Even though Kaylee was born in Wichita, KS, we consider her a Colorado native (she’s been here since the 2nd grade so she’s practically been raised here in the mountains, right?). As a young girl, Kaylee used to tell her dad she wanted to work in a head shop; always being drawn in by the warm atmosphere, pleasant conversations, and the vibrant tapestries and clothing. The moment she turned 18, Kaylee turned in a resume with Headed West and was hired not long after. We knew right away this lil’ lady would put 110% into everything, and she totally does! When she’s not busy sharing her love of Cosmic brand grinders in the shop, Kaylee spends her time hanging out with her Shiba Inu, going to concerts, and educating others in the art of beauty as an esthetician.
Area Support Operations ManagerMeet Code, the fairest of all the fair in all the Colorado lands. Hailing from Wisconsin, fair Code was brought to Colorado by his dear mother at the colorful age of 9. After working in retail management for 17 years, Headed West was finally lucky enough to scoop up this super chill dude. You’ll find him in any of our locations drooling over our extensive glass collection, more than happy to help others find the perfect piece for them. He says, “There’s nothing like knowing the excitement they are experiencing (when choosing a new piece) and it makes me happy!” When he’s not busy talking customers ears off about glass pieces, you can find Code chillin’ with his wife Nikole, their furbaby Murphy, or lost in the world of Magic the Gathering.
