Linda J. Denison
Owner and operator of the Wind River Mercantile, Linda always seems to be gone, but she’s here… really… somewhere. A California native, she opened the store originally because after moving to Riverton in 1980 she was unable to get the healthy foods she was accustomed to, like brown rice and raw sunflower seeds. Things started very small, but thanks to her loyal customers Linda’s shop continues to grow. Linda is a Reiki master and teaches classes for all levels of students regularly.

Dedicated to health and happiness, Mary Ann has worked at the Wind River Merc for eight years. She loves hiking and other outdoor activities. When not retreating in the wilds of Wyoming or gardening like there is no tomorrow, she can be found babying her herd of Hereford and Angus cows.
On the job for 15 years, Jeanne is a technical specialist who can and does do just about anything you can imagine. If it involves, tools, ladders, paint, hardware, saws, or hammers, she is on the case. When she is not holding this place together, Jeanne enjoys knitting, crochet, painting, ceramics, and working in her garden.
While this full-time mom has only been working at the Wind River Merc for a year, she has become quite well-versed in health and wellness. She has developed an enthusiasm for flower essences and says she is learning more every day. When not on the job, Kaylee enjoys dance and native culture.
Daniel joined the Wind River crew in 1999. He is our resident artist, maintenance man, sprout and wheatgrass farmer, alchemist, Jungian dream interpreter, pirate, and horse whisperer. He describes himself as a well-groomed mountain man. Daniel is the creator of the secret garden (located conveniently at the back entrance of the shop).
“ No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
