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.
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.
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.
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.
Richard joined BibRave in 2023 and brings decades of experience working in the outdoor industry with top-tier CPG brands (including 5 years managing marketing in the Northeast for Clif Bar). He is excited to help our clients build engaging consumer campaigns and experiential programs using his broad marketing skill set. Richard’s favorite runs take place in the mountains or in a new city - believing the best way to explore a new location is on foot. A lifelong New Englander, he recently relocated from Boston to New Hampshire, seeking a deeper connection with the great outdoors. Outside of work (and running) talk to him about mountain biking, hiking, skiing, hockey, dad jokes and trying to keep up with an exuberant labrador retriever and a fiercely independent 3-year-old daughter.
Andrew is based in Chicago, IL. He joined BibRave in 2023 as an Account Manager after 3+ years of experience in content creation. Prior to his time in content creation, Andrew worked in marketing and managing ambassador programs for clients in the running space. Andrew loves to explore Chicago for new and exciting food spots and his favorite activity is watching Sunday NFL Red Zone with friends.
After one year as a BibRave Pro, Anna Olson joined Team BibRave as a contractor in 2022 and now as a Community Coordinator. Anna loves exploring the outdoors through hiking, running, biking or swimming. Before BibRave, Anna was a science teacher in Costa Rica and New Jersey for 3rd and 7th graders. She now lives in Salt Lake City enjoying all the mountains and trails with her husband and two Shiba Inus.
