The Crestone Eagle is a nonprofit monthly newspaper serving Crestone and the San Luis Valley

Jennifer Eytcheson named Business & Operations Manager of the Eagle

Crestone Eagle Community Media (CECM) is pleased to announce that Jennifer Eytcheson is returning to the Eagle and has been named the Business & Operations Manager. She will lead the direction of the paper going forward, oversee operations, systems and technology, and manage staff.

Eytcheson was the Eagle’s advertising manager for five years, and is excited to return to what she calls her “happy place.” She will work closely with the CECM board to ensure the paper’s continued success and expansion.

“I’m really passionate about getting the operations and sys- tems of the Eagle back in place, and I’m very excited to take things to a new level,” she said.

Now that the paper is a non-profit, Eytcheson plans to explore new funding opportunities, including memberships, grants, and corporate sponsorships.

“There are so many new ideas to explore while respecting the paper’s foundation and legacy from Kizzen and Janet,” she said.

Eytcheson recently created Crestone Means Business with her partner Lori Nagel and plans to continue running it on the side. She has also taken up playing the keyboard, which she calls, “an excellent stress reliever.”

Eytcheson was a corporate trainer and instructional designer for more than 20 years before ar- riving in Crestone. She grew up in San Antonio, Texas, and went to school at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, studying English Literature. She is a world traveler and has also lived in Los Angeles and Austin, Texas.
