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.

She is currently seeking a Master of Public Administration from the University of Colorado at Denver.

Marisa moved to the Telluride region as an AmeriCorps VISTA working in community and economic development and has since worked in public health as a health equity coordinator for Tri-County Health Network and volunteered with the San Miguel Resource Center as a certified victims’ advocate. She received an accreditation from the U.S. Department of Justice to offer immigration legal services, served as a health coverage guide enrolling families into marketplace insurance plans, Medicaid and SNAP, and consulted with local advocacy group Collaborative Action for Immigrants since its inception.

Hilary Taylor

Hilary Taylor

Board President

Hilary is a long time mentor and board member of One to One Mentoring. It is an organization near and dear to her heart and her only regret is she didn’t get involved sooner. Hilary visited Telluride in 2008 and fell in love… from the friendly people, the breathtaking landscape, endless outdoor activities, to the 300 average days of sun, it was her dream to live here. She is grateful every day to call Telluride home! Originally from Durham, North Carolina, Hilary has her parents to thank for bringing her to Colorado to learn to ski at an early age.

She earned a bachelor of science degree from Vanderbilt University double majoring in Human & Organizational Development and Communications. Her background is in advertising and marketing, having worked in Chicago for 8 years before moving to Telluride. For the past 3 years, she has been working in real estate and got her brokers license in 2017 with Telluride Sotheby’s International Realty.
Giving back to the community and developing meaningful relationships is of utmost importance to Hilary. She love meeting new people, hearing their stories, and collaborating on what to experience in our charming and fun adult-playground. “That is what makes being a mentor so fun, my mentee and I get to go on adventures and bond!” She loves promoting the One to One events and recruiting new mentors. When not working and volunteering, she savors time with her husband Carson and two little boys.

Seth Berg

Seth Berg

Vice President of the Board

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.
Kip Smith

Kip Smith

Board Member

Kip hails from the charming town of Eugene, OR, where her journey in Nursing began. Her path led her to the breathtaking mountain haven of Telluride in 2000, where she initially delved into property management, working for the town’s once-largest company. Following that, she served as a Research Analyst for a pan-Asia private equity fund before transitioning to a thriving career in real estate.

In 2006, Kip embarked on her initial meaningful journey with the Telluride Association of Realtors, volunteering as Director. Over the years, her commitment to the community saw her rise to the position of Board President, and she actively contributed to various local and state committees. A true trailblazer, Kip initiated the local Affiliates committee and played a pivotal role as a founding member of the Colorado Association of Realtors’ Young Professional Network. Today she is focusing on local issues and creating a Disaster Awareness Committee with the County, Sheriff’s Department and local governments.

Beyond her professional endeavors, Kip is passionate about giving back. Currently, she serves as a dedicated One to One Board Member, Rico Planning and Zoning Commission and Girl’s U19 Lizard Head Hockey Coach. When not immersed in the world of real estate, you’ll find Kip embracing the great outdoors. In the summer, she’s cruising on her bike, and come winter, you’ll spot her gracefully gliding across the ice. Kip’s story is one of professional achievement, community leadership, and a love for the active, mountain lifestyle
