I'm in the store a lot but not all the time; I have the most knowledge. 28 years will get you some serious amounts of foot info (sometimes too much), but every once in a while I am still surprised. I try to teach all my tips and tricks to the staff and customers.  I try to be practical, but                            have fun with new stuff too.  I am the

                               company movie buff.  While I

                                  haven't, of course, seen

                                      everything - I have quite an

                                  extensive library.  I'm pretty sure

                      I'm the nerd of the group  -

     not the shy or quiet nerd - you can definitely hear me on the sales floor every time.


Dusty Boland

Asst Manager

I've been with Desert Birkenstock since 2015,  started in Henderson, but moved over to the Rainbow store after the pandemic.  I'm a soft spoken person who knows a lot about your feet and shoes.  My demeanor makes me the gambling shark I am -they never see me coming.  I'm a pretty lucky guy - the rest of the staff are just jealous - so I buy them lunch sometimes.  Even if you're not the person I'm helping 

- I'll help find shoes for the person who is. 

I am the ninja salesman of our group.  

People get up to pay and realize they

have 2 more shoes than what they came

looking for - BUT they love 'em


Tony Corum


I was here in 2018 - left and just came back in May.  I have worked in a few different shoe stores - so my knowledge is vast.  I will make sure that you get everything you need to take care of your shoes.  Patron of all things theatre, I will present your shoes to you  like none other.  It's my pleasure to find the right shoe for you - making all your dreams of comfort come true. 

So make sure you "come on down"

and I will welcome you to the world

of comfort in a cute or snazzy shoe.  


Hannah Turner


As the youngest team member in the store, I give a unique perspective to our little family.  My generation is quite misunderstood.  Watch all my youthful antics in our Instagram posts and videos.  Don't  let my "girl next door" face fool you - I do  

              sword fighting in my free time.  That armor

              is way heavier than you think!  I will

              impress you with my knowledge because

              they trained me to help you in every way

              possible.  Just because I am young - 

              doesn't mean I don't know my stuff.

Tiffany Baughn

Marketing Director

I started out in the store and then they let me loose on social media.  I am the creative force behind most of our projects.  I am a little bit of a squirrel as I can get a little bit distracted by the newest, coolest things we can show you in the most amazing formats - but I get reigned back in so you get the best picture possible of what's going on in store and online right now! 

                    Want to meet with me in person  - call

                        and we'll set up a time.  I'm mostly

                       working from home as the store

                        (and all the people) offers too many

                       distractions to get all my work done.


Cat farrell

Social Marketing Mgr

You don't see me in the store all that often, but if you do I am usually filming for our Reels and videos or painting the front window.  I also coordinate all material for various doctor's offices all over town.  I work from home so I can do all that amazing creative stuff  as I raise my 3 beautiful children.  Not to toot my own horn - BUT I am an amazing artist. (The windows are all freehand)  I love working with this team and the doctors offices that I visit. 

Marketing is always fun - but when

there is a beneficial purpose to

your wares - it's even better.

Last but not Least...


Gordon Smith & Mary Hager 

Comfort Pioneer



Repair Guru


Gordon Smith

Truly amazing people  - my in-laws.  Mary started the store in 1981. A comfort pioneer in Las Vegas with Birkenstock and one or 2 other brands in the store.  Most remember the original Charleston store  - 600 sq feet of comfort shoe goodness.  With her mom as the accountant -Grandma Kay- and Gordon doing repairs on his weekends from the Barber Shop, they were truly an inspiring couple. I joined in 1995 and worked in the store learning the business, and took over the stores in 2011 while Mary semi-retired.  Over the years the repair mantel went to Uncle Bruce, then my husband  - now to our current guy. Finally they completely retired and starting doing some  traveling.  Sadly life happens and we lost Gordon in June of 2021.

Mary's barely home much as she continues her traveling adventures.  She stops in the store sometimes when she's in town, just to see what's new. 

 A family store in every

sense of the word.
