Dennis has a bachelor’s degree in advertising from University of Nebraska-Lincoln and loves project management. Previously, she worked as the operations lead in the production department of a sales company.

Her hobbies include listening to music, exercising and reading.
Kholousi has a degree in graphic design from Metropolitan Community College. He chose to study graphic design because he has always loved painting and drawing and saw graphic design as a way to combine those loves with computers, according to a press release.

Before joining B² Interactive, she interned for Omaha Publications, where she was hired after graduation as an assistant editor and Web-content editor.
