Whitney is youngest daughter of an entrepreneur. Her father started a boat cover & upholstery business in 1972, when Whitney could walk, she went with him on jobs. Whitney was 16 when she started running her dad’s business in Vermont while he played Ukulele with Tyson’s dad during California winters. By the time she turned 25, she had built a house, started her own business specializing in boat covers, but she didn’t want to just repeat her father’s success so she moved to California and started another successful boat cover business called Even Keel Canvas. Whitney started working for Aloha Doors & Gates in 2012, managing accounting, filing and reconciling. Gradually, Whitney learned everything she needed to know to run a company, and more importantly, what not to do. Whitney successfully re-structured the company in 2014, creating a small, but professionally managed business structure to match the quality of workmanship that Tyson had been providing for 10 years. Similar to Tyson, Whitney has mastered many trades, she also does estimating, and manages all of Aloha Doors large projects, thanks to her, all Tyson has to do is work, and thanks to Tyson, Whitney never has to do quality control.
