Meet our friends and posse—a group of van dwellers that share our passion for the outside and nomadic lifestyles. They provide an outside perspective on our business strategy and bring deep subject-matter expertise and market knowledge to Van X, challenging us in progressive ways.
Sydney travels full-time in a Ford Transit with her dog, Ella. Besides her love for traveling, nothing makes her happier than helping others realize their dreams and making the process easier for them to get there. She shares everything she’s learned on the road, from all-about her van conversions to living logistics to fun stories she’s picked up along the way. She aims to be thought of as that friend you can turn to with any questions you have if you aren't sure where to start or what to do.
Megan is an adventure enthusiast, outdoor lover, aspiring creative, and self-proclaimed number nerd. As a recovering full-time vanlifer, she’s learning to slow down and embrace the pace of her own journey. Megan traveled the USA for about 15 months living out of her van, meeting great people, and exploring the great outdoors. She maintains a fairly nomadic lifestyle while running her own accounting and finance consulting business (The Outdoorsy CPA). She values community, consistent personal growth, living a healthy and sustainable lifestyle, and having a positive impact on those around her. Megan joined the Van X team to help keep their strategy honest, but also provide financial advisory services as it relates to business operations and sustainability.
Jana & Fabian
Fabi & Jana are taking a ride on the wild side! They are a thirty-something German couple from Berlin, where they quit their Management jobs and spent 6 months converting an old rusty van into their dream home called Fritz. In April 2018, they started their journey from Los Angeles, California along the Panamericana. On the way through Mexico, they picked up two awesome rescue puppies, Lola & Pablo, and are now traveling as a squad of four. For Fabi and Jana, vanlife is about taking that detour, going to that place that everybody said they shouldn’t, and staying for a while in places that don’t seem to offer much at first sight. If you take it slowly (and they sort of have to, because Fritz is just slow), you might be surprised by what you find behind that next corner! At Van X, Fabi and Jana assist the team with strategic directions related to Marketing, Communications and Advertising.
Corey & Emily
Answering the call of adventure, Emily and Corey left snowy New England for the open road in 2013. In the beginning it was an experiment. Could they survive as digital nomads following their passion? They quickly learned anything is possible with a little grit and hard work, and they've been at it ever since. With their rescue dogs Penny Rose and Bella Luna leading the way of the wild, they drive, mountain bike, surf, yoga, and hike their way around North America. Passionately they serve to inspire their community towards experiences over stuff, movement outdoors, and embracing discomfort.
