After spending more than five years as Creative Director of a leading event-planning firm, Kelsey Sheofsky realized that she could get more people “into the wild” while still being able to plan lavish events if she started her own company. This led her to launch San Francisco-based Shelter Co.
, a luxury camping outfitter with her husband in April 2012. Shelter Co. plans high-end outdoor excursions that range from couples’ getaways to 200-person corporate retreats, and everything in between.
When not setting up camp, Sheofsky spends a lot of time traveling the California coast with her husband, daughter, and dog looking for new locations for future clients and exploring all that her home state has to offer. She is a Mexican-food junkie and flea market lover and is always looking for new treasures to add to the Shelter Co. inventory or to the shelves of her own home in the Mission.
