Hi! I’m Tina! I recently moved to Fort Collins from Bradenton, Florida where I was born and raised. Growing up within minutes from the beach was amazing! I enjoyed being out on the boat, fishing, relaxing on the beach, or anything that has to do with the ocean.
As I got older, I realized that there is more to life than being stationary. I’m looking forward to this new journey in life and being able to actually experience seasons and new hobbies. Since moving to Colorado, there are so many activities I want to do and many parks I would love to explore. Growing up in the sunshine state where the heat is brutal, the weather here makes it easy to actually enjoy the outdoors. I enjoy being active with working out, biking, running in 5Ks, hiking, or any extracurricular activities. A few things I’m excited to try is ice fishing, skiing, snow tubing, or just building a snowman!
Hey there, I’m Karina! I work as an office administrator doing scheduling or corrections for Colorado In Motion (CIM). When I’m not doing my regular tasks, I cover for the administration team when someone is out. Think of me as the pinch hitter for the CIM team.
I was born and raised in deep South Texas. I recently moved out to Colorado to be closer to my niece and her family. I am loving what Colorado has to offer, although I do miss the Texas Hill Country from time to time. But nothing compares to the mountains and foothills. Being here, I’ve enjoyed meeting and making new friends with whom I go out on adventures with. You’ll usually find me either playing board games, outdoor activities, antique shopping, or chilling at the breweries on Friday nights.
Hello! My name is Miranda and I work at the Harmony office. My favorite part about working for Colorado In Motion is helping patients on their path to personal growth and watching them meet their goals.
