Ms. Lenart is Director of Human Resources at Spark Policy Institute where she supports the Spark team in maintaining and enhancing a creative and enriching work environment.

Before joining the Spark team, Adell worked in health care, primarily with people and groups affected by chronic and life-limiting illnesses. This experience offered an opportunity to learn about resilience, gratitude, and the value of mutual support — qualities integral to and applicable within the workplace. She has over 25 years of experience working with and coaching interdisciplinary teams and developing strategies that enhance individual and organizational well being.
Outside of work, Adell enjoys exploring Denver, hiking, glass work, games and spending time with family and friends.
Adell received her BA in English from Carleton University and her MSW from Columbia University.
