Justin Wells like many in our industry, started his life in aquatics as a lifeguard and swim instructor for his hometown. While earning his bachelors in Recreation, Tourism, and Hospitality at the University of Northern Colorado, he worked his way from a part time employee, to full time as an Aquatics Coordinator, and then on to Recreation Supervisor overseeing aquatics, youth sports, and fitness. He went westward for a few years, and took a job as a supervisor for Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs, Co where he oversaw aquatics and maintenance operations. Today he is excited to be part of the inaugural team of Berthoud Recreation where the state of the art full service recreation center is nearing the end of construction. Wells is an Instructor Trainer and has trained, recruited, and managed aquatics staff for a variety of facilities. Just has been in a position of leadership with the Colorado Parks and Recreation Association for two years and enjoys officiating swimming and diving for Colorado High School Athletics.
