Meet Kristan Haver of Ark Valley Baby Equipment Rentals in Salida

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristan Haver.

Kristan, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started my career in the medical field and just as excited as I was to be helping others and doing my passion, I had a job offer come up I couldn’t refuse. I accepted it and became a nanny to a well known Hollywood couple, Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas. Next thing I knew I was traveling all over with them and helping with their sweet girl Stella. I was very fortunate to do this for ten years. After nannying I pursued the medical field again. After a few years in the medical field and then getting pregnant, my career shifted again and that’s where Ark Valley Baby Equipment Rentals was created. I decided I wanted to start my own business and be a stay at home mom. I realized after becoming a mom and being a nanny just how hard it can be traveling with a little one. That’s why I started Ark Valley Baby Equipment Rentals to help serve those traveling with little ones and make their time away more enjoyable.

Has it been a smooth road?
No! I’m not sure any road is smooth, but I like the challenge. I created this business all on my own and I’m proud of that. I have learned so much and continue to learn every day. Creating my website, to figure out what kind of inventory I need. What kind of gear are families looking for when they are traveling with little ones? It’s all been a learning process.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Ark Valley Baby Equipment Rentals story. Tell us more about the business.
