Our Team

We are not a team because we work together. We are a team because we respect, trust and care for one another.

Veronica Dieda

Executive Director

“Change is growth for the soul; at least this is how I have felt the last few years. Having lived  singularly focused on my job, I decided that life was in motion but I was not, and I was the only one who could correct this.  This is the truth that brought me to Colorado, allowed me to meet my now husband, re-enter academia and grow as a person.  I have embraced Colorado as my home and enjoy discovering its beauty with my golden retriever, Tanner.  My passion for travel has been greatly ignited since meeting my husband and I have been very blessed to see some amazing places. (Tanner usually has to stay behind because he gets motion sickness).  In the future I hope to continue seeing the world and embracing changes as they happen.”

Program Coordinator

“Sometimes what you’re most afraid of doing is the very thing that will set you free.” I came to People House along a journey to find my path and purpose. With the guidance and empathy from various People House people I found the courage to follow my calling. I split my time between People House and pursuing my degree in couple and family therapy at the University of Colorado, Denver. My free time is spent with my partner, our sassy cat,  and three little rescue dogs. I am honored to be a part of People House and find that, even after five years here, I continue to learn and grow. 

Samantha Oberhausen

Administrative Assistant

I came to People House because it felt like a place where my work would be in service of something meaningful. After working in childcare for several years, I wanted a new challenge that would still allow me to help serve my community. I grew up in Denver and after attending Willamette University in Salem, Oregon, I returned to Colorado. I enjoy spending time with my friends and boyfriend. Some of our hobbies include bowling, hiking, and paddle boarding. We have a cat named Pokey who is almost as grumpy as she is fluffy. I am so glad to have found a new home at People House and I look forward to my future here.




The purpose of People House is to create a space and atmosphere where everyone is accepted for who and what they are at this moment...

and to enhance the possibilities of who and what they might become should they choose to expand their spiritual awareness.
