Pathways Welcomes New Volunteer Services Coordinator for Weld County
NORTHERN COLORADO, Colo. (June 26, 2018) – Pathways, a northern Colorado nonprofit that provides expert and compassionate hospice care, palliative care and grief and loss support, is pleased to welcome Elise Carver as the new Volunteer Services Coordinator for Weld County. Carver will manage all volunteer trainings and activities for Pathways’ Greeley office to enhance the level of care provided and build stronger connections among the Weld County community.
“Elise brings more than 20 years of managerial, training and customer service experience to the position, all of which will be a tremendous asset as she fosters volunteer engagement in Weld County,” said Nate Lamkin, president of Pathways. “We are incredibly fortunate to add her to our growing Greeley staff.”
Carver has spent the majority of her career in the airline industry, developing a broad skillset that will serve her well as she recruits, trains and supports volunteers for Pathways. As a University of Northern Colorado graduate with her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science and minor in Spanish, she has ample knowledge of the Weld County region. In her spare time, Elise has been an active volunteer for multiple nonprofit organizations, including Volunteers of America, Food Bank of the Rockies, Colorado Community Church and Philo.
Carver’s choice to join Pathways was rooted in her personal ties to the industry. Her mother was a hospice nurse for several years, and her close friend works in the bereavement counseling sector. These connections have led her to always have a special place in her heart for hospice.
“This opportunity seemed like a wonderful fit as I contemplated moving into a more meaningful occupation during this chapter of my life,” said Carver. “I feel privileged to be here!”
Pathways has been serving Weld County with expert hospice and palliative care for many years and in 2017 opened a physical location in Greeley. Since then, Pathways has steadily expanded its community presence, staff and scope of services in Weld County. The addition of a volunteer coordinator to the staff was a natural progression, reflective of Pathways’ expansion in the area.
Pathways looks forward to offering volunteer trainings in coming months at its Greeley location, 2525 W. 16th Street. Please keep checking pathways-care.org or facebook.com/pathways.hospice for further information.
Established in 1978, Pathways is a nonprofit agency providing exceptional hospice care in the last months of life, complete palliative care for those with long-term serious illness and community-wide grief support for residents of Larimer and Weld counties in northern Colorado.
