RANGELY I Congratulations to Amanda Rens-Moon. She is moving from her current job as administrative assistant to her new assignment as the program specialist for the Alpine Area Agency on Aging for the Northwest Colorado Council of Governments (NWCCOG).
A Colorado native and University of Colorado graduate with a degree in English literature, Rens-Moon has spent most of her life around Rangely, Grand County and now Summit County.
She worked as an income maintenance technician for Grand County Social Services, where she determined the eligibility for family benefit programs including Medicaid, LEAP (Low-income Energy Assistance Program) and SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition-Assistance Program).
Rens-Moon also spent time as a medical billing and record clerk, and the billing and finance coordinator for Grand County Public Health, Home Health, Senior Nutrition and Home Care.
She’s said, “I’m excited that my new role will combine a solid foundation in data collection and analysis, as well as direct client assistance. I’m excited to spend some of my days studying spreadsheets and entering data and other days directly helping clients. I can’t wait to start learning!”
She continued, “I’m also hoping that my past experience will give me a good foundational understanding of a few of the referral options we have in our region, and I’m hoping to hit the ground running!”
