Over the years we have had some phenomenal folks work at VVR. We’ve seen young staff grow up and bring what they learned at VVR into their careers. And we’ve had dozens of staff who have met their future spouses here at the ranch. It’s an honor to have such an amazing group of alumni, and we love hearing updates from them and getting visits from time to time.
What is really an honor is the increasing number of staff who choose to come back and join the team after many years away. Mandy and Roxy are both staff who worked at VVR in the late-90s and eventually found their way back to us for long-term careers. This month we welcome Jason and Lauren, who worked at the ranch almost 10 years ago, met each other, went on to get married and pursue careers in Indiana, and are now returning to the ranch. Jason has left behind a career in financial management and will be part of the leadership team, overseeing all the HR efforts for both VVR and our sister property, the Steamboat Lake Outpost. He and Mette will be working side by side to continue to find the kind of staff that make VVR so special. Jason’s background in draft horses will also be utilized by Steph K and the wranglers as we work in our new team to the herd. Lauren will be putting her veterinary skills to work at a small animal practice in Steamboat, but we’re pretty sure we’ll be seeing a fair amount of her around the ranch with all our furry friends.
Please help us welcome Jason and Lauren as they settle back into life at VVR!
