Our Team

Raenie Clark

Raenie Clark

General Manager

rclark@hlc-inc.com

Raenie started out in customer service with Gualala Building Supply in 2009. Today, she still considers customer service her primary role, but as the store manager, she also tackles the logistics of keeping things running smooth. As a lifelong resident of the community, she is easy to talk with about life on the coast. When she’s not working hardware and lumber sales, she is spending time with her children at her home in Annapolis, or seeing things through the eye of her camera lens. Say hello when you stop by.

Christina is our assistant manager who has been a resident of Point Arena since 2001. Her dad, Joseph Chavez, is a long time employee of GBS and a great resource for building knowledge. When Christina isn’t helping to guide a customer to what they are looking for, she spends time teaching native American youth about their ancestry, including lessons on how to learn from the land, fishing and basket weaving. Christina is looking forward to helping you find what you need.

Natalie is one of our newer customer service reps and also hails from the coast where she spent 3.5 years working retail in the local market. She grew up in Manchester where her father worked as a commercial fisherman. Her background on everything fishing related extends beyond the boat and the rigging and gives her a special appreciation for seafood. When she’s not helping a customer, she is off to visit with family in Sacramento. Let her know how she can help find what you’re looking for.
