She has a Master’s in Degree in Higher Education and spent several years working as a college administrator and soccer coach before choosing to stay home full time to focus on raising the kids. She spends her free time volunteering, advocating for Caleb, and attending her kid’s various softball, hockey, basketball, and 4-h events.


Spencer and his wife Erin have lived in Fort Collins since 2005. They came so Spencer could attend graduate school at CSU and loved it so much they could never leave. They have four children: Milo, Isabel, Keeler, and Tatum. Spencer works as a child and family therapist and probably spends too much time rock climbing.

Viri Torres | Community Liaison

Hello! My name is Viri Torres. I'm a new member of the leadership committee for Northern Colorado Down Syndrome Association. I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I'm from the beautiful city of Chihuahua, Mexico, but I was raised in Colorado. I love being around people and making friends. I speak Spanish and will be your contact person for NCDSA if you have questions or need help. My sister, Emma Torres, is part of the lucky few and I'm beyond blessed to be her sister.
