Patricia (Patty) is originally from Chihuahua, Mexico. She moved to Leadville in 1999. Patty had three children Alberto, Evelyn, and Jose (18, 16, 12) who attend Lake County Schools. Aside one from sister nearby, the rest of Patty’s family still resides in Mexico.

Patty found a perfect fit as the head of Familias Juntas, a program dedicated to introducing the Latinx community of Lake County to outdoor activities and opportunities. She has found a passion for helping youth & families expand their horizons and grow through their interactions with the outdoors, hoping to inspire stewardship on a generational level.

She enjoys skiing, snowshoeing, movies, and any activity where she gets to spend quality time with her family. For more information on Familias Juntas, please contact Patricia Esparza at:
