Meet Dustin Leitzel

Candidate for United States Senate

The first in my family to attend college, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Industrial Chemistry from the University of Northern Colorado in 2002.  During my undergraduate studies I worked as a pharmacy technician and found my calling in the medical profession. I received my Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Wyoming in 2006 and completed a one year pharmacy residency in Spokane, Washington the following year. 

I have enjoyed the last 10 years as a Critical Care Pharmacist at a Denver area hospital where I continue to strive for excellence and leadership. In addition to my daily role I also serve as my department's Pharmacy Residency Director, eager to facilitate future generations of healthcare providers. Now I want to continue to serve patients in Colorado by working to ensure no one needs to worry about the affordability or access to healthcare.

I have been married for 5 years to Christine Rost, a records manager for a midstream oil and gas company in Denver. With multiple family members in the oil and gas industry, I understand the challenges in the field and the way that companies are transforming into energy companies. We have an 11-year- old Toy Poodle and a 2-year- old Irish Wolfhound that make up our family.

My interests are varied. My wife and I enjoy attending pop culture and comic conventions such as Denver Comic Con. I run in my spare time to stay fit and relieve stress, and completed the Colfax Marathon last May. My other hobbies include photography, quilting, and playing tabletop games with friends.
