WHO WE ARE
Hi I’m Caitlin.
Born and raised in Alaska, my parents were transplants who came up to Alaska for an adventure and never left. I grew up exploring the amazing backyard that Alaska has to offer- kayaking, hiking, climbing and skiing. Over the years my love for this magical place has grown and I’m always in search of new peaks to conquer. When a peak isn’t being explored, I indulge in yarn, paint and spending time with my black dogs.
My journey with Denali Dreams started in high school labeling lip balms. Over the years I worked my way up learning to wrap, cut and make soap. The founding mothers Barb and Janie, after 18 years of being in the business, were ready for their next adventure and I was thrilled to keep the dream alive. I’m incredibly passionate about creating quality products that are great for your skin all while incorporating a piece of Alaska into them. If you are ever in Anchorage stop by our shop and say hi!
A new Alaskan transplant from Maryland Ben has taken up the art of slinging soap. He is our master creator in the kitchen helping create all the products we have to offer. Occasionally we let him out of the kitchen to come up from to help with the store. Outside of getting greased up, Ben has a natural talent for capturing moments with his camera and fighting off the enemy while playing DOTA.
A true sourdough Alaskan who has watched this tent city grow and is another soap slinger in the kitchen. She keeps the grease to a minimum and is always ready to fill in wherever a hand if needed around the shop. When she isn’t crafting soap she can be found, camping, sewing, knitting or making a mean pastry.
