A.A. Early Childhood Education, Arapaho Community College
Certified Doula/Birth Coach and Childbirth Educator
Raneta has centered her life around kids and learning since she can remember. After studying early childhood education, she worked as a Pre-K teacher, summer camp instructor in the Rocky Mountains and as a nanny. Raneta believes education should be fun, engaging, active, and personal. She spent years promoting to the Colorado legislature as a community organizer. After moving to Minneapolis, Minnesota, she became actively involved with the Hugh O’Brien Youth Leadership program, or HOBY, focused on developing leadership skills, critical thinking, and service in high school students. Raneta served in various roles, including Board Secretary and Director of Enrollment, growing the program from 75 students to 125. As she started having children of her own, Raneta shifted her attention to childbirth, becoming a certified Bradley Method childbirth instructor and doula, as well as a leader for the La Leche League in Northern Colorado. Now that her children are older, she is excited to return to education in her role at TVCS, managing enrichment programs and using the organizational skills honed by getting her four children to all their various activities to keep the TVCS office running smoothly. Outside of TVCS, Raneta is still running her kids to gymnastics, swimming, skiing, rock climbing, painting lessons, etc., and loves to join her family out in nature, exploring the mountains together in every season.
