Stephanie joined our team in the summer of 2021. She is our WonPad assistant production manager helping to sew, glue, and ship WonPads around the world.
Megan joined our team early in 2022. She is our shipping manager, overseeing the orders that head out each day as well as training the new crew as needed. She also assists customers from coast to coast by taking phone calls, answering emails, and shipping orders herself.

In addition to our front office managers, it takes a dedicated warehouse crew to get our ropes from thread to lariat each week. We have a mix of part time and full time employees spinning, waxing, tying, and coiling each week ensuring each hondo, burner, and tail knot is perfect. They also inspect each rope before they coil, tag, and hang them on the racks to be shipped to your doorstep.
