Meet the Team!
NICK - Visionary
The Peterson family has recently settled down in North Idaho to live simply in their tiny off-grid homestead. Nick loves entrepreneurship,
rock climbing, mountain biking, permaculture and connecting kids with nature. While the Petersons no longer dwell in an Airstream they still live Tiny and are in the process of converting a Ford Transit that will serve as road-school van & extended family adventures.
ELIZABETH - Sales & Marketing
After converting a 40’ school bus, Elizabeth, her husband, and two daughters spent 3 years traveling the country, backpacking, rock climbing, and playing in the desert dirt. They recently bought land in northern Vermont and are living in the bus while they build a house (that isn’t on wheels). Outside of work, Elizabeth is typically found running the hills, and learning how to grow food and make maple syrup.
JULIA - Chief Storyteller
Julia has been traveling full-time with her husband, two kids and their dog for seven years (and counting). They are currently living in their self-renovated Sprinter Van, traveling all over the US. Happiest in the mountains, taking pictures and forcing her kids to walk “just a little bit further”. Alternatively trying to convince the rest of the family it’s not yet too cold to go on another backpacking trip, and, if all of that fails, baking some orange chocolate chip shortbread cookies.
DAN - Integrator & General Mgr
Homesteading in the Blue Ridge in a renovated 1974 Airstream. Dan and Leanne sold their houses and most of their stuff to travel and focus on their passions. When he's not working, you’re most likely to find Dan farming, building, or in the woods somewhere, hiking at toddler pace and collecting wild edible plants (and garbage).
CODY - Customer Success Coach
Cody & Randi built their 20 ft. tiny house in 2015 and traveled around the United States and Canada before settling down on an off-grid property in Central Oregon. In addition to his work with Throne, Cody is also a beekeeper and avid gardener. When not working, you can find them backpacking, fly fishing or bouncing down a dirt road in their Mitsubishi Delica.
HEATHER - Cust. Success Coach
Heather has been living full-time in an RV with her husband and 2 cats for over 6 years. They have decided to stop traveling for now and put some roots down by living tiny on their land in Northern VT. In her free time, you’ll find her in the kitchen cooking up vegan meals, designing tiny spaces in SketchUp, hiking or playing in her garden.
KAYLA - Warehouse & Customer Success Coach
Kayla has been living off-grid with her family in the mountains of Idaho for the last 9 years. Now that she has graduated college and has joined our team full time she is building a tiny house of her own! When she’s not busy helping customers fulfill their tiny living dreams, she loves snowboarding, backpacking, disc golfing, and snuggling with her cat.
BETHANY - Warehouse Management
Bethany is the center point for all things organization, management and shipping with the warehouse team.
Besides supervising new shipments coming in and managing outgoing orders, she enjoys all things outdoors. Which luckily is never too far away in northern Idaho. If you can't find her in the warehouse she's probably hiking, backpacking or camping. She also enjoys good food with friends and family, yoga, playing piano and reading a good murder mystery.
LUCAS - Customer Success Coach
Lucas and his partner, Natalie, have been living in tiny spaces for the past decade - a cabin in the woods, a sailboat, tents on expeditions, and for the past 5 years their off-grid THOW. He recently finished building out an adventure van and is already eyeing the next project. An outdoor educator by trade, Lucas is passionate about an active lifestyle outdoors, human-powered experiences and using his hands to create. He currently calls Southern Oregon home, having recently finished a graduate program at Southern Oregon University.
LUISA - Warehouse
Meet Luisa, the shipping wizardette! As our fastest shipper on the team, Luisa plays a huge part in getting your orders to you. She enjoys skiing, hiking, and playing with her Australian shepherd Oliver.
