Marketing & Copywriting
Rebecca joins CodeGeek as a marketer and copywriter after various careers in non-profits, higher education, and marketing. After earning her undergraduate and graduate degrees in Anthropology & Spanish and International Studies, her jobs took her to Mexico, Nebraska, and then finally Colorado, where she met her husband at Starbucks.
A wordsmith at heart, she also owns Gilchek Creative, which helps individuals and small businesses with brand development, marketing strategies and copywriting.
When she's not smithing her words, you can find Rebecca bingeing on sci-fi, visiting quirky museums, drinking way too much coffee with her husband, and attempting to keep her cats Eleven and Dax from jumping the neighbor's fence.

Originally from Indiana, Chris spent a couple of years living in the holiday-themed town of Santa Claus, eventually moving to Northern Colorado. Chris is a skater, skier, hiker, biker, husband, father, mechanic, beer connoisseur, and depressingly amateur golfer.
