Gail Ridings

TallGrass owner, Gail Sharp, made a career and lifestyle change in 1995 that proved to be a success, both professionally and personally. Following a downsizing trend that continues to be popular among fast-track executives, Gail made the move from high-profile Chicago advertising executive to spa owner in peaceful Evergreen, Colorado.

That's how she created balance in her life and, because she believes it is a critical element in everyone's life, she offers balance to TallGrass guests and staff. Through the relaxation and rejuvenation of specialty spa services that pamper body and soul, the use of Aveda products that promote health and wellness, and a philosophy of life that appreciates the beauty of nature and the time to enjoy it, Gail encourages guests and staff to integrate balance into their lives, too.

For Gail, a balanced lifestyle is built around running a thriving spa business, becoming involved in community projects, and enjoying friends and family. Some of her very best times are spent with her dogs Nutmeg and Jolene, her cats Jake and Leo, and foxtrotter horses Duke, Jet and Jack Flash, enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountain landscape on horseback, hiking trails -- and the golf course, too!
