Dawn Perez - Treasurer

Bonnie Ashton - Secretary
Bonnie grew up on a farm in Michigan, and has a degree from Michigan State University in Early Childhood Development and Social Studies.  In 1973, after teaching first grade for 8 years, she knew she wanted to work with special needs children and earned her Master’s Degree from Adams State College in the area of Multiply Handicapped.  She taught 5, 6, and 7 year olds with special learning challenges for 10 years and then returned to the regular classroom for 16 years.  After moving from Michigan to California to Colorado, she calls beautiful Colorado home.  She has one son who coaches the professional soccer team (D.C. United) in Washington, D.C. and tries to visit there as often as possible.  She also spends time with her poodle, Lilly.  ACAN has and is playing an important part in Bonnie’s life.  As a volunteer for Health Passport, Bonnie attended her first ACAN meeting about 10 years ago and hasn’t stopped coming!  When she retired from teaching, she knew that she had to be out in the “people” world, so became a volunteer with Health Passport, Saint Anthony Hospital, her HOA, (Architectural Control Committee Chair and Landscaping Committee) and now is Secretary of ACAN and has been a member of the Conference Planning Committee for several years.  It is very rewarding to her to be able to share the information that she has learned with others around her.

Joyce has lived in Thornton for 44 years. She started when her children were in kindergarten, helping in the classroom as well as being co-president of the PTA at Woodglen Elementary, co-facilitator of Woodglens' School Improvement Team and later participating in Adams County District 12's District School Improvement Team. When Joyce starting working for Kaiser Permanente, she developed a strong interest in making sure that the elderly patients received the help they needed. She helped with scheduling appointments at a time when the patients would be able to get transportation, connecting them with an appropriate nurse for medical advice, and transferring their calls to a representative in the appropriate departments to assist them with issues such as getting copies of medical records or finding out what out-of-pocket expenses they might have for a test or procedure. After retiring in 2013, she started attending the ACAN meetings. She has been a board member for 3 years. She was recently appointed to serve as a member on the Denver Regional Council of Governments' Advisory Committee on Aging representing Adams County.
