Debbie and her husband, Mark Westlund, have lived in their present home in UPark since 2006. However, they have been property owners and residents in UPark since 1972. They have four grown children, one of whom also lives in UPark, and four grandchildren. Debbie works as a part-time Office Manager at Jon D. Williams Cotillions, a company that trains children through adults in social skills education. For Debbie, it was the rezoning application for 2400 S University that prompted her involvement in the neighborhood. Debbie’s work life has included fraud and risk analysis consulting and various roles in business management. She has served on several non-profit boards, most recently for a conference and retreat center affiliated with her church which is located in the Black Forest area. Debbie enjoys reading, bridge, gardening, and is an active member of First Plymouth Church.

Megan Bettinger, Secretary

Megan and her husband, James, have lived in University Park since 2004. They purchased their home from James’ parents, who lived there since the mid-1960s. They have three children, 2 attend University Park Elementary and 1 attends Merrill Middle School. Megan lived briefly in Denver as a child (her father and grandparents are Colorado natives) and moved back after college. She became involved in the UPCC after James served as Traffic and Transportation Chair. Megan works at the Denver Mart and enjoys volunteering at her children’s schools and other organizations and events.

CO-Treasurers, June Morgan and Ryan Zorn

June Morgan

Longer ago than she can remember, June Morgan was elected Co-Treasurer of UPCC with her late husband, Joe, owner of Morgan’s Pharmacy, at Evans and South Downing. June had moved to Denver in 1958. She and her then-husband, and children lived on South St. Paul Street, next door to Joe and his family. After both June and Joe lost their spouses, Joe asked June out for ice cream. They were married in 1972 and moved their large family to South Monroe Street.

June is a watercolorist, gardener, and frequent hostess, opening her home to her monthly art groups, as well as the regular UPCC Board meetings. She has 10 grandchildren and six great grandchildren, and weekly family dinners, cooked by June, will include two to 10 people around the table.

Upon graduation from Colorado School of Mines in 1996, he spent 13 years working in Houston and New York in various investment banking and fund management roles each focused on the oil and gas sector.
