Kathi Meyer - District II

Kathi Meyer first served on City Council in 2015 (At-Large) before being reelected in November 2017 to the four-year District II seat.  Prior to her work on council, she served two terms on the Steamboat Springs Planning Commission.  For the past 15 years, she has been an active member of joint City/County Area Plan Coordinating Committee.

Meyer was born in Evanston, Illinois, and raised in the Chicago area (which is why she’s a reluctant Bears/Cub fan). After graduating college, Meyer moved to Denver, Colorado, to start her professional career, where she spent 25 years in the banking and financial management field working for employers such as Colorado National Bank (US Bank), GE Capital, and Southern California Savings. Kathi and her husband, Jim Peterson, moved to Steamboat Springs in 1998.

She is also the President of the Board of the Yampa Valley Housing Authority, having been on that board since its inception in 2004. Meyer served as Treasurer and President of the Regional Affordable Living Foundation; volunteered with the Yampa Valley Medical Center, was a Colorado State Trustee for the Leukemia Society of America and the past president of Routt County Habitat for Humanity. She was the founding member and first president of the North Suburban Business and Professional Women’s Club of Denver.

Kathi share a passion for winter sports serving on numerous organizing committees for Nordic Combined World Cup, National Championship and Continental Cup events in Steamboat Springs. During the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake, Meyer served as an FIS Official/Nordic Combined.
