Meet the Ridge Family

Heath Sullivan

"Heath is almost always working behind-the-scenes and on other responsibilities, but can sometimes be found making the staff laugh in store or bringing us food! :) Heath is a Cleveland native who enjoys challenging workouts, water sports, ATV riding, and hiking. He is currently training for a 10 mile obstacle course race."

Tasha Sullivan

"While most often working behind-the-scenes, Tasha can also be found in store daily helping customers and conversing with staff.Tasha grew up in an outdoor-loving family, often hiking and swimming at the Ocoee's Blue Hole as a child. Tasha enjoys hiking, Crossfit, snow skiing, water sports, and equestrian activities. She welcomes you to come chat with her anytime or send an email to!"


"Growing up exploring and appreciating the outdoors, nature became an important part of my life. From rock climbing, to trail running, to fly fishing, I have always found nature to be captivating. Working at Ridge allows me to utilize my passions about the outdoors and Christian faith by connecting with people everyday on a spiritual and fulfilling level- while also equipping them to explore our beautiful Tennessee mountains!"  


"Hey I am Rachel, I just started at Ridge and it is awesome! I love the people and the environment.  If you are looking for an outdoor community with a passion to serve then look no further.  Welcome to the Ridge." 


"I have always felt as though the good Lord has called me to help people seek His kingdom. When I am at Ridge Outfitters, working or hanging out, I feel like I am fulfilling that calling. Ridge fills my heart with greater joy that I love to exude on other people. RO is a huge blessing unto me."

One Item I Will Never Hit The Trail Without

I have been on many trails and spent many a night in the woods.  I have used many types of gear and pride myself on always being prepared.  I am also a nut for DIY tips and tricks that you can make out of cheap supplies.  However, I was humbled the other day when a customer came into our Cleveland store.
