Dolly Schaub

I grew up in New England, spending most of my time outdoors. The end of the school day meant playtime – grabbing my best friend who lived next door, we would play tirelessly in the woods behind our homes. I was introduced to skiing at age 2 and it became an instant passion, and still is today. Thanks to my childhood, I have a deep love for the earth, the environment, and all who inhabit it.

In 1989, I moved to Colorado to attend Colorado College. Block Breaks were often spent rock climbing in Penetente Canyon or skiing in Crested Butte. When I graduated in 1993, Crested Butte became my home for the next 20 years. I spent 15 years in the ski industry – ski instructing and coaching ski racing. As exciting as it was to live my passion on a daily basis, I yearned for something more. Then, in 2006, I was introduced to the financial services industry. I knew I had found my lifelong career path as it combines my love for numbers and analyzing along with the education and helping of people work towards their goals and passions.

After the birth of my twins, in 2009, I officially left the recreation industry with the sale of Dolly’s Mountain Shuttle. Having the flexibility to balance my time between my clients and my children is a blessing.

Socially Responsible Investing is an exciting focus that is now front and center in my practice. Aligning my values with all aspects of my life is invigorating and motivating. As we face possible global warming and a growing world population, protection of the environment that sustains us physically and feeds our souls is essential.

I look forward to working with you!
