She, along with her husband, two grown children, and their dogs, lives a Colorado lifestyle with an emphasis on participating in outdoor activities such as hiking and skiing as well as more contemplative hobbies including knitting, reading, yoga, and music appreciation.
Three words that Carla uses to describe her orientation to life and to her business:
I believe in practicing love. It is my way to try to improve the lives and lifestyles of everyone in my world.
A significant part of my life mission is to be authentic with myself and others. It is a matter of integrity to me that I commit myself in my interactions to help people reach their potential and find their joy. Coming alongside others in a compassionate way enriches my life immeasurably.
A lyric from a song by Jewel says: "In the end, only kindness matters." I believe this idea to be true and it is having and expressing kindness that forms the basis of my worldview and how I live.

Jill Fredrickson, Co-owner of The Hive, enjoys her work because it gives her daily opportunities to practice having a positive attitude and gratitude for many blessings.

Three words Jill uses to describe her orientation to life and to her business:
I am a curious learner and find great meaning in listening to and observing what others teach me every day. I try to set up opportunities for people to feel special, safe, and part of meaningful communities.
It is good to be different, I think, and I appreciate people of difference. Isn’t that everyone? I marvel at how interconnected we all are.
Giving and receiving respect is important to me. I am a reliable, skilled problem solver who is good at handling details and treating others with respect. I feel honored by the way people interact with me.
Judy Teeter | Queen Bee
Judy Teeter, The Hive’s Queen Bee, is on her third attempt at retirement. Her extroverted personality drives her desire to be connected to people and places.
Judy loves being involved in connecting people to community; building relationships; and she is always ready for a new adventure. She adds a spark of energy as she meets and greets those coming into The Hive.
Three words that Judy uses to describe her orientation to life and to The Hive:
If people would love each other more as human beings, then that would set a ground rule for how we treat each other. You can’t love and hate in the same breath. This is a powerful thought for me.
This core value has to do with truthfulness and trust, both qualities that are essential to how I live my life. I treat others this way and I expect other to treat me this way as well.
I give it even when I don’t get it. It’s that important to me. I continually work on being the best role model I can be in this regard.
