A behind the scenes look at the faces you see at Directions-

 -our amazing staff,


 lovely models, frisky photographer and Emma!

This is Peg.

Co-creator in all things Directions, with a classic elegant style that translates into our  website and emails and stunning window displays.  A way with words, a quick wit and a heart of deep compassion.

A great lover of animals, who with her husband Todd share their lives with six very lucky special needs dogs.  Her website, www.shastacovedogs.com is delightful and a universal reminder of the joy of living in our simple, most happy natures.


This is Lillian

With her background in art and textile design and her own innate sense of beauty she accomplishes any project with grace and ease.

Thank goodness – she keeps us organized!  Nothing slips by her, and she gently reminds us to follow up on those ever present details!

Traveler, cook extraordinaire,  master gardener and lover of fine food, she, along with her husband Kent, grow and share with us the most wonderful organic garden with the first fresh produce of the season!



Owner of www.nadineaiellographics.com for 28 years, creator of her pearl jewelry line  www.shasta-organics.com, fine artist of mixed media with many shows to her credit, poet and photographer.  Her love of books inspired her to co-create www.covertwocover.org, an organization dedicated to raising funds to support our county public libraries.

She brings to Directions her enthusiasm for community, her unfailing artistic eye and her deep commitment to honoring spirit and celebrating life.


Here is Margaret

With a wonderfully grounding presence, she brings a straightforward approach and gentle matter of fact wisdom to our working world.  A jewelry artist who designs with beads, pearls and precious stones, she also enjoys drawing and painting, and brings this lovely design sense to all her displays at Directions.

She loves gardening, learning Italian, playing kitten mother, and is enjoying a rekindling interest in playing the harp.


Meet Lisa

Lisa graciously agreed to model for our fall/winter photo shoot on the Directions website.  It was her first time-  she is a natural, and we are delighted with the results!

She’s lived in Mt. Shasta with her husband and 2 year old daughter Iva since 1998.  She runs an environmental consulting firm, focusing on managing water quality improvement projects for non-profit organizations.


This is Robyn

You may have seen her on our website before. Her natural grace and sophistication are always reflected in her photos;  we feel so fortunate that she has joined us many times in the past few years.

She grew up in Mt. Shasta and has been a medical transcriptionist at Mercy Medical for over 10 years. Mother of a teenager and wife of an outdoor enthusiast, she considers a perfect day to consist of a hot beverage, British television, snuggling up to Lorenzo, her long haired chihuahua, and “buying herself a new purse at Directions!”


Where would we be without Taryn??

Vivacious, energetic, talented and so much fun, she is the photographer behind most of  the images you see on our website and in our emails. Her website, www.photographybytaryn.com, has a wonderful portfolio of her prolific work.

A loving, caring soul with a great work ethic and strong family ties, she and her husband are joyfully raising  two young boys.


Oh – this is Jane (me)

I’m  the owner of Directions. It’s my great good fortune to work with these wonderful women.  They fill my daily life with laughter, love, wisdom, artistry and grace.  As the year 2011 draws to a close, and I look ahead to 2012, I’m filled with such gratitude for each of them and all of you. Thank you, thank you!


And let us not forget….
