Marie has roots in Colorado and Switzerland but knew she was home when she arrived in Telluride. As a business owner for over two decades, she dedicates care and attention to sustaining the business and supporting its growing team. She enjoys reading, poetry, silence, creating artwork, mushroom foraging and vanishing in the wilderness.
Director of Sales
Mary landed in Telluride from San Francisco, CA, where she developed an entrepreneurial mindset and data-driven approach to business. Her career spans media sales and strategy, e-commerce, digital marketing, SAAS, enterprise account sales, and at SurfaceLiner now includes designing custom products and global sales. She loves to travel off the beaten path, raises farm animals in her backyard and is a certified Yoga teacher and Reiki practitioner.
Michelle is a proud Colorado native with an adventurous spirit and a great love of the outdoors. Hiking, camping, or bagging another 14’er are her favorite summer activities, while winter will find her snowshoeing or skiing. She joined the SL team in early 2021 as the Operations Manager where her analytical and solution-focused approach ensures lasting partnerships and satisfied customers. At home, she has a small orchard and is an avid canner when nature provides. When night falls she enjoys knitting, crocheting, reading, or sipping wine on the patio.
Cameron was born and raised in Telluride, Colorado, and grew up working for his father’s construction company. He became very familiar with SufaceLiner products through installation on countless job sites in his home town. He then moved to Bozeman, Montana, to earn his degree at MSU. In the summers Cameron worked finish carpentry and did not see SurfaceLiner products in Bozeman. So he asked the question of “why” and the rest is history. When Cameron is not working he enjoys all things that the mountains provide (Skiing, hunting, fishing, and mountain biking).
Customer Service + Logistics
Kate was born and raised on a farm in Olathe, Colorado, and currently lives in New Mexico. As a former Coloradoan should, she thoroughly enjoys the outdoors–coming back home to the Western Slope on a regular basis to fly-fish, hunt, camp, ski, and visit family. Her experience in the chartered aviation industry is what brought her to SurfaceLiner in spring of 2022, and she aims to create an exceptional customer experience while managing a fast-paced and ever-changing environment. In her free time, she loves to cook, bake, garden, play cribbage, and play piano and violin with her husband.
