Vinny was born and raised on the beautiful sweeping plains of Colorado.

It was at CSU that Vinny found his passion for serving students through mentoring youth within the Fort Collins community. Eventually, Vinny ended up working in college admissions upon graduation where he helped students find their educational fit at CSU. Now serving as the College Advisor at East High School, Vinny thrives in helping students find their path after high school.

Taylor is a Colorado Springs native and a first-generation college student. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in religion from Colorado College. She loved working with youth throughout high school, but it wasn’t until college that she discovered her passion for mentorship and education advocacy. After working in admissions, she knew she wanted to continue in a field where she could guide students through the challenging college application process. Taylor could not be more thrilled to be a part of the DSF family and hopes to continue learning about the nonprofit sector.
