Darren Bush / Chief Paddling Evangelist
Paddling is my passion; I love being on the water, and I love getting other people on the water too.
Simon Cecil / Youth Programs Coordinator
Tasked with introducing youth to the water, and not like when Uncle Ron tossed you in the lake before knowing how to swim.
Laura Granger / Web Content & Marketing
A nice, smiley emoticon and a lot of paddling experience describes Laura.
Scott Hamstra / Floor Manager & Buyer
I started working at Rutabaga in 1999, and through the years I've worked in almost every department.
Marit Haug / Sales & Inventory Master
I grew up paddling every year with my family in Canada. I think the thing I remember most was being the one who had to bail out the canoe
Margaret Olaiya / Sales Floor
The closest thing we have to a sales floor mom. Sensible and friendly are the best descriptors of Margaret.
Joel O'Neill / Web Programmer
At Rutabaga since 1997 or so, Joel is fluent in several languages. You probably don't speak any of them unless you're a mainframe.
Woody Osborne / Sales and Canoe Expert
At Rutabaga since 2009, Woody is the Emperor of the Boreal Forest. If it's in the BWCA, Woody's been there in his canoe(s).
Jim Pippitt / Minister of Technology
I'm called a lot of things here; The Voice of Rutabaga, Minister of Technology, or eNerd.
Jason Plesh / Web Content Manager
Jason doesn't say much, but when he does it's worth listening. He keeps the web running smoothly and performs many art projects at the shop.
Nancy Salsbury / Director, Outdoor Program
Born and raised in rural Pennsylvania, graduated from Penn State, wandered a lot, living in about a dozen states and enjoying tons of great experiences along the way.
Sasha Stone / Buyer & Inventory Manager
You know that old saying about if you want something done give it to a busy person? Well...
