Nathan Yates
Nathan YatesFounder & CEO
Nathan developed a passion for travel as a student while living and traveling throughout Europe and Southeast Asia before completing a JD/MBA and entering the world of corporate law/venture capital. Though mostly confined to a New York City office for the last few years, Nathan never lost his belief that it is possible for bold individuals to pursue their love of travel, without putting their careers on hold. Nathan is devoted to making this belief a reality for like-minded professionals everywhere — ushering in a new era of mobile, remote work forces.
Sean Harvey
Sean HarveyFounder & COO
Sean caught the travel bug after studying abroad in Barcelona in 2009, which later led to working and living in Madrid, Spain from 2010-2012. After returning to the US, he began working in enterprise tech sales for Yelp (first in San Francisco and later in NYC, where he currently resides). While working for Yelp, Sean continued to extensively travel the world and never lost his vision for a location-independent “future workplace”. We Roam was born from the idea that travel and remote work can exist even in normal, everyday companies — combining cultural experiences with professional development that actually advances your career.
Blaine Anderson

Blaine has always been up for an adventure and realized her passion for travel after spending a summer in Barcelona and studying for 6-months in Buenos Aires during college. After graduating, she moved to NYC to join a top tier luxury travel company, where she worked directly with clients to organize comprehensive, seamless and culturally fulfilling trips. This allowed her to continue to travel the world in search of untouched beaches and the best hole-in-the-wall restaurants. She now brings her travel logistic expertise and personal mantra of “living like a local” to the We Roam team to help ensure that our Roamers have a seamless, authentic and quality experience.

A long time fan of the location independent career, Phil joined We Roam to help deliver that lifestyle to others while still helping them maintain and develop robust professional lives. Phil has started several businesses of his own, everything from house flipping to tutoring companies.

A genuine networker, travel junkie, and techie who believes you don’t have to give up your career to see the world. Eli’s story starts with Southeastern roots but a global mindset.

Heather Stephens
Heather StephensMarketing Lead
Travel the world, build meaningful connections, meet interesting people, and share the story. This has become Heather’s mantra for life. Her passion for travel was sparked during a trip across Europe. It was through her exploration of Europe’s cities, blending old-world with contemporary, that she discovered the transformative power of cultural immersion as a tool for personal and professional development. After returning from her trip to her job as a marketing strategist for a Seattle-based women’s running apparel company, she searched for a way to marry her two loves of travel and brand storytelling, which is ultimately what led her to We Roam. Heather joined our team to utilize her expertise as a marketing strategist to share the mission of We Roam with the world.
Michaela Murray
Michaela MurrayProgram Lead & PR
Having lived a relatively nomadic life growing up in South Africa, Michaela developed a sense of adventure that would see her traveling to parts of Northern America, Europe, South East Asia and other regions of Africa. It was this same yearning to explore that eventually led Michaela to Australia to complete her Master’s Degree in Criminology. She immersed herself in a new culture for over three years, working in a government policy and PR role, continually battling the need to assign competing priority to personal and professional development – until she came across We Roam. With the common vision that these elements can be effectively integrated, Michaela joined We Roam to apply her skills in public relations and facilitate an experience in which Roamers can holistically thrive.
