Emilee Ballard

Emilee was born and raised in northern Utah where she spent her summers hiking, mountain biking, and camping and her winters skiing and snowboarding. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies with a minor in Business emphasizing in Human Resources from Utah State University. Her love for outdoor recreation led her to southern Utah where she lived for 10 years. Emilee is passionate about the red rock deserts of southern Utah where she continued expanding her outdoor recreation talents to include rafting, kayaking, and her true love of canoeing.

Emilee earned a Master of Public Administration degree from Southern Utah University, where she also worked as the Director of Event and Parking Services. It was during this time that she developed a niche for employee engagement and a progressive leadership style. These formative moments led her to Jackson, Wyoming to work as the Director of Human Resources at Snow King Mountain Resort from 2019 to 2023 where she was known as the “mom” of the Mountain.

Emilee joined Top Shelf Collective in April 2023 and is excited to be a part of a team who values strong employee engagement where she can use her unique skills to nurture company culture while continuing with her leadership development. Beyond work, Emilee is dedicated to her family and is beyond excited to have three of her adult children working and living in Jackson where they can enjoy the outdoors together.
