Lisa Potter
​Member at Large


Lisa has been a member of Colorado Jeep Girls since October of 2016. She is a Colorado Native and has been Off-roading since she was a teenager. She loves being out on the trails and she also enjoys riding along with others to help them gain off-roading experience and knowledge. Lisa has had several Jeeps in the past, then switched to a Toyota rock crawler for a few years, but she came back to Jeeps! Lisa currently has a ’05 TJ and a ’12 JKU Call of Duty and would love to get my hands on an old Willy’s truck someday. She also volunteers or supports a lot of other groups – such as Wheelers for The Wounded of Colorado (supporting Veterans); EPIC 4x4 Quest; Stay The Trail, Tread Lightly; Set Them Free; NFS – Trail cleanups. If you are looking for a Club to join, she would highly recommend this fantastic group of women.

She has been offroading most of her life with her family, and even learned how to drive a manual in an old International Scout on an old trail. She lives in Evergreen, and is the mother of two future Jeep girls who are just as active with the club and enjoy camping and wheeling as much as their mom. Catherine is a supervisor at a local hotel, as well as the owner of Jeep Life Designs, a Colorado Jeep Girls sponsor. Catherine volunteers with Colorado 4x4 Rescue and Recovery in her spare time, and is part of several different offroading groups.

Katie Thorne
Secretary, Northern Colorado Chapter Lead


Katie was born and raised in Arkansas. She moved to Colorado 12 years ago. She grew up with a love for the outdoors and loved finding places to explore with her horse or her dirt bike. High Jinx is her first jeep. She's a 2015 JKU. Katie couldn't wait to get out in the Colorado backwoods with her! Katie joined CJG a couple years ago to learn about her Jeep and the off-road community. To her, it has been the best experience and most enjoyable group! She says she has learned so much and grown as an off-road enthusiast!

To preserve, protect and help with upkeep of our trails and public lands, while creating an environment for women to feel welcome regardless of their skill level on the trail.
