Co-Founder and President
Kai was born and raised in Colorado before moving to Moab, Utah. He is the Co-Founder (along with his wife Jen) and President of Wild Raven Soap Company. In addition to coming up with product ideas, doing research, creating recipes, sourcing ingredients, and developing and overseeing production, Kai is responsible for providing the marketing, graphic and web design, and technical support for the company.
After completing his master’s degree, Kai had a short stint as a Social Studies teacher, and nearly twenty year career in the Computer and Information Technology field before deciding to make another switch and go to work full time in the skin care industry in 2019.
When not thinking about soap or sitting in front of a computer, you will find Kai hiking, mountain biking, backpacking, and climbing America’s highest peaks.
Co-Founder and Vice-President
Jen has worked in an office management capacity for a variety of companies and non-profits over the past 20 years. She brings this experience to help keep the books balanced and paperwork straight in her role as Co-Founder and Vice-President at Wild Raven Soap Company.
In addition to bringing her accounting skills to the table, Jen’s creative side and attention to detail also make her the lead person in charge of production, and she regularly spends hours making soap, packing and shipping orders, providing customer support, and working with wholesalers.
When she’s not making soap or crunching numbers, you’ll find Jen hiking, mountain biking, running, reading, cooking and spending time with her husband Kai and their animal friends.
Originally from Massachusetts, Jen is happy to be a desert rat and thrilled to call Moab home.
