OWNER GRAYSTONE FURNITURE

INDUSTRY: RETAIL

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT THE HELM?

“I opened Graystone in 2002, so I’m in my 15th year.”

WHAT IS THE TOWN OF TAOS DOING RIGHT FOR BUSINESS?

“How do I nicely say that the town leaves me alone? For that I am thankful.”

WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER YOUR GREATEST ACHIEVEMENT?

“Moving to Taos was first on my list. Creating a livelihood offering products as dramatic as Taos itself was my next achievement. Turning that livelihood into a business that employs others and supports the community is my greatest achievement. I couldn’t do any of it without help.”

WHO ARE YOUR HEROES IN REAL LIFE?

“Taos is full of my heroes: Lucy Whyte Ferguson, chiropractor who keeps me upright; Joy Dillingham, spiritual teacher; and Trudy Valerio Healy, activist with more than a decade serving on the New Mexico Water Trust Board. I have heroes more famous, but no more important.”
