Randy Barber - Chief Communications Officer | 303.387.0128

I have been with Douglas County School District since April 2011 and am responsible for leading our communication and community relations efforts, which reach 67,000 students, their parents and our 7,500 employees. Prior to coming to education I worked at 9NEWS for 13 years and have brought that passion for news and storytelling to the District. My favorite part of working here is telling the stories of our amazing students and staff.

I am a proud Colorado native, Rangeview Raider, CU Buff and DCSD parent.

Kathy Brown - School/Community Partnership Coordinator | 303.387.9505

I have been with the Douglas County School District as the Parent and Community Liaison since 2014. My aim has been to increase parent and community partnerships and investment in schools in order ensure students are successful and thriving throughout their academic careers.

Prior to this current role, I worked in communications, policy and advocacy in the nonprofit sector, with a focus on children and the prevention of violence against women. I have two children in the Douglas County School system and I am a graduate of the University of Nebraska and have a Masters Degree in Public Administration from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Andrea Carlson - Communications Coordinator | 303.387.0033

As a Communications Coordinator, I have the awesome job of working directly with all 86 of our great schools.  A majority of my job is spent helping our principals with crisis communication to our staff, parents and community. I also work hard to help share our good news stories from inside our schools to the community and members of the media.

I am a Colorado native and actually grew up attending elementary, middle and high school right here in Douglas County. I am a CU grad and have a background in broadcast news.

Chris Cheline - Multimedia Producer | 720.454.2699

I have the privilege of telling the inspiring and unique stories that are all around here in the schools of Douglas County. I am a career storyteller since 2001. I previously was a Photojournalist at 9News, Fox31, 7News, and KRDO. I absolutely love finding fun ways to tell a new story.

This district is important to me because it’s also my home. I have a wife and three young boys. They are all students or attending preschool in Douglas County. When I’m not working a camera or immersed in editing you’ll find me playing bass at church or in a rock band, clanking shots on the basketball court, or cheering on my Broncos and Nuggets - and justifying a good run-on sentence.

Paula Hans - Public Information Officer | 303.387.0031

With 20+ years of combined experience in media relations, public relations, marketing and broadcast television, I am thrilled to be part of the Douglas County School District team. Not only do I work and live in Douglas County, I am also a proud DCSD parent!

Prior to joining the Douglas County School District, I spent time managing media relations for another Colorado school district. My career began in television news, with stops at 7News and FOX-31 News here in Colorado. I also spent time at a number of additional television stations in other states as a reporter, anchor and producer.

I earned my degree from the University of Nebraska - go Huskers!

Nate Jones - Creative Services Media Production Specialist | 303.387.0126

I was fortunate enough to be able to relocate my family back to my beautiful home state of Colorado after an amazing nine-year stint in the U.S. Army. During my nine years in uniform, I had the privilege of telling the stories of men and women serving our country in Germany, Texas, Iraq, and the National Capitol Region through photographs and video.

As DCSD’s Multimedia Producer, I have the same privilege of telling the stories, through photographs and video, of our community of hard working teachers, innovative district leaders, and a stellar group of intelligent students.  I knew from my first visit to a DCSD classroom that the stories I would find here would keep me engaged and loving what I do for years to come. I’m looking forward to help tell your story!

Jan Reagan - Graphic Designer | 303.387.0255

As Lead Graphic Designer and Brand Manager it is my pleasure to provide artistic direction, message discipline, brand consistency and marketing support for the District. 

After attending the University of Colorado, Boulder and graduating from the Colorado Institute of Art, Denver, I ran Shaeffer Reagan Design, a full service graphic design firm, for 30 years. 

As a proud DCSD parent of three, and volunteer for 17 years, I joined the DCSD Community Relations team shortly after my youngest child graduated from Rock Canyon High School. I continue to be exceptionally grateful to be part of the DCSD Community.

Chris Silberman - Digital Marketing Specialist | 303.387.0162

I joined the DCSD Community Relations team in September 2015. In my role, I keep DCSD employees and families up to date with the latest news coming from the District and our schools. This includes news story coverage and serving as editor of the District E-newsletter distributed to families (Newsline), as well as the employee E-newsletter (THINK). Additionally, I manage DCSD’s social media channels, help maintain the DCSD website and train other DCSD employees on how to update their respective web pages.

I am a graduate of the University of Colorado at Denver. Prior to joining DCSD, I worked in the Colorado nonprofit sector for 16 years, most recently including Phamaly Theatre Company, where I served as Executive Director for five years.
