Heuga Center names Canepa vice president
Paula Canepa, a Minturn resident, has been named vice president of finance for The Heuga Center, a national nonprofit organization based in Edwards that works with people and families living with multiple sclerosis.
Canepa hails from Maine originally, and has lived in the Vail Valley since 1986. She has owned her own business and, most recently, worked for four years as the business manager for Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival.
She lives in Minturn with husband Brian, and daughter, Ali, a junior at Battle Mountain High School. Her son, Scott, a Battle Mountain High School graduate, is a freshman at Chapman College in California.
“Paula brings an understanding and knowledge of the valley, as well as extensive experience in finance,” said Heuga Center President, Brian Hutchinson. “Paula’s creativity and innovative financial ideas will be a great asset as The Heuga Center strives to diversify its funding and expand our foundation of support, both within Colorado and throughout the nation.”
This year, The Heuga Center – founded by Olympic skiing bronze medalist Jimmie Heuga – celebrates its 20th year of promoting health for people and families living with MS. The center’s flagship CAN DO Program will be hosted by the Lodge at Vail, May 19 through 23.
Twenty-five participants and their support partners will spend five days with 45 top MS experts from around the country, receiving 45 hours of individual consultation, exercise workshops and classroom seminars.
