Brianne Bilyeu is a scientist and project planner who sometimes forgets that she is more than her job description. She’s a force to be reckoned with who loves to do things and get stuff done…except on the days when she’s feeling vulnerable, like an imposter or otherwise unmotivated and uninspired. Brianne loves new experiences, and her dream would be to travel the world learning new languages, sharing meals with strangers, scuba diving, and writing all about her adventures. She’s a fan of the Oxford comma, and seriously doesn’t care what you think about the fact that she once – not too long ago – watched so many episodes of Supernatural that the day started with a Christmas special and ended with a Halloween special.
Olivia James is an autistic, asexual goofball who loves octopuses, cats, and rock climbing. Born and raised in the great Midwest, she went to school at a small liberal arts college and in the process discovered that too much philosophy makes her depressed. She kicked the ass of an eating disorder, adopted some kittens, and found her true calling as a marketer in a local nonprofit (while writing, podcasting, and planning a wedding on the side). When not working too much, Olivia can be found on bullet journal websites, listening to far too many podcasts, or playing a great deal of Dungeons and Dragons.

Courtney Kupfer hails from the suburbs of Milwaukee, where she grew up with a whole shit-ton of privilege, but thinks Minnesota is really where all the cool kids hang. In 2006, she graduated from a small liberal arts college in northeast Iowa with an extremely useful major in Theatre/Dance and a minor in Women’s Studies. She is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in counseling so she can help people deal with life’s utter bullshit. Courtney is particularly passionate about LGBTQ issues and women’s reproductive rights.
