledge among the female communities of outdoorswomen, athletes, and artists. Michelle works to share her vision of women’s empowerment with all that she comes into contact with.
Women of Colorado provides a community of people brought together by their kindness, talents, and their drive to improve their environment and the lives of others. Be sure to check the groups’ website, Instagram and Facebook page to join and participate.
