Aislinn Kottwitz, RN CCRN, has significant experience in healthcare and serving her community.
Aislinn has been a nurse for almost 20 years serving patients in Northern Colorado as an intensive care nurse and now serves in an administrative role for a rehabilitation hospital. Aside from her medical career and raising two daughters, she simultaneously found herself immersed in public policy and serving her community. She has volunteered and managed campaigns from local city council races to congressional campaigns and state-wide ballot initiatives. She was elected in to the Fort Collins City Council in 2009. This opportunity afforded her the pleasure of working seamlessly with opposing viewpoints to accomplish the goal of serving the citizens. She not only balanced an over $300 million dollar budget, but was amongst the first to create unprecedented policy surrounding the legalization of marijuana. The breadth of issues and collaboration on the local level continued to drive her involvement.

She has served on the Board of Directors for Liberty Common School for 7 years. Her leadership on natural resources, energy, and agriculture on the federal level allowed for influence over policy on issues near to her heart having grown up in a farming and ranching family in Southeastern Colorado.
