Kirsten Gunnerud

Our Sage.

Kirsten first saw the seed that was Rocket Trike and has nurtured it for many, many years, trusting that the right people would come together to bring it to life when the time was right. Intuitive, empathic, open, creative and analytical, she brings her unique heart--based thinking to all she does. 

My "magic": Intuitive, empathic, creative, open

There's not much Julie can't make better. She just naturally sees the opportunity, the simpler path, the clarity. An artist in her own right, amazing graphic designer and a truly passionate believer in the importance of art and creativity in life, she brings a diverse understanding of it all to the low-brow artists in all of us ;-)

Tiffany McKenna

Our Passionista

You'll never wonder what Tiffany is passionate about. She chooses it in everything she does - always looking for fresh, new approaches that make a real difference in people's lives. 

A firm believer in living a creative life and going with the flow of it, she's fallen in love with Franklin, TN in great part because it's a part of our country that seems to celebrate finding your own way of living creatively.
