Carrie Fehringer brings a passion for sports and more than two decades of Senior Games experience to the national staff from her native Colorado. Fehringer, who holds two degrees, played volleyball in college and minored in physical education with an emphasis on coaching. After graduating from the University of Northern Colorado in 1997, she landed a job as a recreation coordinator with the City of Greeley Senior Activity Center. One of her major responsibilities was organizing and coordinating the Rocky Mountain Senior Games held annually in Greeley.
In addition to 20 years working with State Games, Fehringer also joined NSGA staff at The National Senior Games in both 2015 and 2017, which gave her valuable insight into the special needs and pressures of staging major events. “Senior Games was the best part of my job in Colorado, and I’m excited to be able to work with athletes and partners at the national level,” Fehringer says.
