Meet the team at Red Door!

Each week we highlight an employee and share their story at our weekly We:30 Share and Tell gathering - where we, of course, also share some delicious snacks. So that you can get to know our team a little better, we wanted to share a recap of all the Red Door employees we celebrated this past month!

At the age of 36, I decided to abruptly change my life and travel around the world. I was trying to travel super light, so taking a large piece of luggage and hauling things back and through customs held no appeal to me. However, I did make one exception; one that I had made on previous trips as well. It was committing to collecting one thing in particular if I came across it. It was something I would see as a sign that the trip was a wise decision to make: The Three Wise Monkeys. Most people just know them as the "See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil" monkeys, or the "Three Wise Apes." Throughout my travels, I collected a total of 15 sets, all of which were procured from flea markets and street stalls that I came across as I wandered through various cities.

I thought about what I wanted to share and three main topics that I enjoy came to mind: travel, golf, and entrepreneurship books. I decided I would share my love of entrepreneurship books because I figured some of you mind find it useful. 

Entrepreneurship is a huge topic of interest for me and from the time I was a little kid, I have always had some new innovation bouncing around in my head. This interest has led to me reading many books on the topic. I have found that many of the habits and processes that these books talk about have a very practical application to the work we do at Red Door. In addition to business applications, many of these books contain feature exciting characters and amazing real life stories that rival Hollywood films and fictional novels. 

With that said, here are a few of my favorites, (in no particular order):

Camp fire smells, s'mores, vista points (aka amazing photo opportunities), board games, and Moscow Mules by the fire is my idea of a perfect weekend getaway. I've enjoyed hiking and camping since my first trip when I was 11 and knew, as I got older, I would continue to explore and find ways to enjoy the outdoors. 

One of my most memorable camping trips was to Yosemite last November with my boyfriend and some close friends. We hiked the El Capitan (16.8 miles) trail, which required us to hit the trail in the dark at 5 am and we did not make it back to camp until just before sunset. The views from up top were absolutely beautiful and made the strenuous climb totally worth it. Yosemite is a truly breathtaking spot and if you're lucky enough, you might run into some fun wildlife too! On this trip, I woke up in the middle of the night to a bear sniffing around our tend just a few feet away ... they are generally harmless, but can be a little scary to wake up to!

Being from Utah, I have to share my love for The Greatest Snow on Earth. Utahans are so proud of that it's even printed on our license plates. I grew up about 5 minutes from downtown SLC. There are 13 ski resorts within a 90 minute drive from downtown, with Park City, the home of Sundance Film Festival, only 30 minutes away. I started snowboarding in 5th grade as a part of an after school program, which was easily the best school activity ever created. I've had a few injuries on the slopes: one broken wrist and two concussions. The wrist happened in 7th grade, I still wasn't very good then. Both of the concussions happened in 2014, a year I rode more than any other. Both concussions happened in the terrain park where I was doing things I probably shouldn't have, trying to keep up with the teenagers. Needless to say, there is never a bad day on the mountain!
