Sammie George joined the GOCO team in July 2021 as the Eastern Colorado Regional Officer. Prior to this position she was the Executive Director of the Bent County Development Foundation overseeing economic development throughout the county and working collaboratively throughout the region with neighboring economic development organizations. She serves on the Southeast Colorado Small Business Incubator Board of Directors, a nonprofit organization that provides workforce development programming and entrepreneurial support and incubation space. Sammie also participates on numerous other community boards involved in tourism, philanthropy, and business support. She has a BBA with emphasis in Management, Marketing, and Entrepreneurship with over 10 years of work experience in these fields and is currently working toward her Certified Economic Developer Certification.
Sammie was born and raised in the Lower Arkansas Valley, so she understands both the opportunities and the challenges of living in rural Colorado. After living on the Western Slope and in the Roaring Fork Valley, she and her family relocated to Rocky Ford where they now own Good Day Disc Golf, LLC- a disc golf mobile retail store. In her “spare time” Sammie enjoys disc golfing, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, horseback riding, paintballing, mountain biking, paddle boarding, camping, or simply sitting by a campfire with friends and family.
