Alison Marie Pilsner
A native of Illinois, but an East Coast girl at heart, Alison spent the majority of her childhood in Harrisburg, PA. She grew up getting muddy on the soccer field, wearing a pink tutu on the stage, and spending weekends exploring with her family. Alison attended the University of Pittsburgh for both undergraduate and graduate school where she earned Psychology/Spanish and Master of Public Health degrees. While at Pitt, she played Division-I soccer, studying in Spain, and met her lifelong friends and bridesmaids.
After spending 6 wonderful years in the 'burgh, Alison headed to Washington, DC to pursue a research fellowship at the National Cancer Institute. The next 4 years were filled with new experiences, new friends, and the opportunity to travel and work around the world. In 2012, Alison followed her heart to Boulder, CO to start the next chapter of her life. Today, she works as a digital health strategist, is preparing to go back to school, and loves spending time on her yoga mat and exploring all that the Rockies have to offer!
Andrew Jason Cohen
Always the Southern gentleman, Andrew was born and raised in Richmond, VA. He grew up scrapping his knees skateboarding, riding BMX bikes, and playing soccer. Andrew attended George Mason University in Fairfax, VA where he obtained a BA in Graphic Design and spent most of college racing downhill mountain bikes along the East Coast.
Post-college Andrew stayed in the DC area working as an Interactive Designer, playing soccer at night, and mountain biking on the weekends. However, he always knew his heart belonged out west where the mountains were bigger. In 2011 after running his own independent design studio for a few years, he relocated to Boulder, CO and immersed himself in the startup scene. Today he works in Denver, CO at thoughtbot, inc. , loves bicycles, motorcycles, Arsenal FC, and hanging out with Alison and their dog in the great outdoors.
