Spotlight on the Queen of Clean

Denise Nickerson joined us this year in a full time capacity at the ranch, running our housekeeping department. We’ve worked with Denise on a part time level for the past couple years, but this spring she decided to take the jump and move to the ranch.

Denise grew up along the coast of Rhode Island, spending many summers on the beach. Her riding arena were the beaches and the many trails that ran through the wooded country sides. She studied art and business in college and still continues to work mostly in pencil but also colored pencil and watercolor. Denise loves hiking, horseback riding, and is always looking for wildlife and wildflowers. Gardening is also another favorite pastime. She spent close to twenty years as a landscape gardener back East before moving back to Colorado. Back to Colorado? After high school, Denise moved out West, but then found herself back on the East Coast until recently. Her 23 year old son Clint also lives out here in the Steamboat Springs area, so she enjoys being close to him.

Knowing Denise’s reputation as a cleaning machine, and her enthusiasm for the ranch and what we’re doing for guests made her a perfect fit to come on board. We’re enjoying having her around and look forward to introducing those of you coming this summer to our newest member of the management team!
