Meet The Team Leadership

Meet The Team

  • Lavina

    Chief Executive Officer

    Lavina is leading our company as we build a platform of delivering exceptional products and services to our customers, ultimately helping grieving families who have lost a loved one. She enjoys meeting with and listening to our customers, gathering comments to help propel each business forward. When she’s not driving goals in the office, she’s checking them off at home. At the top of her list are family time, learning to be a wine sommelier, and helping women’s rights issues.
  • John

    Chief Financial Officer

    John acts as CFO, bringing more than 15 years of senior financial experience to the team. Driven by growth, John ensures the company is on the right track for success so we can continue to serve our customers. As a self-proclaimed weather geek, he enjoys all things nature.
  • Julie

    Chief of Staff & Creative Director

    Throughout her 15-year career in our company, Julie has played many vital roles, but she always finds inspiration in creativity, the team, and looking forward to new opportunities as the company grows. Her other favorite role is that of wife and mom, whether it involves relaxing or being adventurous outdoors.
  • Nikki

    Director of Sales & Marketing

    Nikki has captured new business opportunities and nurtured trusted customer relationships, but the thing she finds real joy in is helping our customers find success in their business. She loves to search for unique shells along the beach with her daughter and is still searching for the best carrot cake out there!
  • Steve

    Supply Chain Director

    Steve and his team are tasked with supplying the highest quality product at the least total cost – a task that contradicts itself and provides new challenges daily. Being able to problem solve as a team to conquer each day is exciting for him to witness. Boating, fixing things, and reflecting on what life brings are his other daily pursuits.
  • Kelly


    Kelly spearheads a broad range of finance areas including reporting, maintaining a system of records, annual audit work and tax filings, but also helps to improve the customer experience through things like online bill pay and continuous review of terms. When she’s not in office, you probably won’t find her in town! She loves to travel the world and live life to the fullest.

  • Tony

    Information Technology Manager

    Tony pilots our technology strategy to further scale our global platform. Without his drive for the future and serious tech skills, we wouldn’t be able to serve our customers the way we do – especially online. He’s also known for bleeding maroon and gold; GO Gopher football!
  • Craig

    Warehouse Manager

    Leader, Mentor, and Friend. Our warehouse manager knows that helping people is what we do best, and that shows in his ability to guide our warehouse team to ship and receive goods with care as quickly and accurately as possible. His other passion resides in motorcycles.
  • Kirsten

    Human Resources Manager

    Kirsten’s role is beyond talent acquisition and administering benefits; she excels at creating a well-supported, successful team. In fact, her favorite part of working for Terrybear is how passionate the team is about excellence, the products, and serving customers. After hours you will probably find her walking the dog or scrapbooking.
