About our speaker:
Colleen Hodson was born and raised in Alaska and has always loved the outdoors and all it has to offer. She moved to Cody Wyoming as a young adult and fell head over heels in love with the western way of life. Being the Director of the National Dude Ranchers Association (DRA) for the last 16 years has allowed her the opportunity visit over 140 ranches and to experience some of the most majestic places and people in the Western United States and Canada. At the DRA we are all about Horses, Hats, History, Hospitality, Heart and Honesty.
Previously to being employed by the DRA Hodson along with her husband and two sons ran a very successful summer pack trip and outfitting business along with a water business and candy business.
