Jo Dorman has achieved many goals in her accounting, finance and public service career. She continues to strive and add to her professionalism and knowledge to help benefit students seeking higher education. 

Dorman currently is working to earn a PhD in business with a focus on accounting. Her goal is to continue to learn more effective ways to teach. She believes that it's important to staying open-minded and realize you can always learn something new, from co-workers, students or a random person. To summarize, Alvin Toffler, author of the classic Future Shock, said: "The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn". With this Dorman will examine her philosophies as learning continues to become more diverse and varied.

Dorman continues to support her community and has served on the Board of Trustees and as mayor pro tem for the Town of Collbran. She currently serves as the education and administrative manager and coordinator for the De Beque Plateau Valley Conservation District. She is the director of Western Co-Cure, a nonprofit that helps families with incarcerated loved ones to navigate the DOC. She also volunteers as a Girls on the Run coach and middle/high school cheer program coach.
