Christal Ketteler


Hometown:  Denver, Colorado

Christal has two girls at Trails West, Kimberly in 5th grade, and Kennedy in 2nd grade. When she’s not running around the hallways of Trails West, she is a nurse at Parker Adventist Hospital in the ICU. She LOVES Trails West and the community that surrounds it. A school is only as strong as the community that supports it!


Jamie Rogers

1st Vice President

Hometown: Arvada, Colorado

This is Jamie’s third year on the PTO Board, and second as Vice President. She previously held the position of Secretary. In addition to her VP role, she will be heading the Communication Committee, as well as organizing the Spring Carnival. She has 2 kids at Trails West; Patrick is in fourth grade, and Isabelle is in fifth. She spends her free-time watching her kid's sporting events, enjoying life with family and friends, traveling the country, and exploring what Colorado has to offer.



Leslie Dalton

2nd Vice President

Hometown:  Hutchinson, Kansas

Leslie Dalton has been a Colorado resident for 3 1/2 years. She and her husband, Jake, have always wanted to call Colorado home as they grew up next door in KS. Three military moves, multiple deployments, and 4 states later we are finally home. Leslie feels very blessed to be able to volunteer in our school. Her favorite opportunities are the annual PTO catalog sale and the biannual Scholastic Book Fair. Leslie has 3 kids: 6th grader Thomas, 2nd grader Emilee, and Kindergartner Ava.

Hope Neal


Hometown:  Potomac, Maryland

Hope is serving her third (and final) year as the Board’s Treasurer. Her daughter, Callie, is in fifth grade. Hope joined the PTO to lend her support to the school as a whole, and has also volunteered her time in her daughter’s classrooms over the years. She keeps the organization’s finances in check and manages the PTO’s new website. Hope has been self-employed as a freelance marketing copywriter since 2001. In her spare time she contemplates writing a novel and enjoys spending time with her husband, her daughter, and her friends.


Jen Quigg


Hometown:  Aurora, Colorado

This is Jen's second year serving on the PTO board and her first year as co-secretary.  She served as office liaison last year and led the 5th grade girl scout troop in a year-long school community assistance program working closely with the teachers at Trails West.  She has helped get BINGO up and running and looks forward to continuing to help provide fun activities to build a stronger sense of community at our school.  Jen decided to get involved with the PTO because she loves the students and staff at Trails West and wanted to help inside the school more. Jen spends most of her off time at a sports field either watching her daughter, Reagan (6th grade), play competitive softball, her son, Ryan (3rd grade), play baseball or cheering on the Denver Broncos.



Gina Blakewell


Hometown:  Wausau, Wisconsin

This will be Gina’s second year on the PTO Board. Last year she enjoyed being one of the “Bingo Girls,” running the Holiday Shoppe, and helping with the Spring Carnival. In addition to her PTO duties, she leads the 3rd grade Girl Scout Troop. She and her husband Chris are both from Wisconsin, and have moved around quite a bit for his job. They love that Colorado has been home for almost 6 years. Their three daughters, Madelyn (6th grade), Violet (3rd grade), and Graycen (4 yrs old) are the driving force behind the family’s love of travel, exploring, and adventure.


 Tabitha Strezo

Board Member

Hometown:  Chicago, Illinois

This is Tabitha's second year supporting the PTO.  She has two children at Trails West: Payton in 3rd Grade, and MJ in Kindergarten. She realized that the best way to truly know what was going at school was by becoming an active participant in the Trails West community. She loves supporting the PTO by coordinating her favorite events- Community Restaurant Nights aka Momma's Not Cooking Nights which raise money for the school while building community.  Additionally, she serves on the Bingo Committee and assist where ever/whenever needed. She wears many hats including being a never-Stay-At-Home-Mom, Girl Scout Leader/School Coordinator, Soccer Coach, Sunday School Teacher & Nursery Director.

DeVonna Armstrong

Board Member

Hometown: West Point, Nebraska

DeVonna is married to Ty Armstrong and they have 3 kids.  Hannah - Freshman at Grandview High School, Christian - 7th grade Falcon Middle School and Gabe - 5th grade Trails West Elementary.  They are all involved in too many sports and activities to list, but DeVonna loves to make it to any and all the events that she can. DeVonna is originally from Nebraska but has lived in Colorado since 1995.  She has been involved with PTO/Volunteering at Trails West for many years but sadly this will be her last year. Her favorite event this year will be the Carnival as it is also the 5th grade send off. DeVonna believes it is so important to be involved with your children's education and school, as the support is needed for both your child and the school.
