Jessica does a bit of everything at BibRave - from the fun to the gritty. Prior to dedicating her time exclusively to BibRave, Jessica most recently served as the Managing Director for Runner’s World. She spent 10+ years in Advertising, Marketing, and Sponsorship Sales across some fabulous non-running related organizations from Nike to LinkedIn to The Atlantic!
Jessica has run over 20 marathons, 3 ultra-marathons, and loves finding new running adventures to explore! When she’s not running she loves food, and traveling for food and - of course - running!
Tim Murphy co-founded BibRave in late 2013, originally creating a place for runners to gather online and discuss the best races to run, the best gear to try, and the best nutrition to use. From there, the company expanded into community building and influencer marketing, eventually becoming a broad-based marketing agency.
Tim has also started and grown companies in the healthcare and young professional development space, beginning his career at a Washington, D.C. consulting firm and starting his first online business in 2010.
Tim has run 17 marathons and 5 ultra marathons, and is currently shopping for his next race. Talk to him about gear, podcasts, food, Star Wars, the TV show LOST, technology, trail running, beer, bourbon, or coffee.
Andy is based in Chicago, Illinois! He’s been with BibRave since 2017, working from managing our race partners to now overseeing all our programs and partnerships. BUT... in a former life he was a high school music educator for 11 years, having studied music education at the University of Illinois (I-L-L!). Andy has completed 10 marathons, and when he’s not running around Chi-Town, he’s singing, dancing, and directing a adult contemporary cabaret ensemble, The Chicago Red Line.
Julia is originally from Chicago (the city, none of that suburb non-sense) and is currently living in PDX. She’s been with BibRave since 2014, starting out as a volunteer and making her way from community manager to currently overseeing our incredible brand clients. She lovel running more than anything (even more than her dog Layla and Abe Lincoln - and she love those two a lot). When she’s not running, Julia is probably outdoors, hiking or MTB, or at an Andrew Bird concert.
Tony Yamanaka is based in Austin, TX. He joined BibRave in 2021 as the Brand Partnerships Director with 10+ years of experience in the endurance industry. Tony has a diverse background in Marketing Strategy and Development, and he has a passion for seeing ideas grow in an organic, transparent, and engaging way. Tony is an avid runner and loves to explore new destinations. His favorite place in the world is Edinburgh, Scotland or his living room at 6:30AM watching the first Premier League match on a Saturday morning.
Jenn Savedge was a BibRave Pro for two years before joining the team as our Race Account Coordinator in 2019. Jenn loves running, runners, listening to running podcasts, reading about running, and basically all things running. Prior to working with BibRave, Jenn was a freelance writer who published a number of books, magazine articles, and blog posts on environmental issues and prior to that she was a park ranger for the National Park Service. Jenn lives in the mountains of Virginia with her husband, teenagers, and a houseful of dogs and cats. If she’s not running, she’s swimming, hiking, or reading (about running!) in her hammock.
Laura Mullins joined Team BibRave as a Community Coordinator in 2019 after serving as a BibRave Pro for four years. Laura found running after her collegiate tennis career ended in 1998 and never looked back! She has a true passion for running, fitness and building community wherever she goes. In 2016, Laura and her family moved to the mountains of Co. Wicklow, Ireland where she worked as a running coach, fitness instructor and personal trainer. She loves traveling and exploring new places through running. Prior to her time in Ireland, Laura was an elementary school teacher for many years in Oklahoma, Illinois and California. Laura now resides in Phoenix with her husband, and two sons.
Jaimelee is based in Louisville, Kentucky. She joined BibRave in 2020 as a BibRave Pro before transitioning over to her role as Community Coordinator. Jaimelee picked up running again after a hiatus and hasn't looked back. An avid track and field fan, she found a deep love for distance running and thinks more miles equal more smiles. Besides running, Jaimelee is passionate about all things influencing and marketing. In her spare time, she loves watching her kids' sports, reading, and hanging with her better half.
Elena Cangelosi is based in Vancouver, BC. She joined BibRave in 2022 to assist on a number of projects and is now an Account Manager for our brand clients. Elena loves running as a way to see new places, get outside, and meet the best people. Prior to BibRave, Elena worked as an urban planner, and loves to think about how to make places more run/walk/roll-able, including by getting more people excited about running! When not running, Elena is planning her next trip, loosely following recipes, or dreaming up trail adventures.
