Cornelia Carpenter

Administrative & Development Assistant

Cornelia was raised in Aspen and is happy to be home after attending the University of Denver, where she earned Bachelor degrees in both Geography and Studio Art. Since graduation, she has illustrated several children’s books and maps, and continues to draw and paint in her favorite medium, watercolor. Cornelia was a Development intern at The Aspen Institute in the summer of 2011 and returned to assist with major events at the Institute in the summer of 2012. During the winter season, she can be found cross-country skiing and working in her studio.

Aspen Public Radio has been an integral part of Cornelia’s life – from waking up to Morning Edition and local news in the valley to cooking dinner while tuned into Fresh Air. She enjoys listening to Car Talk, Science Friday, Wait, Wait...Don’t Tell Me, and too many others to count. Cornelia’s other interests include traveling, hiking, exploring the Wild West, and hanging out with exotic animals. Some of her memorable animal interactions include kissing a giraffe, holding a flying fox bat, and getting stung by a stingray.
