Chamber Staff

Kayla Bowers

Executive Director


Kayla was born and raised in the Grand Valley. After graduating from Fruita Monument High School, she continued on to Colorado Mesa University and later completed her Bachelors of Healthcare Administration at Walden University.

She previously worked at the Fruita Chamber as the Marketing and Membership Coordinator and then went on to Family Health West as the Marketing Manager. In March of 2020, she returned to the Fruita Chamber to continue pursuing her dreams of helping the business community. 

She and her husband, Coleman, recently started their own small business Dango Burrito. Together they operate a small family farm and share a love for local agriculture. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family and adventuring in the great outdoors.


Mike Ritter

Marketing & Communications Manager


Mike is a graduate of Colorado Mesa University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications with a minor in Political Science. Mike is from Arvada, Colorado, a suburb of Denver, and moved to the western slope in 2017 to attend CMU.

He fell in love with the uniqueness of western CO and can’t imagine ever moving back to the front range. In his free time, Mike enjoys playing with his dog, an adorable one year old Hound Doodle, watching movies with his brother, and loves to Golf (though his game could use some work). At the Chamber, Mike works hard to promote Chamber events and all the benefits the FACC has to offer. Mike is passionate about our community and is motivated to help make it stronger every day!


Lindsey Brown

Membership & Programs Manager


Lindsey is currently working towards finishing her Accounting degree at Colorado Mesa University. She grew up in Aurora, CO where she was active in her community running craft fairs with her mom and participating in the technical theater.

Lindsey came to the Western Slope to attend Colorado Mesa University and has fallen in love with the Fruita community. When not at work, she can most often be found next to her boyfriend Max, often in a side by side or on their scooters! While at the Chamber, Lindsey is responsible for planning the community events and working to support FACC members! Lindsey is passionate about her community and enjoys having the opportunity to support it.
