PROFILE

Trujillo was born in Denver but raised in Santa Fe. She did not initially finish high school, but in the area of education and perseverance, Trujillo is an inspiration and role model for all. Trujillo is the third oldest of a family of 10 who dropped out of high school at the age of 16, her junior year, when her eldest son, Anthony, was born. Marriage and a total of four sons later, Trujillo acquired her G.E.D. from Front Range Community College. She has worked at the City and County of Denver for a total of 28 years to date, in positions at Denver Health, the Denver Police Department, County Clerk’s Office (with Judge Patterson) Parks and Recreation and currently Human Rights. She also worked with the Department of Energy from 1990-1995. In 2007 Trujillo received an associates degree from Red Rocks Community College and in 2010 received a business degree from Regis University. Trujillo’s husband, Greg Martinez, passed away in 2010. Her sons include Anthony, Michael, Lawrence and Mark. Trujillo volunteers during weekends at events that target the aging community and visits the aging at nursing facilities on a regular basis. She also spends time with seven grandchildren and enjoys golfing.

ABOUT DENVER OFFICE ON AGING

The Denver Office on Aging is a department that concentrates on the needs of Denver’s aging community. Trujillo’s philosophy is that of one-on-one with the elderly in the community. She listens to their story and tries to find a resolution. She adds, “Isolation is a top concern in this community, with the elderly living alone, who have no children, or their children are estranged or are living out of state.”

HIGH SCHOOL EXPERIENCE

“The happiest times of my life were in high school. I made good grades and was involved. Sheridan High School offered a very diverse student enrollment.”

MESSAGE TO YOUTH

“Getting good jobs and good money is a result of a good education. An education is a lifetime gift, something you keep forever. Everything will fall into place after that.”

LAST WORD

“You need to believe in something greater than yourself. My faith in God has kept me going during the darkest times of my life. My sons and family are everything to me.”
