Paul runs marketing at Verblio and is a self-proclaimed digital marketing and SEO nerd. (Checking Google Analytics is his favorite form of procrastination). Although digitally savvy, Paul has a rare genetic defect that makes him incapable of understanding memes. His prerequisite I-live-in-Colorado activity is snowboarding, and his prerequisite millennial drink of choice is bulletproof coffee. Verblio colleagues do not approve of his favorite word.

As senior director of operations, Zoe draws on her background in business and film production to help Verblio customers tell their stories. Outside of the office, Zoe does all the (Boulder) things—hiking, cycling, running. Only her complete disinterest in snow sports differentiates her from your average Boulderite. Yet somehow, we’ve found it in our hearts to forgive her.

Laura blends over 20 years of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and agency experience with a love for marketing and passion for data to help companies unlock the power of great content to grow brands. When she’s not in the throes of pricing and packaging or go-to-market strategy, she is probably on a bicycle. Laura maintains a constant ratio of two rescue dogs and two rescue cats at all times. She received a BS in Computer Information Systems and International Business from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business, as well as a BA in Germanic Studies.

Ted brings over a decade of experience in marketing and sales leadership to Verblio. The brilliant creatives that surround him at work inspire him to pursue his artistic passions, but his tastes have been called "unconventional" by undiscerning observers. In fact, he runs a film festival featuring the worst movies ever made (and he's taking suggestions if you've seen some truly terrible ones). When he’s not helping agencies and publishers maximize their content strategy, he loves hanging out with his children, skiing, playing his ukulele terribly, or hitting the trails with his best friend and doggo-extraordinaire, Marty.

Alexa is a trilingual bibliophile with a severe case of nerdiness. Her Verblio journey began in 2016, when she first became a Verblio writer. From there, Alexa inexplicably found herself in the role of account manager, and finally coerced worked her way into the operations team. Now, she happily manages Verblio’s professional services from her home office in Florida. When she’s not spamming Slack with pictures of her husky, you’ll find Alexa playing video games, boating, re-reading Harry Potter, or singing showtunes.

Josh was born and raised in Hawaii. Having spent years as a magazine journalist and digital media writer, Josh deeply understands and loves the writer community.

When he isn't strategically combining those two passions at Verblio, you can find Josh chasing his three kids: A son, a daughter, and a French bulldog.

As a writer-turned-account manager, Casey loves building genuine rapport with clients through empathy, humor, and problem-solving. More than one client has referred to her as “part account manager, part therapist,” which about sums it up. She loves long-term travel, her senior rescue mutt Miles, getting lost in the woods, Jane Austen, writing fiction, and visiting animal sanctuaries. So far, she has hugged elephants, sloths, and spider monkeys but she really has her heart set on hugging a baby kangaroo.

As a Customer Success Manager, Meghan loves creative problem solving and helping customers get the most out of Verblio. She is a New Jersey native and spent the first 6 years of her career working in startups in New York City. Her love of nature and fresh mountain air made relocating to Denver a no-brainer.

Favorite Word: Ardent
It’s fitting that her favorite word is “ardent” because Emily certainly is passionate about a lot. From rock climbing, to photography, to philosophy, she’s usually busy honing her crafts or learning something new. A jack of all trades, master of none, isn’t too bad...actually it’s fun! If she were a fruit, Emily would be a mango, so I could live somewhere tropical.

Currently residing in Denver, CO and having lived in places like New York, California, Chicago, and Michigan, he’s no stranger to travel. Work actually seems to be the only thing that makes T.J. sit still, as in his free time, you’ll usually find him rock climbing, hiking, camping, snowboarding, road-tripping, or just getting lost in the outdoors (sometimes literally).
