Meet the Makers
Founder / CEO
06.03.2014 - The day I sold my first Hoot + Co product.
At 22, I started this company with ribbon bow ties and not knowing how to sew. In the beginninng, it was a way to get away from my hectic work hours and spend quality time with my sister in law and co conspirator, Lindsay. I think H&C became more than a dream when I realized it didn't feel like work anymore. I can love what I do for work while making memories and adventuring with my favorite people.
I LOVE coming up with new ideas. The butter to my bread is the creative side to production. The Summit Dual and the new Everest E- collar are why I wake up every morning ready to get to work. Some people need to separate work and life, but I thrive having both so close.
A little about me now. I have a wonderful husband who has supported me from the beginning. I am an introvert, but I am also the funniest one in the shop - some might say. I love being outdoors and love getting my dogs Jade and Dexter out as well. Everyday life is pretty busy with work, but I make it a priority to spend some true quality time with my family. We love camping, hiking, biking, and all things outdoors.
I have a lot of fun plans for the future and can't wait to get you all as excited as I am about it!..... It's been quite a journey, I'm glad you're here for it.
Lindsay is the creative director, taking the lead on most things design around here. Decals, pet tags, apparel, our new Hoot + Co Kids line, it's all her! She's one of the most creative people I know and she doesn't take enough credit. She's always down to work late nights to get things done. She goes above and beyond to make our customers happy, taking on nearly any custom request we get. She has a heart of gold and she's one of my best friends.
She's a full time mom who recently moved to Colorado. Most of her free time is spent with her son and their pups Layla + Huckleberry! We can't wait to show her more of Colorado and to see where life takes us.
Casey is the production assistant and brings her chipper energy to the studio, keeping our spirits high. Having a wide-range of experience and careers to draw from, she is a Jill of all trades and hopes to grow and focus on driving sales through additional shop partnerships. As a self proclaimed crazy dog mom, Casey is fueled by her passion for animals and understanding the nuances of creating functional products for all of you! As our team extrovert, you’ll find her making new friends at our Hoot + Co market tables… both folks and furry ones.
She’s a Colorado native who grew up in the foothills and enjoys hiking, biking, taking her dog Maverick paddle boarding, or competing at the neighborhood frisbee courses. You can find her cheering on local Colorado teams or hosting game nights with friends and family to relax on weekends. She believes that motivation and mindfulness in the workplace is the key to success—a dogma to live by through out many aspects of life.
What can I say, she is my Unicorn.
