Other than a brief stay abroad in the Land Down Under, Brittany has never ventured far from the mountains.

After graduating from the University of Colorado, she moved back to Telluride and began working for Latitude in 2018. Here, she consistently provides excellent service to all our potential guests.

Erica, Latitude 38’s resident adventure junky, has lived in Telluride for sixteen years. As a property manager, she developed a passion for working with Owners, and is now the head of our Owner Services team. Sometimes found hanging off the side of a mountain in a yellow dress or climbing Grand Teton with fellow disabled vets, she lives a life void of “dull moments.” Prior to working for Latitude, she managed the airlines at the Telluride airport, where her teenage son now logs flight hours.

SHANDA YAGEL
Chief Financial Officer
[email protected]

Shanda moved to Telluride in 2006 after visiting Colorado for the first time with a friend. From the beginning, Telluride stole her heart, so she went back to Houston to gather her belongings and faster than you can say, “Yeehaw!” she found herself a permanent resident of the box canyon. Shanda enjoys the slower-paced, mountain lifestyle and only misses the humid streets of Houston when she needs to shop. As our CFO, Shanda brings all the skills of a meticulous mathematician along with the swagger that comes with owning a Harley Davidson.

Favorite Coffee Shop: The Coffee Cowboy, I love the pay it forward board

BRETLEY DANNER
Property Manager
[email protected]

Bretley, originally a California girl hailing from sunny San Diego, has been in Telluride so long she can remember when the sidewalks were wooden....seriously. The classic case of “came to ski, stayed for the library,” she decided to put down roots and now raises her teenage son here. She has been in the property management industry for so long, she could install a light bulb blindfolded. She has a fierce eye for detail, and will stop at nothing to make sure your home is perfect for your vacation.
