We have a great group of people making Kangaroo Coffee hop. We take pride in our KC Workplace Culture. Our Baristas pour not only a tasty drink, but also their hearts into their work. It’s reflected in the relationships they foster and community they create. Our Operations and Community Engagement team know the business, literally, inside and out, paying attention to all the details while leading the company forward. Together, we bring out the best in each other and those that count on us for a bit of sunshine (or caffeine) every day.

Initially, Doug began his work with Kangaroo Coffee in 2015 as a consultant and then fell in love with the company and the Springs. He assumed the position of Chief Executive Officer and General Instigator in 2016. In his “free time” you’ll find him on the basketball court, golf course or best of all, goofing around with his two remarkable grandchildren while enjoying a fine cup of Kangaroo Coffee.
Robin brings extensive administrative experience with her to the Kangaroo family, and she is very excited about being part of this exceptional team!
After hours you’ll find her gardening, spending time with family and pets, and enjoying beautiful Colorado.
Robin truly believes a cup of coffee shared with friends is time well spent.
Operations and Project Development
Adam believes that behind every tasty cup and happy customer, there’s a well-prepared team working in harmony. From boss to barista to buyer, he hopes to make everyone’s life that much easier and thinks that Kangaroo Coffee is a place most deserving of it. The Roo family is full of excellent people, and he’s determined to ensure that nobody goes without.
A Colorado native, Adam is an unapologetic nerd and enjoyer of the finer things in life; like petting cute animals every day and watching his favorite streamers ply their trade. Just don’t tell anyone he prefers the matcha.
Cafe & Coffee House Manager
Lily moved to Colorado Springs from Las Vegas, Nevada in May of 2020 with her partner, and is here to stay. In 2017, after working in retail for some time, she decided to dip her toe into the coffee realm and has been in the field ever since.
To Lily, coffee is more than a yummy potion to get you going in the morning, it’s a vessel that helps her make connections with those that she meets. Nothing brings Lily more joy than to make someone’s day, not only with a warm latte, but with a warm smile as well.
