Robert Brocker – Bob is a semi-retired railroad operations, IT, and business development executive and management consultant who has lived in Denver for nearly twenty years. He became interested in senior-related issues nearly ten years ago and since 2010 has served as a board member and volunteer of A Little Help, a non-profit whose mission is to connect neighbors to help seniors thrive. Advocating for Seniors, to help seniors thrive, in community, has become Bob’s mission. He became actively involved with CSL early in 2017. Bob and his wife Judith love living in Denver and have adopted it as home.

Kelsey Lesco – Kelsey obtained her master’s degree in public administration from the University of Arizona and her law degree from the University of Oregon. In July 2014, Kelsey was hired as a staff attorney for the Protection & Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness Program. Kelsey coordinates Disability Law Colorado’s Olmstead Program, including extensive work on the Nursing Home Project, which helps to move people with mental illness and developmental disabilities living in nursing homes back into the community.

Diane Martini – Diane has always had a love for older adults and has been in the senior industry for over 17 years. She is currently in her eleventh year as the Marketing Director at the Eastern Star Masonic Retirement Campus. Diane is an expert in helping seniors and their families find appropriate homes for those who need more help or for those seniors who no longer want to do maintenance on the homes they have lived in for 50+ years. She loves working with seniors and finds fulfillment in helping families find the “right place”. In her spare time, Diane is an avid Salsa dancer performing for the residents and at various events around Denver.
