COMMUNITY/SCHOOL: Faith Christian Academy 12189 W. 64th Ave., Arvada | 303-424-7310 | gofaitheagles.com

“We are striving to cultivate a Christ-centered, biblically-based educational culture that develops each student holistically by engaging, encouraging, challenging and calling each student to excel in mind, soul, body and heart to fulfill God’s purpose for their life.” — Pastor Jason King, Senior Pastor Faith Bible Chapel

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Faith Christian Academy is a K-12 college-prep Christian school that is a part of the ministry of Faith Bible Chapel. FCA strives to inspire and equip students to use their unique gifts to passionately represent Christ. Pursuing excellence in education and the development of a Biblical worldview, FCA guides students to dis cover and develop their unique spiritual, intellectual, creative and physical gifts and to develop a lifestyle of loving God and loving people through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Faith Christian Academy began in 1972 as Jesus Center School, an independent Christian school located in north Denver. For 16 years the school was primarily housed in the former Mount Carmel school building at 36th and Zuni. In 1988, the school moved to Arvada and became a part of the Faith Bible Chapel ministry, taking on the new name of Faith Christian Academy. Faith Christian Academy has a rich history and is excited to be entering its 50th year this fall.

Faith Christian Academy is known for excellence in academics, athletics, STEM and the fine arts. FCA graduates are well prepared for life after high school, and FCA alumnae are making an impact in the lives of others locally and around the world.

“I believe our bodies have a natural ability to heal – if given the right tools, support and environment. Boundless Body and Wellness exists to nurture, guide and help others to break free from pain and struggle in their health and well-being. We were not meant to be bound by our bodies, but to live boundless.” — Amber Stevens, owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Boundless is a whole-body, deeply client-centered wellness practice offering integrative and therapeutic massage and health coaching. Its massage is a blend of all modalities from Swedish and deep tissue, to myofascial release and neuromuscular, to give clients the treatment they need to recover, release and feel fully functional and pain-free in daily life.

Amber Stevens started Boundless Body and Wellness in 2007 as Cairn Massage Therapy in Wheat Ridge. In 2014, she finally landed in Arvada and has been very happy to call it home. In 2015, Stevens expanded her knowledge and services, becoming a nationally boardcertified health and wellness coach and mindful eating instructor, author and speaker. Today, Boundless Body and Wellness is adding services and growing. She has been voted Best of the Best for massage and health coaching for 2018, 2019 and 2021.

FOOD TRUCK: Cajun Kings 720-799-3729 | cajunkingsco.com “Cajun Kings represents family and small-town values that we were raised on in Louisiana. It has been an honor and privilege to represent our family and our Louisiana roots here in Colorado. We strive every day to make our families proud of the product we produce and feel honored when a customer tells us our food reminds them of being back home. And as we say back home... Laissez Les Bon Temps Rouler.” — Owner Cody Vice

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Cajun Kings is an authentic Cajun cuisine food truck. Recipes used on the truck have been passed down from multiple generations and some date as far back as the 1800s. It is very important to Cajun Kings that a majority of the ingredients used are from Louisiana. Owners Cody and Natalie Vice travel to Louisiana to utilize small-town processors, familyowned crawfish ponds, local shrimp fishermen, and privately produced seasonings/hot sauces to make sure they have the freshest Louisiana-sourced products in Colorado. Cajun Kings is known for their shrimp po-boy, fried alligator, and the popular Granny’s Rice Dressing. Everything on the truck is cooked from scratch daily, hand battered to order, and delivered direct from Louisiana to provide the most authentic and fresh Cajun cuisine in Colorado.

Cajun Kings is a product of Cody and Natalie’s dream to bring small-town Louisiana Cajun cooking to Colorado. When Covid-19 caused a shutdown of Cody’s oilfield businesses, they saw a perfect opportunity to make their dream a reality. It was at this time that they invited Cody’s brothers Christian and Coy as well as their wives, Ashley and Nicole, to come to Colorado and join the Cajun Kings team. Using recipes from grandparents and a traditional Cajun style of cooking is important to everyone. By Thelma Grimes

COMMUNITY HIKING/BIKING TRAIL: High Line Canal Conservancy 4010 E. Orchard Road, CentenniaL | 720-767-2452 | highlinecanal.org

“To me the canal is a place to connect with nature. It is also a place to understand and experience the diversity that we have in this region that we call Denver. It is really a tremendous resource for the community and a place to relax and find solace.” — Harriet Crittenden LaMair, executive director

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

The High Line Canal Conservancy’s mission is to preserve, protect and enhance the 71-mile legacy High Line Canal in partnership with the public. The canal trail is one of the longest and most spectacular linear parks in the nation. It spans 11 governmental jurisdictions stretching from Waterton Canyon in Douglas County, passing through Centennial en route to its end in Aurora. The canal’s cottonwood banks weave through residential neighborhoods, public parks, golf courses, cemeteries, commercial and industrial lands, and over and under urban throughways, all while offering those traveling its banks a slice of nature in the city.

The Conservancy was founded in 2014 to provide leadership that reflects the public’s commitment to the canal’s sustainable future. It works collaboratively with its partners, including Denver Water, as well as the local governmental jurisdictions and stormwater managers along the canal’s reach. The conservancy’s efforts will lead to a natural, more connected corridor with improved access, amenities, and safety for all trail users.

ICE CREAM: Rose’s Creamery 166 Main St., Elizabeth | 303-646-6469 | rosescreamery.com

“After staying in the county last year because of COVID-19, we tried to spread out so people didn’t have to always come to the same place. We try and lift up the local businesses and kids in Elbert County, but the biggest thing is thanking everyone in the county for supporting us.” — Jim Rose, Owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

When Jim and Tammy Rose, founders of Rose’s Creamery, started selling ice cream at farmers markets, they noticed no nut butter options. So, Jim Rose started making his own. Though the couple continues to create new ice cream flavors, they also sell more than 20 varieties of nut butter. For years, their best seller has been honey-roasted peanut butter.

Tammy and Jim Rose started Rose’s Creamery in 2001 out of a store in Elizabeth. Only a year or two after opening their ice cream shop, the couple closed their retail location and switched to a completely mobile business model. They have a few employees who help make ice cream out of a commercial kitchen in Elizabeth and serve it at fundraisers, farmers markets, county fairs and high school events.

Wanting to expand, several years ago, the couple began selling ready-to-bake and thaw-and-serve pies. To date, the key-lime custard option is one of the most popular. Out of all ice cream flavors, Rose’s Creamery vanilla is popular because it can be used for special treats like root beer floats. The company’s signature flavor is blue watermelon sherbet, one of the first offered when the Rose’s opened the store and a staple for kids in Elbert County.

SPA: One Mind Spa 166 S Main St, Elizabeth | 720-854-4821 | onemindspa.net

“I was set to open right before we went into lockdown and given orders to close. This was a scary time, but I took the opportunity to focus my energy into positivity. Since the ‘okay’ to open our doors, support from our community has been unbelievable.” — Elly Marquez, Owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

One Mind Spa Owner Elly Marquez believes that health, wellness and beauty are all connected. She has been in the industry for years before becoming her own business’ esthetician, hoping to provide a space for her clients to grow. In addition to offering massages and body treatments, One Mind Spa also has a light therapy service to stimulate collagen production, an oxygen bar, along with lash extensions, brow tinting and waxing, among other services.

Elly Marquez has always loved makeup, which inspired her to get into cosmetics and skin care. She is a licensed esthetician in Colorado and opened One Mind Spa last summer in her hometown. Though the official event was delayed because of the pandemic, Marquez launched her online store and, later, officially opened her doors in July on Main Street in Elizabeth.

Because everyone has different needs and goals when it comes to their skin, One Mind Spa has facial treatments for both relaxation and problem areas. The spa’s signature facial includes a blend of organic ingredients with a choice of three enrichments, like a peel, jelly mask or extractions. Because the signature facial is customized by the client and esthetician, it is suitable for all skin types.

ADOPTION/SHELTER SERVICES: MAMCO Rescue 2721 W. Oxford Ave., Suite No. 7, Englewood | 720-606-9658 | mamcorescue.org

“My philosophy is that ‘in order to love dogs, you must also love people.’ This means that we take care of our fosters, adopters and the people in the communities we serve with the same love and concern that we offer to the dogs.” — Aron C. Jones, founder and executive director

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

MAMCO Rescue is a foster-based rescue that specializes in rescuing pregnant and nursing dogs from high-kill shelters in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico. In addition to pregnant and nursing dogs, MAMCO also accepts litters of unwanted or orphaned puppies from the communities they serve. Litters of puppies are only accepted from private owners under the condition that the owners allow MAMCO to spay/neuter any unaltered animals that will remain in the household. This service has been incredibly beneficial in low-income areas in both Colorado and Texas, where pets are routinely unaltered due to the financial limitations of the residents. When moms and puppies are brought into Colorado they are housed in foster homes, where MAMCO ensures that they receive quality food and veterinary care prior to adoption.

Aron C. Jones founded MAMCO in August of 2017 in an office in Lakewood. By February 2019, the organization needed more space and moved to its current location. With such a quick expansion, there was a lot to learn, so staff took on the attitude of “learn and adapt”. The organization frequently changes the protocols to ensure the best possible outcomes for the dogs, fosters, adopters and the community. To date, MAMCO have rescued 8,402 moms and puppies.

SANDWICH: D’Deli 1207 Washington Ave., Golden | 303-279-8020 | ddeligolden.com

“We make big sandwiches, offer consistency and customer service, and are priced competitively. When you have been in a place for a while people trust you, and trust is what gets you there. We like to keep things simple.” — Al Neighbors, owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

D’Deli makes big, fun sandwiches, often by using specialty meats (from Wheat Ridge’s Edwards Meats) like smoked and corned elk and buffalo, on homemade bread. Variety is the spice of life at D’Deli, and owner Al Neighbors said the restaurant is always looking for new and different combinations – that’s how options like the Gold Hill (roast beef, blue cheese aioli, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, beets, jicama and Spinach) and Jackwagon (peanut butter, jelly, honey, sriracha, sunflower seeds, bacon, crispy fried onions, pineapple, jalapenos and banana peppers) came to be. Most of the sandwiches served can be turned into a salad or a spinach wrap for those looking to shake things up.

Built in 1901, the building that now houses D’Deli was originally known as the Oxford Bar. Eventually, the saloon was busted for gambling and had to close its doors and in 1975, Government Agent Tom Lehmann opened Joyce’s subs, bringing the first sub shop into the building. By the year 2000, a Dutch couple, Ton and Vera Kiphardt, bought Joyce’s Subs. The Dutch pronunciation of “The Deli” was “D’deli,” a name stuck, even when Neighbors bought it in 2004.

CHIROPRACTOR: Golden Health Chiropractic 410 9th St., Golden | 720-593-2225 | GoldenHealthChiropractic.com

“I believe that created within all of us is an intelligent capacity for healing, and that we all deserve our highest expression of Golden health from our first breath to our last. To achieve this and more, a healthy functioning nervous system is paramount. We should therefore live a life free of nerve interference to fully express our human potential.” — Dr. Kevin Holman, founder of Golden Health Chiropractic

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Dr. Kevin Holman, founder of Golden Health Chiropractic, believes that to solve and prevent any condition, the first thing is to understand how it began. Golden Health Chiropractic aims to remove nerve interference through the very scientific and specific location, analysis and correction of vertebral subluxation.

In April 2017 it started in a small 10-by-10 room with a waiting area. Quickly growing out of the space, Golden Health Chiropractic acquired a yoga studio in the Golden Well Being Collective. The expansion provided a superior experience for practice members and allowed increased community outreach. The team has created a successful and congruent atmosphere with an unwavering mission to do everything to help people live their best lives through the amazing benefits of chiropractic.

To solve and prevent any condition, the first thing is to understand how it began. The brain and spinal cord use nerves as their communication pathways. Nerves control and regulate the function of every organ, tissue, cell and gland in the body. Nerve interference promotes dysfunction, sickness and disease. What they do at Golden Health Chiropractic is simple: they remove nerve interference through the very scientific and specific location, analysis and correction of vertebral subluxation. This is their specialty.

“We have one goal here at Crumbl... To bring family and friends together over the best box of cookies in the world.“ — Janae Jackman, Franchise Partner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Crumbl Cookies is a tech-driven, franchise model bakery that offers a weekly rotating selection of gourmet cookies. Crumbl’s menu consists of 120+ specialty cookie flavors inspired by cakes, candies, pies, and desserts of all kinds. All cookies are made in an openconcept kitchen where cookies are rolled out, balled, and baked fresh daily. Cookies are then packaged in a signature pink box and sent home to be enjoyed.

The original Crumbl was founded in Utah by Sawyer Hemsley, one of the co-founders of Crumbl. Crumbl Cookies came to Colorado in 2019 with the first location in Greenwood Village. A year later, the popular franchise opened in Parker and then shortly after that moved into Highlands Ranch.

DENTIST: Highlands Ranch Smiles 9461 S. University Blvd., Highlands Ranch | 720-644-8186 | highlandsranchcoloradodentist.com

“We are so grateful to our patients for voting us Best of the Best for the seventh year in a row. I know our success has come from having a dedicated team that genuinely wants to treat each patient like family. It is our goal that patients can feel this difference when they first walk into our office.” — Dr. Michelle Haynes, Owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Highlands Ranch Smiles is a family and cosmetic dentistry office that enjoys seeing infants through great-grandparents. The four general dentists have each focused their continuing education and experience on different areas so Highlands Ranch Smiles can offer implant dentistry, pediatric dentistry, orthodontic care, and cosmetic dentistry. Over the last 10 years, the group has cultivated an entire team of women that have a passion for educating patients, listening to their concerns and helping them achieve a beautiful, healthy smile in as comfortable an environment as possible.

Highlands Ranch Smiles dental office has existed in its current location at South University and Highlands Ranch Parkway since the early 1990s. Dr. Michelle Haynes purchased the practice 10 years ago in 2011. Since taking ownership, the office has continued to grow. Dr. Courtney McKeever joined the team in 2013, followed by Dr. Amanda McCabe in 2016, and Dr. Jessica Parry in 2019. The office was expanded and renovated in 2014, adding more technology and comfort.

AUTO DEALER: Prestige Imports 9201 W. Colfax Ave., Lakewood | 833-825-5423 | prestigeimports.net

“We try to make the customer experience the best it can be. We place a lot of emphasis on the customer and building lifelong relationships with them. In some cases, we’ve sold generations of people cars. It might be an old-school approach, but in the day and age of every thing being on the internet, we feel you still need a personal touch.” — Scott West, general manager

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Auto retailer that specializes in new and pre-owned Porsche and Audi vehicles and goes beyond selling cars to build a relationship with customers. That might be in the form of housing a fullservice facility for all makes and models — not just Porsche and Audi — or embracing the enthusiasts’ communities that form around these cars. That means supporting the Audi Club of America and the Porsche Club of America and hosting a variety of customer appreciation events throughout the year, including the Winter Driving Event, the Spring Mountain Tour, the Day at The Track and Oktoberfest.

The West Colfax location has been a car dealership as far back as the 1970s and has become a fixture on the avenue since its opening as Prestige in 1984. It currently has about 150 employees. The company “wears its West Colfax affiliation with pride,” according to General Manager Scott West. Prestige supports the West Colfax Community Association, West Colfax Business Improvement District and 40 West Arts.

ATTORNEY: Andersen Law PC 7991 Shaffer Pkwy. Unit 203, Littleton | 720-922-3880 | bethlynnandersenjd.com

“Our goal is to protect your family, your finances and your future. If you hate attorneys, you have not hired us yet.” — Beth Andersen, owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Andersen Law PC is a family law, probate and estate planning law firm. Andersen Law is proud to be a Littleton-based law firm. Beth Andersen-Filson aka Beth Andersen is the attorney and owner. She lives in Littleton and is honored to serve her Littleton friends and neighbors. Andersen Law represents a range of clients from young couples starting out with their first wills to mid-lifers seeking life after divorce to retirees passing on their wealth to the next generation.

In 2014, Beth Andersen-Filson opened the doors to Andersen Law PC. Originally from South Dakota and Colorado, Andersen attended law school in upstate New York followed by work at a New York litigation firm and a legal services non-profit. After moving to Colorado, Andersen soon learned she had a calling to help families with their day-to-day legal issues and a desire to improve upon the manner in which family law was practiced - too slow, too inhumane and too expensive, in her opinion.

Andersen Law is able to deliver the same results as larger, less efficient firms at a more affordable cost to clients. The Andersen Law team includes office managers Jody Dertina and Rosie Battaglia-Hermanson, litigation supervisor Philadelphia George, attorney Jacob Castonguay, and several top-notch contractors.

PHYSICAL THERAPY: Lone Tree Physical Therapy 13075 Park Meadows Dr. #570, Lone Tree | 303-708-8811 | lonetreept.com

“People come to me because their pain is limiting their lifestyle. People thank me that they’ve got their life back.” — Joseph Patton, owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

At Lone Tree Physical Therapy, the primary goal is to create success stories for every patient, every day. Every patient who comes to Lone Tree Physical Therapy deserves and receives individualized, custom treatment. That is because no two physical ailments are the same. Creating highly personalized therapies that a re designed for each, unique patient.

Joseph Patton had years of experience as a physical therapist overseeing multiple clinics in several states, but he realized that if you want something done right, you have got to do it yourself. Patton, who also lives in Lone Tree, opened his practice in 2003. He says his practice is about as busy as his space will allow – though he does not plan on moving anytime soon.

Lone Tree Physical Therapy is not a huge practice, but it gets huge results. Emphasizing hands-on, one-on-one treatment, Lone Tree Physical Therapy does not utilize aides or assistants – patients get the full attention of highly-trained certified physical therapists through their whole visit. Half of its business is through word-of-mouth. Owner Joseph Patton and fellow therapists April Manint and Donna Pepe specialize in complex spine and joint orthopedic cases.

DANCE STUDIO/COMPANY: Parker Dance Academy 19557 E Parker Square Dr, Parker | 303-840-7407 | parkerdance.com

“We invite you to come visit our studio and see for yourself how important the ‘heart’ of a studio is to the experience dancers and their families will have. We believe that if you are selective, you will select Parker Dance Academy. — Kim Kinnear, Artistic Director & Owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Parker Dance Academy is a dance studio offers dance to students of all ages. Instruction at Parker Dance spans from recreational dance to competitive dance, with multiple performances throughout the year. From bringing the magic to dancers with a full-scale performance of The Nutcracker during the holidays, to the full-story-line recital in the spring, Parker Dance makes sure there is something for anyone who loves to put on music and dance like no one is watching.

Parker Dance Academy was started in 1991 by Kim Kinnear. She started with one small studio and a dream to create and bring her love of dance to the community of Parker. Over the last 30 years, the business has grown, moving into a much bigger space where they continue to create an amazing community of new and old students. Several of Kinnear’s students have gone off to do amazing things in the dance world. Some have performed on Broadway, appeared in television or film, and worked with dance companies around the world. A few even chose to come back to be a part of the studio in a new way, as a teacher. Last year, Kinnear selected Lexie Steinhauser to be her new Studio Director. Steinhauser grew up at Parker Dance Academy, working at the studio over the last seven years. Steinhauser and Kinnear have worked closely together to keep the studio’s heart and philosophy an important part of how to teach and create. By Thelma Grimes

WORKOUT/FITNESS: Burn Boot Camp 12840 Stroh Ranch Ct. #103, Parker | 303-827-8622 | burnbootcamp.com/locations/parker

“When I started working out at Burn Boot Camp it changed my life. I knew it was my mission to bring that to the Parker community. At Burn I am passionate about helping others find the best version of themselves.” — Barbara Williams, Operations Manager

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Burn Boot Camp elite trainers work with clients one-on-one in camp to help them achieve goals. Workouts target different muscle groups throughout the week, providing the best results. All workouts can be modified up or down, so the high-intensity strength and cardio workouts will push clients no matter where they are in the fitness journey. Clients will gain discipline that transcends fitness and maximizes the quality of life.

Sarah & Carman Ragatz fell in love with the Burn Boot Camp Franchise when they lived in North Carolina. Within a few short months, they decided to open their own in Parker. Their family of six moved to Colorado in 2017 to begin building their dream. Sarah thrives on the relationships she has built with the members as owner and head trainer.

Once a client steps into a burn workout gym, they become a part of our burn family.

HAIR SALON/BARBER SHOP: Yacht Club Salon 6350 W. 92nd Ave., No. B, Westminster | 303-427-2567 | yachtclubsalon.com

“It’s not just about how you look; it’s about how you feel. Our team focuses on the person and their needs first, and then their hair or nails. We know if you feel good then you always look good.” — Heidi Casler, owner of Yacht Club Salon

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Specializes in bringing the best hair and natural nail services to the Denver Northwest area. The salon was designed to be a comfortable and luxurious space for both the guests and staff to spend time in. As a Redken Black Elite salon, several times a year the amazing team participates in ongoing education from the top educators in the world, so clients are always receiving the newest and greatest techniques and products available. Hair services include specialized coloring, balayage, vivids, hair design, extensions (including handtied extensions), as well as texturizing services. The best and safest manicures and pedicures are also on the menu. From a simple polish change to a spa pedicure and shellac manicure, Yacht Club Salon has it all. And soon the hope is to bring back the beauty bar where guests can enjoy a glass of wine, beer or cider while visiting the salon.

The Yacht Club Salon has been in the Arvada and Westminster areas for more than 30 years. In 2013 it moved from 68th and Sheridan to the custom-built space in Westminster near the intersection of 92nd and Sheridan. The third owner, Heidi Casler, has owned the salon for 20 years this December and has grown the business to be what the staff believes to be the best in the area. The salon team has won best of the best in Arvada and Westminster numerous times. By Clarke Reader

“’While you’re away, your pets will play,’ is what we like to say. We would like everyone to know their pets are in safe, caring hands with 3 Happy Dogs and we truly love what we do.” — Lisa Barros, owner of 3 Happy Dogs LLC

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

3 Happy Dogs provides professional pet-sitting and dog-walking services while pet owners are out of town or away at work. Clients’ pets get to stay at home so they can feel safe in their own environment. The business provides services for all of Arvada,Westminster and Wheat Ridge.

3 Happy Dogs started in 2005 with a previous owner. As Lisa Barros worked closely with her starting in 2011, the previous owner realized Barros was a great fit to fill her shoes. Barros took over ownership in 2013. Currently, it is Lisa and her husband Nick running the business.

Owners Lisa and Nick Barros love and care for everyone’s pet as if they were their own. Pet sitting and dog walking are the Barroses’ full-time career, and they love every minute. A couple of their specialties are working with all kinds of pets and helping the shy dogs come out of their shell. They can give medications, bandages, insulin injections and sub-q fluids.

“ ‘You don’t take a photograph, you make it.’ — Ansel Adams. This especially resonates with me because I don’t just show up and snap a photo. I stop, I think about the light, I think about the angle, I think about the story we want to tell. I strive to make the best photo I can that fits story my client wants to tell.” — Blu Hartkopp, owner

WHAT THEY DO:

HISTORY:

Blu Hartkopp is a commercial photographer (still images) and director of photography (video), specializing in imagery to help businesses sell their services and products. In a single week, he might capture headshots, photograph a newly-completed building for an architect and photograph a new product being brought to market in the next 90 days.

Blu Hartkopp started out as a fine art photographer in 2007, and after almost selling out his first show he won a scholarship to the Hallmark Institute of Photography in Massachusetts followed by an internship with the Maine Media Work shop. He returned to Colorado, diving headfirst into his own fulltime studio. He said he and his wife Katie purchased the old Thedie Apple Arcreage in Wheat Ridge and the rest is history.

Every job is different, which is what owner Blu Hartkopp loves.
