Time is a precious commodity, and the places, people, and causes we choose to share our time with need to be worth our energy. No one knows this better than Ginger Robitaille. Throughout her life, she has consistently chosen to spend her time with seniors. As a Colorado native, there are many assisted living communities that she has volunteered at in Berthoud and Longmont. Starting at 12 years old, she would visit and often perform for the communities. This love, combined with a chance collaboration, connected her with Cultivate, and she saw it as a completely worthwhile venture. Since starting as a volunteer in 2020, she has since joined the Board and is now serving in her second year as Board Chair.
With the time that Ginger does not devote to us, she spends time with her family. Many of her family members are four-legged friends, and she has said that her home has been referred to as the “Longmont Home for Dogs.” Many of her furry family members are seniors themselves and require extra attention and love.
Ginger says that one big thing that brings her family together is sports and competition. She loves the opportunity to compete in person or in fantasy sports, and her newest canine companion is even named after a famous hockey player! She loves the chance to go outside, and she and her husband are often hiking and camping.
We are excited to see what this next year brings for the Board and Cultivate under her guidance. With her humor and focus, we are in good hands as time moves forward.
