Meet Lani, Our Operations Manager

Today marks twelve months for Lani at Merchants of The Sun and her first sick day *cough cough* 

Unfortunately, she isn't here to revel in her greatness with us, so we invite you to do so instead. 

Lani is the oil that keeps this machine moving, and the glue that holds us together.  Her smile is the first smile we see in the morning and it's a smile that's enough to brighten anyone's day. She oozes sunshine, positivity and kindness and she truely has unique soul. 

Everyone - Meet Lani, our wondrous Operations Manager.

I love going to the beach in the afternoons for sunset; that's where I feel the most relaxed, and I love the sound of the ocean and the energy on dusk.

Hang out with Talon, go to the beach, exercise and just enjoy some downtime.

I worked for Yoli and Otis, and before that, Santos.

Quality, and sustainability.
