MEET THE TEAM
EMPOWERED STRATEGIC GROWTH
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.
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 9 year old son. 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.
Meet Aaron, the #makethingsbetter guy. Aaron is our Chief Technical Officer (CTO) and is up to his eyeballs with tech stuff everyday. As a graduate of the University of Alabama, Aaron can often be heard shouting “Roll Tide” on any given football Saturday, and when you talk to him you will recognize the deep Southern accent. Aaron is married to Nicole, enjoys playing the guitar, and making all of our lives more efficient.
Meet Sarah. Once you talk to her you will realize that #sheloveseveryone. Sarah is our Chief Communications Officer (CCO). Prior to joining our team, Sarah spent her life in the hospitality industry. She loves to serve, lives to help people, and makes sure that all of our external communication and messaging is spot on.
Sarah lives in Denver with her Pug “Newton” who makes frequent visits to the office where he serves as our unofficial mascot along with Dr. Elliott’s dog “Ted.”
Meet Whitney. As the executive assistant to Amy and Dr. Kirk, Whitney is truly the #masteroftheimpossible as she coordinates the busiest calendar on earth! Yup…scheduling gymnastics is her sport.
Whitney is generally the first person you will meet here and she sets the table for amazing relationships.
Meet Kim, one of our amazing advisors. She has served clients in the industry since 2008 which is when she met Dr. Elliott (she was the assistant to his mentor in the industry). She pretty much loves all things natural and has even been known to make her own soap and shampoo! Kim is a #podcastjunkie, the mom of three amazing kids (and formerly a pasture full of cows), and married to her husband Kevin. When you talk to her you will feel like you are the most important person in the world!
Meet Luke Gregory our #getitdone guy. Luke is an accomplished pastor, business owner, and creative leader. With a passion for care and solid experience in business development, Luke strives to see that both compassion and excellence are driving components to all that he does. With logical and spiritual insight, Luke sees to lead every single person to the proper place, at the proper time, in the best way possible. Luke is also an accomplished collegiate and retired professional athlete. Hockey and Snowboarding are key contributors to Luke’s creativity and hustle.
Meet Josh, our #GoToGuy. You can go to him for anything. He is the master of all our processes and we dare you to ask him a question he doesn’t know the answer to. He lives in Denver, CO and spends his free time cooking amazing meals and exploring the local food scene, all while dressed to the nines. He has a passion for writing scripts and spends as much time as possible in Los Angeles making a name for himself on various films and projects.
KIRK ELLIOTT, PHD
Meet Dr. Kirk, the #sparkthatstarteditall . If you’re here, you know Dr. Kirk. Chances are, you also know someone who knows him. He has his hands in everything; he is the fearless leader that’s driving this spaceship. Kirk lives in downtown Denver with his wife, 16 year old son, and 15 month old CavaPoo named Ted. He has a passion for seeing the streets of Denver restored and the homelessness eradicated. In his free time he is on the streets, loving on the broken. And when he is not doing that, he is shredding on his electric guitar
