About me

My husband John and I moved to Golden from Washington D.C. about 10 years ago. I’m retirement age.

Our daughter moved out here for a job, but she fell in love, got married and stayed. After John retired from the federal government — he worked for the Eepartment of Energy — he and I moved out here to be closer to our daughter and her family.

I retired from a career in retirement living in 2007. I met some of the best people — the residents were witty, well-traveled and charming. They were an amazing array of people.

A love for literature


I belong to the Golden Fortnightly Club. It’s a group of women that has been meeting for 130 years. It started back when women couldn’t go to college and was designed to be a four-year course of study. Today, for the most part, it’s a social group with a focus on books. About 20 Golden women are members and we meet every two weeks. It’s a lot of fun.

I like literature a lot, especially contemporary fiction. I enjoy reading, and I write book reviews for various publications.

One of my hidden secrets is that I want to someday go on Jeopardy. I’ve been watching it for years, but I started out my career as a school teacher, so I think I enjoy Jeopardy because of the mental challenge.

Citizen of the Year


On March 25, the Golden Elks honored me with a Citizen of the Year award. It was one of the most humbling experiences of my life. That same night, awards were given to firefighters and law enforcement officers, who risk their health and lives every day to keep us all safe. You cannot imagine what a huge honor it is to be in the same company with those men and women.

I’ve been involved with the Golden History Museums for about five years. I’m at the front desk on Wednesdays, and it’s just a treat. Local people come in, as well as people from all over the world.

I love the sense of community we have here in Golden, and I wanted to contribute to that.

My name is, Andi Pearson, Golden
