“Her demonstrated leadership in a multitude of challenging assignments and her ability to mentor, develop, and engage with staff at all levels is impressive,” said Loveland City Manager Steve Adams. “I know our City will benefit from her expertise serving as city clerk, but we will also benefit from her strong integrity, commitment to transparency, as well as her kindness and customer-centric approach to service.”

My goal has always been to do this in a way where people feel welcomed, respected, and receive exceptional service,” said Coldiron. “I have a passion for this work and so enjoy serving the communities where people make their lives.”
In addition to her city clerk role, Coldiron brings a proven track record of building and maintaining highly effective teams and programs that ensure alignment with City Council and executive leadership goals and objectives.
