Whoops! We realized it has been quite some time since we introduced you to our new staff members. Here’s a “catch up” version of those announcements, which we intend to send to you quarterly from here on out.
Rocio Burgos, Administrative Assistant
After volunteering at the Women’s Emergency Shelter with Volunteers of America, Rocio decided to pursue full -ime nonprofit work and is thankful to be at Project Angel Heart. She was born in Santiago, Chile, but loves calling Denver her home-away-from-home.
Sally Davis, Colorado Springs Distribution Assistant
Previously a volunteer delivery driver, Sally brings broad experience in logistics, nonprofit operations, special events and campaign coordination to her position. She has worked with many Colorado Springs nonprofits.
Angie Acevedo, Client Services Assistant
Angie is fluent in Spanish and is the point of contact for our Spanish-speaking clients. She is from Los Angeles, California, but stays in Denver because she “fell in love with Colorado’s crazy weather” and wants to raise her three children here.

A former student of Chef Jon’s (from his days as an instructor at Metro State University of Denver), Amber has a bachelor’s degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics from MSUD. She says that she has been eager to put her talents to work on a larger scale, where she hopes “to positively impact clients and volunteers alike; doling out free hugs, making scrumptious and nutrient-dense cuisine, singing, laughing, dancing, and skipping all the while.”
Jennifer Lackey, Vice President of Development
At Project Angel Heart, Jennifer has found the perfect intersection between her passion for food and wellness and her extensive development background. Her previous experience includes thirteen years in healthcare fundraising at Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation and National Jewish Health, in addition to four years at Dumb Friends League.
