Team of The Shade Shifters
I have lived in South Lake Tahoe for 7 years. I graduated from the University of Vermont in 2010 with a degree in Business Administration. I enjoys snowboarding, hiking, biking and live music. Her favorite parts about setting up tents is getting to be outside, traveling and making sure my clients are happy!
I moved to Tahoe almost 20 years ago and never looked back. I found a home that spoke to my love for the environment and being outdoors. I have always loved going to and planning events and saw a lack of inventive shade at these otherwise beautiful events which lead me to start Shade Shifters. I balance this with my work for a conservation district that is involved with projects that help keep Tahoe the natural wonder that brought me here to begin with. When not working, I keep busy skiing, mountain biking, and visiting her farm in Nicaragua.
I grew up in Orange County and moved to Tahoe 15 years ago. I am the mind behind every unique tent set ups we do. My critical thinking, problem solving skills and artful eye make setting up these versatile tents go smoothly. In my spare time I enjoy skiiing, mountain biking and metal sculpting.
