A Coloradan to the core, Jenn grew up spending all of her time outdoors, playing sports, and cheering on her Denver Broncos. She was raised in Highlands Ranch, CO along with her 3 brothers and 3 sisters (hold the "Brady Bunch" jokes, please) and then went on to graduate from the University of Colorado located in the beautiful city of Boulder. Jenn holds a Bachelor's degree in Journalism and Mass Communication along with an emphasis in Spanish language. After spending 2 years working in education, her love of adventure and trying new things led her to Cloud 9 Living, where she is able to help others give their loved ones the gift of a brand new experience! In her free time, Jenn enjoys writing, running, camping, Crossfit, watching hours of Netflix, appearing on game shows, and spending time with her family and friends.
Jess grew up in Parker, CO, and played tennis competitively through high school. After attending two years at Colorado State University, she followed the allure of sand and sun and her love of film to The Dodge College of Film & Media Arts at Chapman University in Orange, CA. There, Jess acted in and directed a number of student films and studied Advertising & Public Relations. Following school, she worked at a traditional advertising agency in Newport Beach and learned a lot about design, branding... and the lifestyles of the rich and the famous. Jess married her college sweetheart from CSU and lived in Newport Beach for about 4 yrs before deciding to ditch the surf and return to the snow of CO. Since coming home, she worked at a traditional marketing agency and within an internal marketing department where she developed her creative design, email marketing, and project management skills. She and her husband recently got our first "child", a ginormous, fluffy Alaskan Malamute called Buffy, aptly named for The Slayer. Jess is thrilled to be working in Boulder and even more thrilled to join such a fun team!

Kahla joined Cloud 9 Living after finishing the Appalachian Trail in 2013, hiking from Georgia to Maine. After finishing, it confirmed that the outdoors was one of her biggest passions so moved to Keystone, CO to be a ski instructor for the winter.

Kahla grew up in Lancaster, PA and went to American University in Washington, DC. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Interactive and Multimedia Design and a minor in Marketing. Merging her love of experiences and design at Cloud 9 Living couldn’t be a more perfect combination. When she’s not designing you’ll find her climbing, hiking, skiing, and traveling as much as possible.
From 80 to 8 in 72... That was the temperature change in the 3 day move that brought Jeff from Florida to the Denver area when the great outdoors and the mountains called. Jeff has been successfully SEO-ing websites for over 10 years now and since moving to Denver is now thrilled to be a part of the Cloud 9 Living team as the SEO Specialist. Playing baseball was always Jeff's passion growing up and it took him all the way through college and beyond. Today hiking and photography is where and what you'll find him doing in his free time. Jeff lives just outside Boulder with his wife Tammy and their (blind) terrier Butch... but don't tell him... he still loves to go hiking with us.

Melanie was born and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Despite being a proud Michigander, she moved to the Big Apple after high school to pursue her dream of working in the fashion industry. Upon graduating from Fordham University in New York City, Melanie embarked on an exciting career as a sales executive for a major fashion brand. By all accounts, she was living the dream. Dreams change however, and it wasn’t long before Melanie’s other passion, her passion for adventure, took over.
After nearly 10 years in New York City, Melanie packed up her life and took the meandering route to Colorado. Along the way she ran her first 50 mile race in Washington DC, hiked the entirety of the John Muir Trail in California, spent weeks exploring Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, and backpacked in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. It was quite the journey, but she is excited to be settled now and ready to help share her love of adventure through her work at Cloud 9 Living.
