Mari Sparkjoy
President, Sparkjoy Foundation

Growing up in a family that regularly lived on the edge, Mari Sparkjoy developed an intense desire to make a difference in the world. She earned a Bachelor's of Fine Arts at the University of Colorado after her children were born, and that creative spirit has allowed her to walk a path of unconventional success.

Mari's unique view of the world allowed her to embrace a rebellion of the status quo. This eccentric vision has permitted her belief that kindness, even in the smallest amounts, can change the world. In 2010 she married Keith (who also serves on our Board of Trustees), the love of her life, and in 2014 they started the Sparkjoy Foundation, where she serves as President. She believes that together she and Keith can spark joy every day.
