Saltzman is likely to be found most mornings hiking in the Colorado Springs foothills with her two dogs, Nacho and Macy. She enjoys reading, taking pictures, listening to James Taylor songs, keeping in touch with friends, visiting family, and laughing with her husband of two years. Dr. Saltzman holds a Ph.D. in education from the University of Denver, was recognized as Colorado's National Distinguished Principal and received the American Cancer Society's Sword of Hope during her 32 year career as a teacher and administrator. She is the author of the best selling memoir, Radical Survivor, and is a much sought after inspirational speaker about love after loss and resilience.
