Ft. Collins born and raised, Lacy is a rare breed of true Colorado natives. After attending Colorado State University, Lacy lived abroad in Peru where she honed her Spanish skills teaching English and thwarting would-be cell phone bus thieves. She loves to move her body as a yogi and dancer with moves that would crush even the most worthy street dance battle opponent. When she isn’t rocking the sales game, she can be found hiking outside or busting a move at the Liberty.

Brittany Newell
Reservations Specialist
[email protected]

Other than a brief stay abroad in the Land Down Under where she resided in a kangaroo’s pouch, Brittany has never ventured far from the mountains. And why would she? Born in Alaska and raised in Colorado, she's always felt at home in towns that could double as snow globes. Brittany graduated from the University of Colorado in 2011 before moving back to Telluride. In her free time, she can be found camping in the mountains, hiking, or paddle boarding on Trout Lake with her ferocious attack pup, Ellie.

ERICA DOEMLAND
Homeowner Services
[email protected]

Erica, Latitude 38’s resident adventure junky, has lived in Telluride for sixteen years while somehow managing to spend less time here than anyone! Usually found hanging off the side of mountains in a yellow dress, working on her Weekend Warrior Adventure website, 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 to fund her wild adventures, and now - serendipitously - is mother to a 12-year-old wunderkid who is already logging flight hours.

Favorite Telluride Pasttime: Rocking her mad sock game on the softball fields where she plays for Telluride Tire

KERRY CURTIS
Concierge Services
[email protected]

A river rat in disguise as a tall blonde woman, Kerry feels most at home fly fishing in a boat on the water. Unfortunately, since living in a boat on the water isn’t practical year-round in Colorado she was forced to move into a real house in Telluride. As a previous mountain town resident of Durango and Crested Butte, she spends most of her free time getting lost in the mountains with her dog, Penny, and testing out all of the wonderful things to do around town as Latitude 38’s concierge.

Favorite Festival: Blues & Brews

SARAH HARKNESS
Content Marketing Manager
[email protected]

Sarah, a native of Austin, Texas, grew up spending family vacations in Telluride where she learned how to ski and fell deeply in love with the San Juan mountains. Following her graduation from Wake Forest University, she moved out to Colorado faster than you can say, "John Denver," with her corgi mix Bateman. She has lived in Telluride full time since 2017 and has embraced mountain living with fervor - hiking in the warmer months, playing in the snow in the winter.

Favorite Apres Ski: "The Cosmopolitan for sushi and cosmos. Don't miss the salmon tataki!"

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 our little box canyon. Shanda enjoys the slower paced mountain lifestyle and only misses the humid, mosquito-filled streets of Houston when she needs to shop for new threads. As our new CFO, Shanda brings all the skills of a mathematical gangster to Latitude 38 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 here and is now mother to fifteen-year-old Soren. Fondly known to her coworkers as “Bradley” she has been in the property management industry for so long, she could install a light bulb blindfolded and with a hand tied behind her back. She has a fierce eye for detail and will stop at nothing to make sure your home is perfect for your vacation.
