Renie Krummel will be leaving her post as administrative assistant this month as well. She is in the process of selling her home in Summit County after 30+ years and hopes to move to the front range soon. Her last day is October 15.
We would like to introduce you to CASA of the Continental Divide’s new Administrative Assistant and Bookkeeper, Allison Bustin. Allison recently celebrated her third anniversary with her husband and their son’s second birthday. She grew up in Mifflintown, PA and also started her family there. In November 2014, she and her family moved from Mifflintown to Steamboat Springs, CO so that her husband could pursue a career in law enforcement. From Steamboat, the Bustins relocated to Kremmling, CO. Allison has many years experience in office management and bookkeeping at the former Richard S. Mills, Inc. Mechanical Services and Beacon of Hope Counseling. She is very excited to bring her experience and knowledge to CASA of the Continental Divide and looks forward to working with current staff, volunteers, and board members.
