DANNY SHUGART

Owner, Director of Operations

Hi, I'm Danny. I co-founded Shugart Connections with Samara in 2014 and our main goal was to help individual small businesses gain a digital advantage in Mammoth Lakes. Today, I run all of the day-to-day operations spanning from all over California, Montana, Colorado, West Virginia, and France. I'm the lead web designer and continually collaborate with Samara on new trending technological advances to better our products. My focus is centered around creating a positive user experience to drive web traffic and increase revenue. You can count on me to keep it fun at all times, but make no mistake my passion and professionalism will effectively manage any project.

In my spare time, I'm an Engineer Driver/Operator and EMT for the Mammoth Lakes Fire Protection District. Besides an absolute love for anything outdoors my love for the community, I call home is very evident.

Hey, I'm Samara. Not only am I the co-founder of Shugart Connections, but I was the architect behind its foundation. My passion for backend development through my full-time engineering job led me to WordPress and the Genesis Framework. One day it dawned on me that what was once a hobby could actually be a full-time business that Danny could operate. A couple of years later what started out as just a thought turned into what Shugart Connections is today.

When I'm not being a computer nerd, you can find me out enjoying anything outdoors with Danny and our playful boxer Hannah Banana.

HANNAH BANANA

Director of Customer Happiness

Hey there, I'm Hannah Banana!! I'm a critical component to the success of Shugart Connections. My main goal is crystal clear...make sure each and every client is satisfied. I'm the second Boxer Dog to hold this prestigious title and make no mistake I will always deliver the greatest customer support. My attention to detail to work through the daily customer support tickets and close tickets in a timely manner is something I'm very proud of.

When I'm not knocking out support tickets, I'll be out running, going for walks, playing around with my friends and of course, JUMPING. I need to work on my jumping, but I'm only one year old, so it's a work in progress.
