Hunter King, BA

Family Care Coordinator

Born and raised in historic Durango, Hunter grew up enjoying the mountains. Whether hunting, fishing, camping, playing sports, or running around in the yard, the outdoors always brought a smile to her face.

Hunter became the first in her family to graduate from college, earning a BA in Psychology and Sociology from Fort Lewis College in just three years. She gained basic counseling skills, allowing her to counsel struggling college freshmen and local at-risk youth. This experience ignited her passion and deepened her desire to work with people.

Since joining the Open Sky team in early 2016, Hunter has been a part of our Administrative team providing assistance to the Clinical and Family Services department. As Family Care Coordinator, Hunter provides support to families during their transitional journey. She is a welcoming resource for any needs a family may have during their child’s time at Open Sky.

Outside of work, Hunter spends her free time volunteering as a youth mentor, crafting artwork, snowboarding, paddle boarding, hiking with her dogs, and enjoying all that Colorado has to offer. She enjoys being surrounded by the great outdoors, close friends, a loving family, and a vibrant, welcoming community.
