Home / Our Founders

Chris & Stacy Thornley had no intention of starting a company. Seriously, it was an accident. Stacy simply wanted to help their daughter's dry skin condition, so she concocted a healing salve that is now 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 then formed.

Stacy is an allergy 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 trails, running rivers and sailing. His four, month-long solo rafting trips through the Grand Canyon constitute some of his greatest achievements. He manages the day-to-day operations at SNB with a smile on his face.

Stacy & Chris call Flagstaff, Arizona home and when they aren't creating new salve recipes and sharing their passion with others, they're usually spending time with their kids, Sariah and Landon, or walking their dogs, Happie and Tanner.
