Meet Mary Hoftiezer, Volunteer for 2023 President-Elect

Mary, what kind of talent development work do you do?

I completed my master’s degree in Learning Design Technology at CU Denver last spring and have since transitioned to contract work through Evolution Learning Design Group, LLC.  I work to create engaging, people-centered learning that helps businesses meet their learning needs.


How have you benefited from being an ATD Rocky Mountain Chapter member? And what motivated you to volunteer for the President-Elect role for next year?

I started my Instructional Design journey in 2019, while I was still working in public education.  Being a lifelong learner, I explored opportunities to utilize my educational background and teaching skillset in another, related field.  I came across Rocky Mountain ATD chapter in the process.  I knew that getting involved with a professional organization would be a way to learn more about the industry and network with other professionals.  I have learned, connected, and grown professionally and personally through the chapter.

I am volunteering as President-Elect in 2023 to give back to the chapter that has helped me.  I also believe that this is an opportunity to continue to promote the many benefits of ATD and to work with a fantastic team of board members and members.  I also strive to continue to provide value to our members. 


Are you willing to share a fun fact about yourself?

I am a Colorado native.  I am also an avid endurance athlete and have completed hundreds of triathlons.  When I am not engaged in helping the world work better, I enjoy swimming, biking, running, and being outdoors.
