Katie Kramer
President & CEO, Boettcher Foundation • CFL Board Vice Chair

As president and CEO, Kramer has come full circle with the Boettcher Foundation. She was selected as a Boettcher Scholar in 1993 and has been at the foundation in various roles since 1997. These include serving as the director of the scholarship program and vice president, a title she assumed at the age of 26.

Kramer has been recognized as one of the Denver Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” and the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce’s “Top 25 Most Powerful Women.”

A fourth-generation Colorado native, Kramer attended the University of Colorado Boulder, where she was a Presidents Leadership Scholar and honors graduate at the Leeds School of Business. In 2009, she completed her executive MBA at the University of Denver’s Daniels College of Business.

Kramer has served extensively in the community on local and national boards and is widely regarded as a national expert in scholarship selection processes. Recently, Kramer and her colleague wrote and published All the Wisdom and None of the Junk: Secrets of Applying for College Admission and Scholarships in an effort to demystify the scholarship selection process and help the next generation apply for college and scholarships.

Kramer is a harmonica-playing, trout-catching, Star Wars-watching, country-dancing, scuba-diving, elk-hunting, Grand Canyon-rafting, mountain-hiking, family-loving, outdoor enthusiast. She lives in Arvada with her husband and two young sons.
