We are a small + mighty team here at Driftless Style. The mission + vision at Driftless Style is what brings us all together. Our artisan relationships + passion for sustainability + love of ethical design keeps us going!
Our founder, Kelsie, is a social entrepreneur with a passion to connect her local community to the world, in order for customers to make an impact with their purchases. Through her travels to over 20 countries on 5 of 7 continents, she has developed a profound love of diversity, unique design and the simple beauty of handmade artisan goods. Even one conversation with her will leave you feeling loved + inspired!
Kelsie and Tyler combine their love for business + beautiful design as a sustainable solution in the fight against global poverty. They have synchronicity to their business partnership that allows them to dream big and figure out the practical steps on how to get it done. Tyler's business experience, with founding and owning two other businesses of his own, makes him an incredible asset to the "behind the scenes" work of Driftless Style. We are also thankful for his "green thumb" and assistance in bringing the botanical vibes to life at the shop!
For them, business life joins family life. Along with their two older daughters (Juliana + Evanie) and two rambunctious pups (Hugo + Bella), they recently traveled to Colombia to finalize their adoption of two more (Lara + Cristian)! If you stop into the shop, say hi to Hugo, the shop dog!
OUR DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Kara is Kelsie's sister, and has been with Driftless Style from early on. She works from Minneapolis on all things digital, from back office inventory management to graphics. She is a guru with words, which is a magical gift to our team!
Courtney makes so much of Driftless Style's beautiful photography happen. She made the first sourcing trip to Morocco with Kelsie, so she has been around a while! She works the shop floor a couple days a week so be sure to say 'hi' if you see her + her amazing smile.
