Meet Chris Starkey, Our New Partner! 

Meet Chris Starkey, our new partner!

Opportunities! This one word sums up why Amy and I asked Chris to join our team. Opportunities - for our students, our families, our communities, and our team. 

Amy and I have known Chris for over 20 years. Among his many credits, Chris is the “Chief Mojo Maker” and founder/president of Imprint Group, a global entertainment and event production company based in Denver. 

Having Chris on our team provides our students with access to his vast arts and entertainment experience, resources, and network. We foresee opportunities to engage our students in upcoming events and musical and theatrical productions.

Just this month, Pickering Creative has provided soundtracks for a 30 piece Gospel Choir/John Legend tribute artist event at the Gaylord, a 60’s Aquarius flash mob event in Aspen, a Beatles tribute, Top Three Thursday Podcast original music production, and much more in the months ahead.

Meet Anjee!

It is with absolute delight that I am introducing to you our first Pickering Creative Artists Academy employee - Anjee Wren!

Hi! I'm Anjee! I was born and raised in Southern California and moved to Colorado in 2005. My husband David and I were married in 1999 and we have 2 children, our 17 year old daughter, Jillian and our 9 year old son, Eliott. We also have 2 dogs, Sugar and Zipper, a guinea pig and a handful of fish! My background is in Early Childhood Education and I am currently a Preschool Teacher at Hope Preschool. I love to teach and see kids learn and grow. My family enjoys road trips to California, fire pits in the backyard, music and video games. I love all things that are crafty, Mexican food, and a Coca Cola....and lets not forget the beautiful ocean! I am SO excited to join the team here at Pickering Academy! I can't wait to meet you!

Anjee is my part-time Executive Administrative Assistant and will become a central point of contact for Pickering Academy. I hired Anjee to ensure that as we continue to grow, so will the personal service we provide to our students, families, and community. I invite you to send Anjee a note welcoming her to our ever-expanding tribe. I know you'll fall in love with Anjee as you have the opportunity to connect with her. Anjee's email is
