Mindy Sink first moved to Denver right after high school, and though she later relocated to another state, she missed Colorado so much that she decided to return. Having experienced the city both as a single and a married woman, Mindy is now seeing Denver with fresh eyes as a parent. While she once roamed the Denver Art Museum for hours, she now makes art with her daughter on family-friendly outings. As a resident for more than a decade, Mindy firmly believes Denver has something for everyone.

Mindy wrote about Denver and the greater Rocky Mountain region for The New York Times for more than 10 years. Her work has also appeared in Sunset Magazine, The Christian Science Monitor, and other well-known publications. She is the author of Walking Denver and a co-author of Colorado Organic: Cooking Seasonally, Eating Locally.

Mindy lives in the Highlands neighborhood with her husband, Mike, and their daughter, Sophie.
