Teran Nash is a native of Los Angeles, California whose job brought her to Denver in March 1978. She now calls Denver home. Teran grew up listening to jazz even before she knew or understood what it was. Her father was an avid lover and follower who filled the house with artists such as Miles Davis, Chico Hamilton, Ramsey Lewis, Sarah Vaughan and other greats.
Along with her real estate career, she has worked for 2 nonprofits in the city, National Stroke Association and Full Circle Intergenerational Project. She started as a volunteer with Full Circle and was then hired as a program coordinator. Teran has volunteered for many organizations in Denver such as Rocky Mountain Food Bank, Park Hill Sertoma Club, different political candidates she supported, as well as working with organizations through church and the community. During her years living in Montbello, she was the Volunteer Neighborhood Watch Coordinator for that community.
“I started listening to KUVO off and on in the early years when it started in 1984. I became an avid listener at the turn of the millennium. Then I finally decided to join as a listener member because it just made since. While renewing my pledge, I inquired about being a volunteer. I was directed to the volunteer coordinator and got started right away. I just fell in love with what it’s all about, helping to build a community of listeners that all hold a stake in this company and enjoys the diversity of jazz offered by KUVO.”
