About Gail Ridings
TallGrass owner, Gail Ridings, made a career and lifestyle change in 1995 that proved to be a success, both professionally and personally. Following a downsizing trend that continues to be popular among fast-track executives, Gail made the move from high-profile Chicago advertising executive to spa owner in peaceful Evergreen, Colorado.
That’s how she created balance in her life and, because she believes it is a critical element in everyone’s life, she offers balance to TallGrass guests and staff.
For Gail, a balanced lifestyle is built around running a thriving spa business, becoming involved in community projects, and enjoying friends and family. Some of her very best times are spent with husband, Chuck, their dogs (Pepper, Lilly and Nutmeg), their cats (Jake and Leo), and foxtrotter horses (Duke, Jet and Jack Flash), enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountain landscape on horseback, hiking trails — and the golf course, too!
