Who We Are

Hi I'm Caitlin.

Born and raised in Alaska, my parents were transplants who came up to Alaska for an adventure and never left. I grew up exploring the amazing backyard that Alaska has to offer – kayaking, hiking, climbing and skiing are some of my favorites. Over the years my love for this magical place has grown and I’m always in search of new places to explore. When I’m not out exploring, I indulge in yarn, paint and spending time with my hubby Chad, these rambunctious twins Arie and Jack and our pup Lulu. 

My journey with Denali Dreams started in high school labeling lip balms. Over the years I’ve worked in every position – learning to wrap, cut and make soap. When Barb and Janie, the Denali Dreams founders, were ready for their next adventure after 18 years of being in business, I was thrilled to keep the dream alive. I’m incredibly passionate about creating quality products that are great for your skin while incorporating a little piece of Alaska along the way. If you are ever in Anchorage, stop by our shop and say hi

The Dream Team


Ben migrated from Maryland and has taken up the art of slinging soap. He is our master creator in the kitchen and helps create all the products we have to offer. Occasionally we let him out of the kitchen to come up from to help with the store. Outside of getting greased up, Ben has a natural talent for capturing moments with his camera and fighting off the enemy while playing DOTA.



Hailing from the land of Illinois, Sydney first found his way up to Alaska through a seasonal job up in Denali. He is the newest member in the kitchen and is learning the ins and outs of helping craft the beginnings of all of our products. When Sydney isn’t studying for his Bachelors in Anthropology, he finds time to play D&D and snuggle with his cat, Moon. 


Have you called us lately? Well you might have talked to Raina. She is our new Shipper and Receiver but also helps with phone calls and assisting with finding you the perfect soap in the shop.  Newly married, she recently moved from sunny Florida to Alaska while her husband is stationed here at the military base. In her free time she is always eager to check out all the happenings in Anchorage, whether that’s a weekend market or a new shop that popped up. She also keeps the shop up to date on the best dating reality TV shows. 


Born and raised in Anchorage Samantha started working with the Dream Team in April of 2021. Since then she has learned the ins and outs of a handful of positions but has settled being our master soap cutter and groomer. If you pop into our store front she is the mastermind behind the beautiful displays. During her off time she enjoys, gaming, true crime and has an amazing green thumb! She can bring any plant back to life!


Al is one of the newest members of the Dream Team. She is a senior in high school and is always inquisitive about soap, the shop and any information she can get her hands on. She is slowly learning the various jobs of the front end of the shop but most recently has mastered packaging our gift packs. When she isn’t learning something new at the shop, she likes spending time with friends, being creative and going running. 


We were lucky enough to add Minessa to the team earlier this year. A sister to Al, these two are quite the duo and have been recently learning the ins and outs of how to provide stellar customer service. Minessa is a quick study and has picked up on soap wrapping and recently gave our soap wrapping machine a go. Let me tell you she was a natural! When she isn’t helping us around the shop she likes to learn about makeup and draw.


Toni, the helping hands behind the bath bombs. She has got an eye for perfection and puts love into each one of those relaxing bombs. Outside of being the bomb master, she is always thinking of creative ways to lift up those in her life. Whether it’s socializing her pup Bernard, or helping her kiddos explore their curiosities she can make anyone shine. Toni enjoys a good laugh and always has a new podcast to share.
