Location: Centennial, Colorado
Joel and his wife Bambi reside in Centennial, Colorado, by necessity, but spend waking moments dreaming of or being in the Rocky Mountains. Joel graduated from the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) in 1983, and immediately dove back into the mountaineering life by joining the 1984 South Buttress Expedition on Denali in 1984. After meeting Bambi during the summer of 1986 while working as backpacking counselors at Cheley Colorado Camps (just outside of Estes Park – an awesome place!), Joel wrapped up at Texas Tech University (BBA), married the love of his life, and graduated from the University of Denver, Sturm College of Law. Joel is an avid fly fisher, skier and hiker (now “of counsel” in technical climbing) and a partner at the Denver law firm of Davis Graham & Stubbs LLP, where he assists clients in planning, creating and implementing strategies for their commercial real estate transactions. Joel and Bambi have two children, Jake (a senior at Montana State University) and Abby (just graduated from the University of Puget Sound). Joel has been a Conservancy board member since 2011, serving on both the audit and development committees.
