Backstory

Carolyn Holliday started racing mountain bikes as a kid and got a job in a bike shop while she was in high school in order to get bike parts at a discount - so she’s been in the industry quite a while. Carolyn likes to be challenged;that’s why she’s always out there doing various outdoor sports, trying to get a little bit better at something every day. She drove across the country one time in order to move out here, and she says she’d never do it again because sitting still for three days straight was just too awful. Passionate about shopping and about being outside, Carolyn is pretty excited to be buying apparel for Jans, and we’re just as excited to have her.

 

“I first met Carolyn when she was hired for the sales floor at White Pine Touring. She had recently moved to the area. I liked her from the start. Carolyn's energy, sense of humor and bubbly personality makes her easy to work with. Additionally, I learned that she raced downhill, so her mountain bike knowledge and skill is vast. It's been a few years now and what I confirmed since our initial meeting is that we're lucky to have Carolyn in the fold. She has this work ethic you can't teach, you either have it or you don't. Furthermore, she has incredible attention to detail and a great sense of style, so her position as soft goods buyer for White Pine Touring is a great fit. I look forward to working and playing with Carolyn for many years to come.”
