At a little over 5 feet, Malini Bartels stands taller than some children and is louder than most house pets. This highly energetic mother of 2 has been living in Fort Collins for 11+ years and thoroughly enjoys the community feel and exciting arts scene.
Born and raised in the Great Plains of Oklahoma, Malini got her start in local radio and television in the mid 80′s. While Majoring in Mechanical Engineering at university (like a good Indian girl) Malini continued her development in dance, piano, flute, acting, creative writing, and as a disc jockey. She occasionally hosts Live@Lunch on KRFC, performs with local theatre companies, and teaches cooking classes around town. Malini also has a passion for non-profits and oddly believes that volunteering is one of the most awesome forms of entertainment this cool college town has to offer! Follow Malini’s exciting adventures and new discoveries on Entertaining Fort Collins.
