Mindy was raised in Princeton, Kentucky, before attending Union University in Jackson, Tennessee, where she received a B.S. in learning foundations. After a time teaching elementary school in Brownsville, Tennessee, she spent several years with
Automatic Data Processing in benefits administration. Mindy returned to early childhood education in 2014 and worked with Riverside Church to develop their early learning center and lead their childcare licensing process.
Mindy and her husband, Jason, have been married for 18 years and have one son, Jonathan, in seventh grade. The Denver area has been their home since 2011. Mindy enjoys coffee, gardening, baking and cooking, but—in typical extroverted fashion—would much rather enjoy these with a friend. The Tipton family loves to spend time reading, camping, skiing, playing board games, telling stories and exploring. More than anything they seek to reflect the gospel of Jesus Christ.
