Lauren graduated from Penn State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and a Minor in Spanish. She has been working with Verde in different capacities for the past several years. She began in 2009 as a student-intern and today she is an Account Manager.

Although she is in love with the Colorado sunshine, Lauren still calls Pittsburgh home (Go Steelers!). She lights up when globetrotting, playing outdoors, cooking, capturing moments, wearing a tutu, challenging others to a bowling match, guzzling Tabasco and gnawing on Habanero peppers (the girl breathes fire). She prefers to do all of the above alongside her adored friends and family and her dog Tank.

Laura grew up braving the conditions of East Coast skiing at a little mountain in central Connecticut and, when she was lucky, in the Green Mountains of Vermont with her family.  After just a few trips north she was hooked.  In pursuit of the outdoors and a people-focused career, she earned a degree in Public Communications at the University of Vermont.  There she discovered the thrill of downhill skateboarding (Burlington is one big hill) and her passion for travel after a semester in New Zealand.

Storytelling has always been at the forefront of Laura’s adventures – whether it be sharing the tales of experiences with friends, reading about the feats of mountaineers, or telling the story of a brand.  She also has a strong affinity for Vietnamese food and can whip up a set of fresh spring rolls on any given night.

Born in Norway, Lars-Erik grew up skiing from the time he could walk and now slides seamlessly between Nordic, Telemark, and Alpine disciplines. While he grew up riding bikes too, it wasn’t until he was attending the University of Washington in Seattle that he grew into a cyclist. It was there that he bought his first mountain bike and truly came to realize a passion for everything with pedals.

Lars-Erik once noted that all he wanted was to make a living biking and skiing. He’s made a pretty good stab at it along the way working in ski and bike shops, teaching skiing, doing a few stints as a bike messenger, co-founding a kid’s bike camp, ski patrolling, and working seven years at a major multi-sport brand. Now days you can find him biking, skiing, and yes even running in the mountains near his house in Sun Valley where he lives with his wife and two boys.
