Meet Our Team
OWNER OF SWIM WORLD
Prior to Swim World, Kelli worked as a wedding and lifestyle photographer, Marketing Director and General Manager of Sage Vacation Rentals, as well as an Office Manager for Coldwell Banker Lavigne in Wenatchee, which is how she met her husband Adam.
She is a dedicated mother of eight children and a public servant in the community. Kelli enjoys connecting with community through her creativity and heart for people. She has dedicated her time to building orphanages in Africa and India, feeding and clothing the homeless in Seattle, and providing education, food and shelter for countless youth all throughout the Northwest region.
Her hobbies include spending time with her husband and children, traveling the world and finding the perfect Tequila on the rocks combination to enjoy on the deck of her home while overlooking Lake Chelan.
Adam grew up in the Seattle area, vacationed in Chelan as a child, and now considers Chelan his adopted hometown. After graduating from the University of Washington, Adam began a career in the software industry and now owns and manages several successful businesses in Central Washington with his fiancée Kelli. This includes Sage Vacation Rentals and Coldwell Banker Lake Chelan Properties, which is a leading residential real estate firm by sales in Central Washington since 2014, with offices in Chelan, Manson, Brewster, and Winthrop in the beautiful Methow Valley.
Our vision is to provide the finest vacation rental management services to our vacation rental owners and to offer our vacation renters with an amazing, world-class vacation experience. To achieve that, we seek to go above and beyond for our customers at each and every opportunity that crosses our path. Establishing a strong customer service culture and creating great opportunities for employees with generous compensation packages are fundamental to our success.
Adam and Kelli are very active in the community and have contributed over $250,000 to non-profit organizations in Chelan since 2012, including $100,000 to help buy the Cornerstone Building. Adam has lived in Chelan since 2012 with his sons and is actively involved on the boards of several business and community development organizations.
Pool and Spa Technician
My name is Jake Johnson and I am a Pool and Spa Technician for Swim World. Before working here, I was a Property Manager for Sage Rentals and prior to that, I was a lead at a couple of manufacturing companies in the Snohomish County region in Western Washington. I decided to move to Chelan with my wife to start a new adventure together and enjoy the sun and lake! I also enjoy gaming, watching movies and spending time with my friends and family.
My name is Ashley Bradley and I am a new Swim World Store Manager! I aim to curate some great apparel and lifestyle merchandise that complement our unique lake town. I’ve always been passionate about everything that goes into making a space feel like home and making sure your environment and outward appearance reflects the way you want to live your life. For me, Chelan is a great representation of what I want to exude: peace, tranquility, self-care, family, coziness, fun, wine and sunshine ☺ When you walk through our front door, I want to you to feel and participate in our vision of Chelan and this marvelous lake life. I am an avid movie and theatre lover. In my spare time I enjoy attending the local Yoga studio, curling up with a good book or movie, kayaking on the lake, having a nice glass of wine and spending quality time with my husband and dog Ralphie.
My name is Savanna Johnson and I am a Sales Associate at Swim World. Prior to Swim World, I worked as a Guest Services Agent with Sage Vacation Rentals. My goal for working at Swim World is to become more involved in the Lake Chelan community and to also bring a better online shopping experience to our customers! My husband and I were inspired to move over to Lake Chelan from western Washington in 2017 to start a new adventure and take a break from the rain. Outside of Swim World, I enjoy reading, paddle boarding on the crystal blue water of Chelan and spending time with my family!
My name is Ellie Saucedo, I'm currently the shift manager at Swim World Chelan. I was born and raised in California; in 2005 my mom decided that we needed a fresh start filled with wonderful opportunities to grow a better life, fast forward to today, I'm here in Chelan! I've been working for Kelli and Adam since the store had been purchased by them and reopened. Working here has been so pleasant, and I enjoy every minute of it. I love helping customers find the items that bring a smile to their face, whether that's clothes, spas, furniture, you name it! I take pride in putting beautiful displays together at the store, it's like leaving my mark here. On my days off I love to spend time with my son, everything I do, I do for him! I enjoy relaxing, especially at the Lake, with my friends and family.
Director of Marketing
My name is Javes Escalera, and I am the new marketing manager for Swim World. I was raised in Manson, WA, so I’ve been in the area since then! I went to college in the Midwest to play division three volleyball and earn my Bachelor of Business Administration. I’ve been so thankful for the many opportunities that have been provided to me by Adam and Kelli, it’s been such a wonderful time growing with their nurturing support! My goals for Swim World are to create an online presence unique to that of Swim World! This boutique is unlike any other in town, and I want people to see that from the moment they search us online. I love playing volleyball any chance I get (sand, indoor, grass, you name it), it’s a huge passion of mine. I have a large family and enjoy spending time with them, especially when it’s a beautiful summer day at the Lake!
Travis has worked in home improvement, maintenance, property management and customer relations for the past 10 years prior to his work with Swim World. He looks forward to bringing his years of service experience to help the Spa and Pool service team become a well-oiled machine that continues to expand to other areas by having effective systems in place.
Travis always envisioned a life on the lake and is very happy to have settled down in one of his favorite vacation destinations. He moved here with his wife Ashley (our store manager) in 2016 to start a new chapter in their lives. He enjoys spending his free time wine tasting and enjoying beautiful Lake Chelan with his wife and their dog Ralphie.
