Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is pleased to announce that Gina Tincher, a staff attorney in its Denver office, has been named chair of Rise Above Colorado’s board of directors. Rise Above Colorado is a drug abuse prevention organization that measurably impacts teen perceptions and attitudes about the risks of substance abuse to help youth make empowered, healthy choices.
Tincher has been involved with Rise Above Colorado for years, having served on its board since 2016. Her background in law enforcement and narcotics investigations as well as her work as a litigator give her a unique perspective on ways to address teen drug abuse across the state.
“I am incredibly excited for the opportunity to lead Rise Above for the next three years," said Tincher. "We are in a critical moment in Colorado: from rising rates of opioid misuse in teens to vaping, there has never been a greater need for an organization like Rise Above that uses evidence-based approaches to combat teen substance misuse.”
