About - The Team

Jonathan Noury-Elliard

Jonathan is the creator of N.H. Rocks and although he moved out of the state to live in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and finally California, his heart has always belonged to The Granite State.

Jonathan grew up in Canterbury, NH in the middle of Ayers State Forest where he cultivated a deep appreciation for nature. Constantly curious and full of energy, he wants to help better his state by bringing awareness to the lifestyle he has fallen in love with.

In junction with NH Rocks, Jonathan is currently pursuing his M.B.A. in Economic Community Development, lives in Meredith, NH, and is the proud dog dad to his German Shepherd, Sia.

He is thankful to have such a wonderful team helping to promote New Hampshire through NH Rocks.

Kelsey Dobmeier

Kelsey moved to NH at the age of 5 and now, couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. She spent her childhood bass fishing with her father in Woodstock, swimming in Lake Winni, and roasting marshmallows by the camp fire.

An active sledder and snowman builder, she doesn't just find her entertainment from summertime activities. Year round, she stays active by hiking, attending a local fitness class or just plain hitting the gym.

Her free time is spent exploring New Hampshire and working as a Real Estate Agent.

Japhet French

Japhet grew up on a tree farm in southern New Hampshire where the majority of his youth was spent in the forest - building forts to read in, snowshoeing, and skiing.

Through a plethora of camping and hiking trips around New Hampshire, Japhet began to cultivate an adventurous spirit. During this time, he traveled to Canada, Peru, and Iceland which solidified a love for travel and extraordinary experiences in nature.

"I feel lucky to live in a place that allows for both," he says, "New Hampshire of course, is home for me but there is something more to it. There is something special about a place that, despite the years spent in it, always begs to explored even more."
