Tippy Christopher, Director of Human Resources

Not unlike her idol, Coco Chanel, Tippy's life began under meager circumstances. She's a true "rags to riches" story of how dedication, hard work and a tenacious attitude can lead to great things.

Along with her true passion of maintaining upbeat staff morale, Tippy's responsibilities also include: tirelessly testing custom dog beds and designer poufs, high alert notification of deliveries and construction site visits.

Tippy enjoys exploring and finds it an endless source of inspiration. Some of her favorite past times include: walks in Hampton Park, the beach at Sullivan's Island, and lounging in the Sonoma Valley.
