Our Founders

Chris & Stacy Thornley had no intention of starting a company. Seriously, it was an accident! Stacy wanted to help their daughter's dry skin condition, so she concocted a healing salve known as Squirrel's Nut Butter (SNB). It was only later that they discovered the salve's superior anti-chafe powers. They wanted to share it with the world, and SNB was formed.

Stacy is a wound care nurse with a passion for skin health. She is the mastermind behind our products. Stacy engineered versions of our current products from the kitchen in her home. She continues to brainstorm new ideas and spread the SNB love. 

Chris is an energetic tradesman who has spent significant amounts of his life rock climbing, running rivers, running trails and sailing. His seven winter solo raft trips through Grand Canyon on the Colorado River constitute some of his most outstanding achievements. Chris is also a volunteer with Coconino County Sheriff's Search and Rescue. He manages the day-to-day operations at SNB with a smile on his face and tireless energy to spread brand awareness around the globe. 

Happie and Tanner hang with Chris each day at the office and usually join him at most of the events that he attends. Timber (see below) was a wild squirrel that was rescued and released back into the wild after 55 days of care. Timber and Happie were best buddies!
