Colony grew up as an Army brat living in five different places, including Germany, before starting high school in the DC area. Having an unconventional first name was her first lesson in branding and she has spent her career messaging and packaging ever since (it’s a family name, by the way). It’s no surprise that Colony has made relationship building a priority in her life. With a head for headlines and a heart for helping, she started her career at a nonprofit promoting diversity in television newsrooms. From there she joined the dotcom boom at technology startup, Cvent and then spent more than a decade marketing a top DC law firm. Since 2013, Colony reconnected with her nonprofit roots and has made ZERO her home.
Whether at CrossFit, the coffee shop, a dog park, or her favorite local Tex Mex hangout, Colony is likely to be rallying her community behind the fight to end prostate cancer. Inspired to create a future for her three kids that eliminates the pain and suffering from prostate cancer, she proudly embraces the nickname given by neighbors as the Prostate Lady.
