Hi! We are Blake and Caileigh Shinall CEO/CFO of Melba and Hazel. We were recently married on May 14,2022. We are soon to be expecting our 2nd baby in February of 2023. Currently, by day, Caileigh is a preschool teacher and Blake works for the local union here in town as a pipe fitter.
Blake: (30) Was born in Pasadena, CA. Moved to Incline village, NV in 2014. Went to college at PCC, Art Institute of North Hollywood and EMT Boot camp. I have always been the kind to never sit still and focus just on one thing. There is too much in my lifetime I'd love to do and see. Melba and Hazel being an absolute pleasure for me on this journey in life. With that being said I have always had animals growing up, never in my life did I not have a dog by my side. If I could, I'd adopt every animal in need of help. Maybe one day we will turn Melba and hazel into a Rescue foundation. We will just have to wait and find out what the future has in store for us!
Caileigh: (30) was born and raised in San Diego, CA. She moved to Reno, NV in 2008 and finished out her high school career at Bishop Manogue Catholic High School. She is always had a love of children and is currently teaching in a preschool. She has her technical vocation certification in Massage therapy. She has always had a love for animals and making sure they are happy and healthy! She cant wait to welcome our second child (Remington) and add more members of the Melba and Hazel team!
About our sweet Regan: Regan Lilly (8) is the silliest and cutest member of the Melba and Hazel family! She is a super helper in getting out your orders (with a little help from mom and dad). She loves to draw and loves playing with our two dogs and two cats! she is an avid artist and loves gymnastics! She loves school and her 3rd grade teacher and loves to make new friends!
We both have always wanted to be our own boss and own a business; Melba and Hazel allows us to venture into that. We love that we can create something that can be healthy for dogs, but also 100% natural and free of all preservatives! We plan to expand Melba and Hazel into more than just an online shop and soon, we hope, to be there. we can not wait to grow our community and share our products with more and more
