Most recently, the Denver Business Journal recognized Mrs. Pryor as a 40 under 40 Honoree in 2017, which is a high honor to recognize the best and brightest young leaders in the local business community.  Mrs. Pryor was selected as one of the 40 honorees among a group of over 500 nominees in 2017.   

    After earning her Bachelor of Arts in business administration - finance and accounting, magna cum laude, from Clark Atlanta University in 2004, Mrs. Pryor attended the University of Denver Sturm College of Law, where she obtained her Juris Doctor in 2007. That same year, she received her license to practice law from the Colorado Supreme Court, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado as well as before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit.
