Sales & Marketing Team

Judy, VP of Customer Relations

Judy joined the Sparetime Family in 2010 as a purchaser and helped with customer service. Before she joined the Family, she was working in customer service and IT. In her spare time, she likes to cook (she makes a killer salsa), go camping, garden and spend time with her friends and family! She loves to grow all plants, especially her grapevine that looks beautiful in the summertime!

Heather, Executive Associate/Marketing Manager

Heather joined the Sparetime Family in 2014 as a customer service representative and has worn many hats at Sparetime. In October 2020, she moved into the admin team as an Executive Associate and continues to manage our marketing operations. Before Sparetime, she went to school at Humboldt State University where she obtained a BS in Business Management. In her spare time, she likes to camp, play with her dog, experiment in the kitchen and spend time with friends and family. Her favorite plants to grow are tomatoes because they’re delicious right off the vine.

Tim, Regional Sales Manager

Tim started working at Sparetime in 1992 when he counted plant labels and cleaned for his parents. In July 2016, he joined the Sparetime Family as a sales rep, not that he ever really left the Family! Before his return, he was a C5M Flight Engineer in the US Air Force for 14 years. In his spare time, he likes to hunt and read (sci-fi fantasy is his favorite genre). His favorite plant to grow is Pothos, which is a common house plant that is hard to kill!

Travis, Regional Sales Manager

Travis joined the Sparetime Family in November 2016 as a sales rep for the North State region of CA. Before he joined the Family, he managed a hydro shop for 5 years. In his spare time, he likes to snow board, camp, fish and be outside! He loves growing Giant Pumpkins because you get to see it start as a tiny baby and grow into a 400-500 lb. huge pumpkin. Ask Travis how to grow big pumpkins!

Tom, Strategic Business Manager

Tom comes to us with a wealth of knowledge from his very broad lawn & garden industry background. He grew up on a chicken farm and learned at an early age the importance of good fertilizer. Tom received his education from what is now the National Tropical Botanical Garden on the island of Kauai, but has years of experience with manufactures, distribution as well as the retail marketplace. He will be helping us pioneer the new Southern California territory. Tom loves to bodysurf and play beach volleyball when he has a free minute.

Ryan, Territory Manager

Ryan Dristle became the Pacific Northwest Territory Manager for Sparetime Supply in March of 2021 with over a decade of experience in the Specialty Gardening Industry. Ryan’s experience selling truckloads of potting soil and nutrients made him a natural fit for Sparetime Supply. In addition to gardening, Ryan loves music, history, eating good food with good people, all things funny, and listening to Chicago Cubs games on the radio.

Khang, Territory Manager

Khang has been in the lawn and garden industry for just a few years while gaining great insight on industry products. He strives in customer relations and making sure clients are happy. Khang enjoys fishing, golfing, winter sports, camping and overall a good time. He is responsible for the greater bay area territory.

Cecelia, Territory Manager

Cecelia became our Northern California/Southern Oregon Territory Manger in March of 2022. She entered the sales world in 2018 where she successfully built lasting relationships with customers in her surrounding territories. She is a go-getter, who loves talking shop and learning the history of all the places and people she tends to. In her spare time, she enjoys surfing, fishing, beachcombing and spending time with her dogs.

Jeremy, Territory Manager

Jeremy joined the Sparetime Family in 2022 as a Territory Manager. Before joining the team, he worked at and managed a hydro store for eight years while pursuing his cultivation passion. In his spare time, Jeremy likes to work out as he is a Certified Personal Trainer. When he is not exercising, he likes to study and learn about economics. Jeremy's favorite plants to grow are big, beautiful flowers because there is nothing like smelling fresh flowers from your garden.

Emily, Territory Manager

Sparetime was just a brand of amendments to Emily when she moved to NorCal in 2018. She stumbled upon her passion for botany when she was only 15 working in her high school greenhouses, and her love for talking to people came after she took an opportunity in sales for a national tech company. Her strong love for horticulture and building friendships makes Sparetime feel like home. In her spare time she enjoys hiking, traveling, and tending to the jungle of plants she has collected over the years.
