My name is Jordan Spight and I look forward to becoming a Rotary member and the opportunity it gives to be more involved in the community. I was born and raised in Fort Collins and am a third generation Fort Collins native. Upon graduating from Fort Collins High School, I attended Colorado State University where I earned a bachelor's degree. After college I spent 15 years as a firefighter with Windsor Severance Fire Rescue, during which time I met my wife Molly (also a Ft. Collins native), moved to Windsor and had our first child.

A little about myself

I was born and raised on a farm in southern Indiana.  Obtained B.S. and M.S. at Murray State University in southwestern Kentucky and PhD from the University of Tennessee in Plant Breeding and Genetics.  Post Doc’ed at the University of Nebraska and then moved to Fort Collins in 1986 to work at CSU on a United States Agency for International Development (USAID) grant entitled ‘Tissue Culture for Crop’.  This international project was to use new technologies to develop environmental stress tolerance in several relevant international crops such as rice, sorghum, and millet.  As that grant ended in 1989, I was able to get a position with Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis working on rice and later barley.  I moved back to Fort Collins in 2007 to manage a global malt barley breeding program.  At its height there was staff of 60 in 10 countries and conducting research trials in 17 countries.  The program was also able to do experiments on the International Space Station.  I was divorced in 2014 and have 2 children, both of whom live in Fort Collins. I retired at the end of January 2020 and now spend a week or so a month in Indiana helping my dad.

I liked reading and reciting the Four-Way Test of the Rotarian values. It’s refreshing to speak to the values each week.  
I retired at the end of October of this year after nearly 43 years as a State Farm Insurance Agent. The best part of my years as an agent was the relationships developed with so many individuals.  I miss that even today.
It might have appeared to my wife (Alli), my three sons (Blake, Jeff and Rob) and their wives, their 10 kids (my grandkids), their wives and 3 great grandkids that I have been retired for several years.  Not true. The heaviness of responsibility of owning a business never ceases.  I’m now retired and I can breath.
My name is Curran Dunne, I am 23 years old. I currently work in the HVAC industry for Swan heating and cooling, a local company out of Loveland. Grew up in Beorne Tx and was raised by my father David Dunne and mother Lisa Dunne. I have currently one younger sibling Kiera Dunne. When I was 18 years old I went out and worked on a cod boat in Alaska. We sailed the bearing sea for 55 days straight(18hr on 6hrs off). I feel like this helped shaped me into the young man I am today. It tested my emotional and physical limits every day I was out on that boat. Recently moved to Colorado about three years ago, lived up in Estes for a year and a half before moving down the mountain.
My name is Tiana and I have been living in Fort Collins off and on since 2009.  I currently  live with my husband Brent and our two kitties , Yoda and  Fluffy. I am a Registered Dietitian and I have a private practice called Tiana Sexton Nutrition where I specialize in helping  individuals with  digestive  disorders. I also work as a clinical dietitian at the three Banner hospitals located in Northern Colorado. In my free time I enjoy gardening and being outdoors ( hiking, camping, paddle boarding and skiing).
I came to Fort Collins to study Microbiology in 2000, fell in love with the community, and never left. I am married to my wife, Tasha, and we have four small children. My brother and I started our own real estate brokerage a few years ago: Urban Forest Realty. I enjoy trail running and mountain biking. We could not be happier living in Fort Collins.
I am originally from Mill Valley, California. I moved to Boulder, CO in August of 2014 to complete my undergraduate degree in psychology (minoring in religious studies) at Naropa University. I graduated in 2017. In May of 2019, I applied for an entry-level job at Colorado Parks & Wildlife as a gate attendant at Eldorado Canyon State Park in Boulder County. I wanted to take a job where I could be outside very day and be of service to my state and my community. Within two months, I received a promotion to park ranger trainee staying in that position until 2021.
My name is Martha Apuan.  I am married to Gene Apuan and we have 3 children and 5 grandchildren.  I was born in El Paso, TX and I lived there until I was 21.  We have lived in Texas, Wyoming, Nevada, California, Idaho, Colorado and Japan.  We spent 2 years as missionaries in Japan from 2018-2020.  We enjoyed our time in Japan learning about the culture, traditions and the people.  My primary ministry became teaching English to preschoolers, elementary kids, and adults.  I always dreamed of being a teacher, so I was able to fulfill my dream.
