Jamie H. is an adventure-loving Iowan who has made her way to the Pacific Northwest. After receiving her bachelor's degree in biology from Iowa State, she worked in a variety of industries from coffee to technology. Through each experience, Jamie realized she had a passion for building communities and bringing people together, which ultimately brought her to the Pioneer Collective. In her free time, you can find Jamie enjoying a beer, going on a long hike, or trying to convince herself to do yoga. She also loves to travel. Her favorite places to visit are Slovenia, the Czech Republic, and Vietnam. Stop by and say hi!
Anna P. is originally from a small town in central Texas and moved to Seattle in early 2018. She is a world traveler (30 countries and counting!), and throughout her life, she has lived in Paris, Austin, Santander, Santiago, Durango, Berlin, Beijing, and Guangzhou and loves to talk about her experiences. You can often find her reading or watching sci-fi, volunteering for music festivals, exploring the backcountry, or researching ways to reduce her environmental footprint (ask about her journey to become zero waste). After many years as a writer, editor, and educator she has decided to transition to a new industry and is excited to share her skills here at the Pioneer Collective.
MEET THE FOUNDERS
Audrey and Chris are a husband and wife team based in Seattle, Washington. As their garage wood shop grew from a lone miter saw to a more robust and slightly cramped collection of hand and power tools, so did their passion for designing and building.
In their previous careers and as entrepreneurs, they each experienced a variety of office settings. After logging work hours in home offices, coffee shops, and shared workspaces, they became believers in the value of communal work environments. In a time when more professionals are able to dictate their work settings and schedules, they remain dedicated to the idea that human interaction, atmosphere, and community engagement foster creativity and productivity.
The Pioneer Collective was born from a desire to design an inspiring space and community for people who share these views!
