Fabian Lujan

Fabian was born and raised in the Roaring Fork Valley. After completing a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice, he has focused on working with youth and their families as a mentor. His work at YouthZone and the Youth Recovery Center at Valley View Hospital led him to Stepping Stones. He has developed a passion for working with youth, and he believes this is where he is meant to be.

As a positive and outgoing person, there are many things Fabian seeks to learn and experience. In his free time, he enjoys listening to 80s music, grilling burgers, and floating down the river. Nerdy at heart, he joins his friends for game nights. Whether it’s board games or video games, in the end it’s about enjoying their company and the laughter they share together.
