Our Team

Mollie Busby

Editorial Director & Web Design Manager

Mollie Busby graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with degrees in Journalism and Retail, and worked as the Style/Associate editor for BRAVA Magazine in Madison for three years. A series of life-changing events brought Mollie and Sean together in February 2010, and after five months, Mollie moved west. The pair was married in September, 2011 and now resides in a 30-foot yurt with their dogs, Daisy and Glacier, in Whitefish, Montana. Prior to meeting Sean, Mollie didn’t even own a passport. Today, she is proud that her book is filled with stamps from 5 continents. Mollie serves as the Executive Director of Riding On Insulin, helping to empower, activate and connect kids, teens and adults living with type 1 diabetes through shared experience and action sports. She enjoys road biking, yoga, drinking coffee in the yurt and skiing!

Sean Busby

Director of Google Searches and Inspiration

Sean Busby is a professional backcountry snowboarder. In 2004, while training for the 2010 Olympics, Sean endured a complicated diagnosis of type 1 diabetes. Considering leaving snowboarding all together, Sean was inspired by reading stories of kids living with T1D that inspired him to keep living his dreams. He founded Riding On Insulin, a nonprofit, to honor all the kids who inspired him to keep living. In February 2014, Sean became the first person with T1D to backcountry snowboard all seven continents at the age of 29 in 2014. Past expeditions include trips to Morocco, Antarctica (twice!), Patagonia, Iceland, Norway, Japan, Kyrgyzstan, Alaska, Tasmania, and more. Sean graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Health Promotion and Education, with an emphasis on diabetes.

2014

The mission for Two Sticks and a Board is to inspire a sense of adventure in families of all ages. As a young family, we recognize that there will always be extreme athletes in the spotlight pursuing daring feats and documenting their trials in all sorts of ways—we, too embark on such expeditions. However, we also recognize that such a lifestyle may not be relatable for the average family. Thus, our goal is to inspire a sense of adventure in everyone—from hardcore world travelers to weekend warriors. As a married couple with a Weimeraner, we aim to capture our adventures—big and small—through photos and words to show our audience that adventure is just around the corner—nothing should keep you from exploring the outdoors and pursuing your passions. Nine-to-five job? No problem. Three kids? Take them with! There are always creative ways to explore the communities in which people live. With Mollie’s background as a journalist and Sean’s as a professional athlete, we’ve combined our efforts to become adventure ambassadors. We hope you’ll join us on our journey, from wedding vows to shredding pow.

Sean and Mollie met in 2010 and experience what we can only describe as an instant connection. After finding a mutual love for travel and adventure, Mollie moved from her home state of Wisconsin to Utah, where Sean was living at the time. We traveled to numerous places together that first year, and in March 2011, Sean proposed in Iceland. We were married 6 months later in Waupaca, Wisconsin. Since December of 2010, the pair have been working hard to get a nonprofit called Riding On Insulin off the ground. Today, Mollie works full time running the organization, and when we’re not hosting action sports programs for kids, teens and adults living with type 1 diabetes, we’re researching (or embarking on) our next big ski/snowboard expedition!
