Mindy Hanson

Mindy Hanson is the founder of AlphaPixel Reach. She often says she came to digital marketing because no one else wanted to step into the lava pit. Working as a Sales and Marketing Manager for a computer technology company in the 1990’s she saw a need to enter the digital marketing area to get one step ahead of the competition. She developed her first website handwriting HTML code in 1996! She later went to work for small non-profit organizations. It was there she saw the desperate need for budget-friendly, message-driven marketing and outreach. She made it her mission to learn everything she could about these new “social media” channels that were popping up and take full advantage of them to benefit the organizations she was working for. And, AlphaPixel Reach was born!
Her early experience does not mean her ideas are “old school” or stagnant by any means. Mindy is passionate about staying on top of digital marketing and general business communication trends. Her ability to bring messages to life and think outside of the usual boundaries makes her clients’ messages unique and impactful. She thrives when working with small businesses and non-profit organizations and prides herself on her ability to optimize their budget.
When Mindy is not working she enjoys traveling, hiking, gardening, reading and having coffee with friends. She is passionate about her community and is an active volunteer and serves on multiple Boards of Directors.

Sharon Trilk

Sharon Trilk is a former research scientist who left her career studying ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) to raise her two kids and ended up finding a new passion in owning and operating MyMountainTown.com, a community website designed to connect the Denver Foothills’ businesses, nonprofits, and community members so they can share information, news, and events, and help one another thrive. Since 2010 My Mountain Town has won numerous accolades, including Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce’s only two-time Home-Based Business of the Year Award, The Flume’s People’s Choice Awards Best Local Website twice and 2020 Best Long Time Business, among other distinctions, while Sharon has been chosen Ambassador of the Year and nominated for Leader of the Year. A 2013 graduate of Leadership Evergreen, she volunteers as a Public Information Officer for Elk Creek Fire Protection District, is Chair of the Leadership Evergreen Advisory Board, and is a member of the Rotary Wildfire Ready Project as well as various committees for the Conifer Area Chamber of Commerce. 

Work never really stops, but she does pause to read, have a glass of wine with friends, watch Marvel movies, snuggle her cats, and root hopefully for her Cincinnati Bengals.
