We're not quite sure how she does it but there is never a dull moment in this lady's life. She even manages to throw in a little photography on the side.

Kiernan “Fly” Boike on Sarah Hunt:
Having been out here for just a little while, I can honestly say that Sarah is one of the coolest ladies I have met in Seattle. She is extremely ambitious and gives so much to her career, yet somehow she manages to find the time to dedicate herself to something she believes to be such a positive thing: Ladies Lotto.

Ladies Lotto New York
Julie Halverson

Julie Halverson didn't know what a roller coaster ride she was getting on when she moved to New York City in 2002. She attended the infamous Parsons School of Design, which led her to work at glossies including V Magazine and Teen People, and the prestigious Richard Corman Studio.

She traveled the world for a year as a professional photographer with a working fashion portfolio to boot. During her travels she was commissioned to photograph safari camps including one of Prince William's favorite sites -- Lewa Downs – in Kenya.

After Julie returned from her travels she decided to back up her creative work with a bit of business experience. Before Julie knew it, she was working at Atlantis Health Plan and shot right up the corporate ladder. Now, she manages Atlantis' top producing sales team. Julie has brought her health experience to Ladies Lotto and has helped members navigate the murky world of health insurance.

Julie's talents do not stop in the arts or sales; she's also a triathlete with a purpose. She's raised thousands of dollars to help fund cancer research through her work with Team in Training.

Ladies Lotto Los Angeles
Heather Lipner

Heather Lipner caught the the dot com bug at the tender age of 17. During college she was lured into becoming a marketing representative with free CDs, merchandise and concert tickets offered by the likes of IUMA.com, Clickradio.com and Riffage.com. She enjoyed all the perks but had an ulterior motive; to gain more knowledge of branding, design and technology.

After earning a bachelor's degree in economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Heather decided not to return to the Windy City where she was born. Instead, she opted to work in sunny Los Angeles. Initially a web designer, Heather has worked in several positions including account and project manager. In 2005, she joined the ranks of Fluidesign, an award-winning branding and interactive firm.

Heather's comprehensive work in interactive branding and web design provides a solid source of leadership at Fluidesign. She is constantly inspired by the ever-growing and ever-changing environment of the interactive design world. Heather loves listening to the vision of her client's new business and product ideas, while being a key component in the latter. The most rewarding part of the process for her is to watch her client's projects succeed. Her creative energy combined with her business
savvy is what sets her apart as Fluidesign's general manager.
