One to One MENTORING BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Tara has been with One to One Mentoring since July 2013. She was hired due to her strong background in business and employee relations garnered from 12 years as an operations director with the Telluride Ski & Golf Company. Since joining One to One Mentoring, she has doubled the organization’s overall income and increased the profit of the organization’s three largest fundraising events by 30%. Tara and her family moved to Telluride in 2000 from South Florida and have enjoyed everything that Telluride has to offer.
Kathleen was hired in November 2012 due to her strong ties with the organization from her employment as the English Language Specialist in the Telluride School District. Employed by the district from 1999-2008, she was instrumental in the creation of the district’s English Language Learner program with associated development in translation/interpretation services, teacher training in instructional methods, special education/ELL policy and community collaborations.
Case Manager, One to One Mentoring Norwood
Dan has been involved with One to One for close to 20 years, first serving as a mentor to a local boy and most recently serving on the board of directors. Dan is still friends with his former mentee who is now 28 years old, is gainfully employed, drug free and barely drinks. As Dan says, “short and simple, mentoring works and often times the adult benefits as much as the child.”
I mentored a young boy when his father died of cancer in 2000. He was in 3rd grade and needed someone to ski with on weekends and play board games after school. As he grew up independent and successful, I transitioned to board work for the organization. Friendships between adults and children provide important stability for families, schools and communities.

“As a Board of Directors member, being able to help foster One to One’s Mission of empowering youth in the county to reach their full potential is truly a gift.”
Taylor believes in the importance of giving back to the community and developing meaningful relationships. “That is what makes being a mentor so fun, my mentee and I get to go on adventures and bond,” add Taylor. “I love One to One and recruiting new mentors.” When not working and volunteering, she savors time with her husband Carson and two little boys.
Daniel Zemke was born in Detroit, Michigan but moved a lot as a child. He went to high school in Boulder, Colorado but believes he “grew up” in San Francisco, California where he went to college. Moving from place to place as a kid, he understands the importance of having a good role model during the adolescent years. He is a licensed attorney that owns his own law practice in Telluride and has lived here with his wife and children since 2008. Daniel serves on other boards in Telluride but loves One to One because of the positive impact it makes on kids in our region.
