Hasan is Jersey-born and raised with enough siblings to start a basketball team with a few subs. He still misses his family and the Jersey shore, but traded it all for the mountains and never looked back. During his time here he attended Colorado State, where he met his newlywed wife. Together they are avid travelers and have many passport stamps with scrapbooks to prove it. No matter the weather outside you can bet his grill is ready to go. Hasan is a fashion connoisseur, with a Ph.D. in shades, so put his knowledge to the test while he curates a perfect pair for you.
Lauren hails from Chicago and is a Biology student at Colorado State University. Lauren has dreams of pursuing Optometry in her future as a Doctor! She is the President of the Pre-Optometry Club at CSU. Lauren has impeccable handwriting, and quickly perfected her ability to give the first retinal scans and images at our office for patients before the exam. Lauren is sweet and quiet, but always ready for a laugh and a good time! She confidently claimed the pogo stick at our annual Christmas celebration so hopefully, she’s not driving her neighbors crazy bouncing around like Tigger when she’s not busy studying.

Bryn is a CSU student and is currently studying History, Education, with a minor in Sociology. Bryns’ favorite thing to study in school is World War I and World War II and how both of those events changed the world from that point on. She lives with her cat, Chica that keeps her up all night, which results in her chugging energy drinks back to keep up with work and school work. In her free time, she paints and takes art commissions on the side. Bryn’s main goal in life is to become a college professor in History and educate the youth about history and encourage them to learn as much as possible, as history helps prevent events from reoccurring.
