Shea grew up in Kansas City, MO and obtained a B.A. in Communications from Park University, where she also played collegiate soccer. She moved to Boulder in the fall of 2011 and immediately fell in love with the mountains, people and Colorado culture. Her past work experience was primarily Events and Catering but seemed to prepare her for the Experience Coordinator position at Cloud 9. She immediately captured the hearts of the Cloud 9 Living family with her unicycle riding skills and witty sense of humor. Most of her free time is spent adventuring with her golden retriever, Sulley Dog, skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, and exploring all Colorado has to offer.
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!

Ellen was born in beautiful Southern California, but her first love has always been the mountains. She grew up ski racing at Mammoth Mountain, and moved to Colorado to ski and study sociology at Colorado College.

Ellen is always looking for her next adventure, and loves that working at Cloud 9 lets her encourage people every day to break out of their daily routines and try something new!
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.
Looking for adventure, Lauren left good ol' Connecticut to become a Buff at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Upon graduating in 2012, she realized there's no better place to be than nestled between the Flatirons with 300 days of sunshine. The music scene isn't too shabby either. Between her love for travel, spontaneity and sparking conversations with strangers, helping others plan their own adventures is a dream come true! When Lauren isn't at her (newly) decorated desk, you can find her happily mingling around Boulder!

After selling the shop in 2011, Max went on to play baseball in Australia which allowed him to dive the Great Barrier Reef, see the beauty of the Down Under, and spend over a month in Bali, Indonesia.
