Consuelo Redhorse

Board Member

Consuelo has jumped in as our finance wizard. Bringing some of her bookkeeping skills from her day job, and also lending insights from her role on the local school board. Consuelo has caught the Smart Bellies bug in a hurry -she believes all kids deserve to be happy and emotionally stable and that we can help. She’s a Colorado native, and has lived in Summit County for 10 years with her husband, Jacob, and daughter, Jaxon. She devotes a lot of her spare time to helping our local youth - a Girl Scout leader and Girls on the Run coach - but also loves camping, walking her Newfie (Chewy!), hanging with her cat (Inky!), skiing and rock climbing.

Sarah Schmidt

Co-Founder

Sarah is one of our Co-Founders. She’s spent her career in nonprofit management, partly at a backpack program in Florida (called Food for Thought - check them out!). In our first few years, Sarah has taken the lead on our development, grant writing and finances. It’s because of Sarah’s steady and spirited belief in feeding kids that we’ve gotten this far - Sarah always says we focus on kids because they can’t always focus on themselves. Sarah grew up in Menasha, WI and lives with her husband (Joseph!), brand new baby boy (August!) and pup (Moose!) in Fairplay, CO. Sarah is a fantastic cook, a big sports fan, and she loves to hike and camp. 

 

*Shout out to her husband, Joe, for helping us get off the ground lending muscle and wisdom every step of the way.

Jason Beekman

Board Member

Jason is our lawyer. Before Jason came along we operated on hand shake deals and crossed fingers - he spends most of his time setting Smart Bellies up for a long future of feeding kids - insurance, waivers, bylaws and more. None of his legal advice comes without influence from his big heart. Jason grew up being very involved in his community, and believes that kids deserve access to healthy food options. As a day job, Jason is an entertainment lawyer out of New York, NY. His roots are in Washington, DC and he enjoys tennis, travel and showtunes.

Kara Hahn

Board Member

Kara is our fundraising and events guru. She’s a creative spirit with great ideas and lots of chutzpah. She works in strategic partnerships which makes sense because Kara is a great partner and community thinker in every sense of the word. She’s spent her career teaching, logisticating and marketing at a variety of nonprofits, and we’re lucky to have her brain in our game. Originally from Wichita, KS, Kara spent time in Arizona, then Boston, and now lives with her husband, Jake, and daughter, Margot, in Denver spending her free time on home projects (@spruce_and_spackle), keeping up with her square dancing skills and teaching Margot to change the world.

David Morris

Board Member

David is a founding member and has been around since we were just a few friends packing out of his apartment living room in Breckenridge. He’s been our local guide, a constant head in the game, and is now helping us with our expansion and logistics. Although he got roped in because of his friendship with Sarah and Margaret, David’s come to believe in the spirit of Smart Bellies and loves what it adds to our community. David grew up in Charlottesville, VA and after a stint in Europe moved to Breck for the past 13 years. He’s in event production, construction, teaching and coaching. An avid lacrosse guy, skier (check out summit2ski.com), mountain and road biker, and general adventurer.

Margaret Sheehe

Co-Founder

Margaret has also been here from the beginning as one of our Co-Founders. Her mom runs the local food cupboard where she is from and she was raised to believe that everyone should have access to consistent food that makes them feel good. Kids especially. Outside of Smart Bellies, she works for OP3, Inc planning walks, runs and bike rides for an assortment of foundations and causes. She has a big family back home in Pennsylvania and currently lives in Colorado with her dog, Harriet. She loves snuggling Sarah’s baby, fly fishing and attempting to garden at high altitude.
