Gale feels blessed and honored to be Clearwater’s Graphic Designer. She is originally from Minnesota and moved to Colorado in 1998. Gale has held a variety of jobs through her careers including management positions and Helirappel Wildland Firefighting. Yes, she has rappelled out of perfectly good helicopters to fight forest fires and loved every second of it! In 2006 she transitioned from six years of Wildland Firefighting to become a Graphic Designer. Gale now runs her own Graphic Design business and Metalsmith Jewelry business.
Gale is passionate about helping oppressed people. In 2010 she founded an anti-human trafficking organization called Wake People Up which exists to offer resources for and to educate people about human trafficking, as it occurs locally and globally.
Gale is married to her wonderful husband, Nate, who works for the Loveland Police Department. She enjoys hiking, rockhounding and target shooting with her husband.
