Kirsten Atkins

I first came to Crested Butte in 1987 taking a semester off from college to ski and have been here ever since. Although I have travelled to many different places, I have always returned, not just for the beauty of this place but because of a sense of belonging to this incredible community.

My work experience here includes 27 winter seasons at the Adaptive Sports Center where I am the Instructor Trainer, waitressing at more than a half a dozen restaurants and bars, some stints in retail, housekeeping, landscaping, advertising sales, and probably a few other things long forgotten. I have also volunteered and been heavily involved in local and statewide environmental organizations.

KBUT has been a part of my Crested Butte experience for as long as I can remember. Helping with a Pete Smith memorial show, recording the Crested Butte Forest Rescue Turn it Up!dates, and hanging out with DJ friends at the bus barn are all cherished parts of my KBUT past. Currently, I enjoy listening to KBUT most of my days, and turn to my community radio station for news and information, often streaming KBUT when I am away from home. I am also a great ambassador "spreading the word", introducing the radio station to new arrivals in town and to visitors. My husband Heath and I have been financial supporters of KBUT for several years and will continue to do so into the future.

Looking forward, I am ready and willing to give back to this great organization with my time and effort. While I may not have the skill set to be a DJ, I feel that I have passion and leadership qualities that can help KBUT move into the future. I look forward to new challenges and to the many things that I can learn from working with the talented people of this organization. I have the time and energy to help ensure that our community radio station continues to be an amazing and valuable resource to our valley.

Marcus Lock

Marcus fell in love with the Gunnison Valley more than a decade ago and has been an avid listener of public radio for most of his life.  Marcus realizes how fortunate we are to have KBUT in our community and that this incredible resource exists as a direct result of the commitment and dedication of KBUT’s volunteers and staff.  Marcus depends on KBUT to satiate his eclectic taste in all things music, news, and entertainment.  Having enjoyed the benefit of KBUT for years, Marcus desires to give back to the radio station and the community through service on the Board.  As the managing member of Law of the Rockies, Marcus practices law in a wide range of areas.  He hopes that he will be able to use his knowledge and experience as an attorney to further the interests of KBUT and help protect this valuable community asset.   If elected to the Board, Marcus intends to bring the same creative energy and work ethic to KBUT that he does to his professional life.  When Marcus is not in the office, he is usually spending time with his wife and five kids in this gigantic playground we all call home.   

Nancy Wicks

Nancy Wicks moved to the Gunnison Valley in 1992. She grew up in Iowa surrounded by farms and was inspired to be a farmer while doing a study abroad in a small village in Nepal during college. Nancy has been striving to live “sustainably” at the base of Round Mountain with all her electricity coming from the sun and wind and living in a straw bale house and growing year-round in a well insulated greenhouse.

In 2002 Nancy established Round Mountain Institute to promote sustainable living, alternative building and organic gardening through education programs. Through this non-profit endeavor, Nancy learned a lot about what a board member’s responsibilities entail. Now Nancy is excited to be a part of the KBUT Board of Directors. She also wrote a few grants and attended a workshop during college that emphasized how focusing on major donors raises a lot more money than multiple special events.

Nancy Wicks would like to serve on the KBUT Board of Directors because for the past 22 years KBUT has been a constant part of her life. KBUT is like Nancy’s roommate out on the farm! Nancy is so ready to give back to her community by helping KBUT grow and thrive.
