Meet Our Team
Fearless leader. Grand Poo-Bah. The brains behind the biz. Without Nina, none of us would be here. And that’s a sad thought. Not only does Nina have an impeccable eye for fashion and a brilliant mind for business, she has a rare (and startling) skill of being incredibly intuitive about people. Nina has succeeded in creating a team that is not only diversely talented, but very loyal and in tune with each other. A common love for all things taco has bonded the staff like glue, but when it comes down to it, Nina is the reason that Sweet Potato’s is a beautiful, fun and fashionable boutique right here in the quaint village of Kohler, WI.
Nina's right hand gal, the staff go-to and trend ambassador... if we worked in the White House, Teri would be our Commander in Chic. Always running to vendor meetings, attending tradeshows, managing photo shoots, supporting store events and facilitating tons - and tons - of meetings. All. In. Heels. That's our Teri. Never a free moment, with a list a mile long, but always willing to take the time to mentor, share stories, and ask how our weekends were. We love her.

We knew she couldn't stay away for long - cashmere kept haunting her in her dreams... So we're very happy to welcome Lauren back! Come see her on Tuesdays to witness her infectious laugh, incredibly distinct speed in speaking, and twinkle in her eye that only hints to the amount of energy this one possesses. Capable of reading people (and minds) like a pro, Lauren is always 2-steps ahead. With an oh-so enormous love for her 4-legged furry & barking friends, you’ll find she has a heart of gold (and we think a cot at the local humane society).

Courtney is contagious...
always coming up with nicknames and fun slang, you'll often find yourself repeating her little euphemisms. And you are bound to find her belting out the lyrics of whatever song is playing on the radio. Courtney currently holds the award for 'Employment Longevity at SP' (Sept '08!!). She started here in her teens, spent a few years as Manager and is now back to weekend warrior. This mamma is high energy and lots of fun and we just cannot imagine the store without her!

Jaclyn is our college sweetie. We're always happy to have her back in store when she's on break. It's no doubt she's an Alpha Xi Delta at UW-Eau Claire with her bubbly personality and fun loving spirit. Always put together & ready to provide excellent customer service, Jaclyn will be our management intern for the summer of 2020.

Liz joined our team after years of being a customer. She's a familiar face to so many in the community, and we love the energy she brings to the store. Positive and hard-working, fun and fashionable are a few ways we'd describe her. Liz's discipline and dedication carries over to fitness and health and drives her inspiring body-building career. We are all in awe & are hoping she'll share some tips and tricks with us to help off-set our love for all things taco & nachos....

Meet our very own dancing diva, Brooklynn! She balances work, dance and school like a rock star. You can't miss her electric smile and charismatic personality. Brooklynn knows just how to make everyone feel special when they walk in our doors. When she's not here, she's traveling the globe with Dollhouse Dance Factory, and we couldn't be prouder of all the hard work she puts in here and there!

Jackie is our Kohler High School swim star. "Quietly outgoing", funny and laid back, Jackie brings youthful energy and style to Sweet Potato's. She is always willing to help out when needed and isn't afraid to jump in and tackle a project. Jackie always looks darling, and her fashion sense is spot on whether she is dressing herself or a customer. She's certainly a valued Sweetie!

Talk about falling right into place! We hunted her down, told her we wanted her as part of our team and it was a seamless transition. Steph’s a busy mom who cherishes her time with her littles, but balances out life a few days a week at Sweet Potato’s. Like many of us, her kryptonite comes in the form of fashion. New shoes. And sweaters. Dresses too… So Steph will happily help you find the perfect outfit. Mostly so that she doesn’t buy it herself.

Sass and class. Cute and clever. She’ll make you think you’ve known each other for years when she greets you at the door. She’s our in-house model, but don’t try and help her change a tire because she will let you know she is completely capable. You’ll love working with Ari when you shop Sweet Potato’s because she has an eye for fashion and a flair for providing excellent customer service. Plus, if you have a gift to be wrapped, she’s your girl.

She’s the blonde. Seriously – the only blonde in building, lol.
Bella is in love with all things pink and fabulous white sneakers. She’s the sweetest big sister and family is everything. Hard work is ingrained in her soul and she brings a fun and laid-back energy to Sweet Potato’s. Bella will become a Hoosier in the fall of 2022, but we will welcome her back with open arms when she is home for the holidays.

She’s the baby of the Sweet Potato’s family, but you wouldn’t guess it. Elle is the volleyball queen. This girl is all over the U.S. playing her heart out. She handles everything with ease and impresses us all. She has the cutest style and truly enjoys helping others find theirs.

Sydney has spent most of her time behind the scenes at Sweet Potato's, helping with all sorts of projects. Sydney is super sweet and friendly, and also one busy high schooler. With plans to train her on the in's and out's of sales next, we hope that you will see her happy face on the sales floor in near future!
