Brian spent 30 years in high tech sales and marketing before developing the first Soake Pool in 2013 out of a desire for a plunge pool at his own home. Brian wears many hats at Soake as Co-Founder. In his free time, he enjoys time at his childhood lake cottage and spending time with his family. He loves to smoke brisket and ribs any day of the year!
Karen’s background is in textiles and design. She enjoyed working in the interior design field and even owned a chocolate shop at one time. After raising two children, she co-founded Soake Pools with Brian and gets excited by the challenge and variety in each day. She loves to run, swim, and play her guitar in her spare time!
Kristen has held management positions in finance, non-profit development, fundraising, and retail. She stumbled upon her “dream job” with Soake after a move to the Seacoast area of New Hampshire with her husband in 2019. Kristen enjoys reading on the beach, cooking and hanging out by her own Soake Pool with Rob, her kids, and her three pups.
