RILEY ELLIOTT

#creativegenius

Meet Riley, the #creativegenius . Fueled by kombucha and black coffee, she is the face of brilliance behind social media, graphics, websites, and marketing. You can thank her for everything you know about us so far. Riley lives in Denver, CO and spends her weekends almost exclusively outside – exploring the mountains with her Pitbull named Indigo. Her kryptonite is designer sneakers, tattoos, and charcuterie boards.

AMY LOURICAS

#bossbabe

Meet Amy, the #bossbabe . She makes the KEPHD world go round. Amy is our Chief Executive Officer (CEO).  Without her, the company would be a heap of brilliant ideas with no execution. Amy lives in Denver with her son Bennett. She does a killer Chewbacca impression (possibly because she drinks so much Red Bull), and her favorite thing to do is play LEGO with her son! If you have the chance to meet her, you will be instant friends. She will make you smile, laugh, and feel so loved. But don’t let that smile fool you, she is a powerful #bossbabe. We’re not joking around, nothing would get done around here without her.
