As programs manager, Garrett oversees the Boettcher Foundation’s portfolio of leadership grants, scholar enrichment grants and the Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Awards program. He also assists with communications efforts and social media.
Prior to joining the Boettcher Foundation, Garrett worked as a fellow at El Pomar Foundation, where he hosted international visitors, launched an environmental stewardship program, and supported grants and communications. He also was also an intern with the grants and scholarship programs at the Boettcher Foundation.
Raised in Arvada, Garrett attended the University of Colorado Boulder as a Boettcher Scholar, where he studied Spanish, Portuguese and International Affairs and was a Presidents Leadership Class member and class advisor. His penchant for travel and language led him abroad to Brazil, Costa Rica and Belgium, but his heart feels at home among the sunny skies and promising people of Colorado.
