People of Montecito: Michaela Donahue
Where Are You From and What Do You Do?
I’m from Colorado, originally. I’ve been in California for 10 years and Santa Barbara for six. Growing up in a small town in Colorado, I didn’t think that existed in California. I thought it was all big city and hustle-bustle.
I’ve been with Wendy Foster/Pierre Lafond for four years and I’m the brand director for the Montecito, Santa Barbara, and Los Olivos locations. Which means I weathered the fires and mudslides with this company. Right now, I’m shooting images for our website, and we’ve got a lot of great product to shoot. We’re creating a shopping experience for our customers to shop all of our locations online. This is a service that we have never offered before, so it’s been a wild, yet rewarding ride to take our business online and assist customers virtually.
