Meet the Team

Jessi Burg

Founder

My name is Jessi Burg, and I am the founder of Outgrow Your Garage. I received my Bachelor’s Degree from St Lawrence University, and my Master’s in Environmental Leadership from Naropa University. I built Outgrow Your Garage around my passion for accessible, affordable learning and inclusivity in the business world. Before Outgrow Your Garage I ran a landscaping company for 5 years, and as a result I believe that the trades and services are often left behind in policy, business development, and education. Founding Outgrow Your Garage is helping further my advocacy work for those areas using my personal experiences and steadfast passion for small business support.

Fun Fact
  • I love to do the New York Times Crossword Puzzle every day.

Kelly Sullivan

Sales and Marketing Director

My name is Kelly Sullivan! I graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Communications. I believe strongly in powerful communication tactics – the problem-solving process behind effective communication strategies drives and inspires me. I am dedicated to producing the highest quality product in the most efficient way possible. I joined Outgrow Your Garage because compassion and empathy for others fuels my passion for small business advocacy. I believe in building a consistently trustworthy brand that stems confidence in our clients’ decisions about our company, as well as their own.

Fun Fact
  • I love to snowboard and travel the world.

Taryn Shaw

Operations Manager

I am Taryn Shaw! I studied at Florida Southwestern State College before moving to Colorado. My attention to detail and strong organizational skills fuel my reputation as a powerhouse team-player. I worked in the office and in the field for Jessi’s previous landscaping business, which opened my eyes to how trades and services businesses are often underserved and lacking in business development opportunities. I joined Outgrow Your Garage because I am passionate about learning new skills, which in turn allow me to help and empower others in their professional lives. My goal is to help others realize their full business potential.

Fun Fact
  • I love to adventure in the mountains with my dogs and learn about local plants.
