Allyson was born and raised in Olympia, WA. Often traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest, you would most likely find her body surfing, kayaking, swimming and camping. Growing up in one of the rainiest states, she yearned for something brighter. She soon found herself in Montana where she spent her days hiking the M and water rafting. Although she loved living in Missoula, the small town vibe did not feel true to whom she is. She soon landed herself in the grand city of Denver, where she hopes to have her first sky diving experience and enjoy the numerous festivals. She will miss her days at the beach, but is excited to be a part of The Premier Group and explore the rest of the Rocky Mountains.
Born in Seattle, raised in Chicago, Bailey spent a little over a decade in Texas before finally making the decision move out to the Rockies. After many frequent visits, she decided to pack up, grab her dog and head up to Colorado to dive into staffing head first. She spent more than a few years in the hospitality industry, drawn to the customer interaction and energy. She enjoys almost anything outdoors, especially when the sun is involved. If the sun isn’t shining, odds are Bailey is inside with a book or creating something in the kitchen. She definitely got a double dose of the “cooking gene” from both mom and dad and has recently attempted her first garden, testing the odds of inheriting their green thumb as well. Bailey recently joined the Premier Group and is feeling quite at home in the Construction Division.

Ian is a Utah native and has spent the better part of his life here.
