The Denver Delivery Network is the brainchild of David Millis and Robbie Hobein, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They live in one of the oldest neighborhoods of Denver, and enjoy both the history and the people.
Robbie was a middle-school band & orchestra teacher for many years, before getting an Executive MBA from the University of Denver, then pivoting into tech. She currently works for Kaiser Permanente.
David has been in the tech industry for his entire career, including several startups. He also helped start, and live in, an urban community in Denver. He is currently a Staff Architect at Splunk, a data analytics software company.
Robbie and David complement each other’s skills in the Denver Delivery Network: David focuses on process and technology, while Robbie coordinates the ever-increasing number of volunteers helping clients. Like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire — except without high heels.
The Denver Delivery Network is a registered nonprofit corporation in Colorado.
