The Team Clavey Crew
Our Team Clavey crew of guides, instructors, and in-store staff are exceptional and you’ll enjoy spending time with them whether you’re calling us directly, shopping in our store, paddling on a tour, or participating in a class.
Jeff Kellogg – As the owner of Clavey Paddlesports Jeff’s days can include everything from rigging the trailer for the next kayak/sup adventure to paying the bills. He’ll jump at any opportunity to get away from his desk to help our customers find and choose the perfect boat, board and accessories. His favorite pastimes are paddling anything that floats, spending time with his family, and making his mountain bike go as fast as possible down single tracks in the backyard.
Anne Kellogg – On the water or in the store Anne has a passion for helping our customers to get on the water! Her sales approach is complimented by her background in teaching a variety of outdoor activities and sports to adults and kids. She’s certified by the World Standup Paddleboard Association and as a physical educator and enjoys teaching stand up paddling. When Anne is not out on the water teaching or working in the store you’ll find her on paddling adventures with her family.
Scott Terriberry – has been a sea kayak guide for 18 years working the waters from Alaska and British Columbia to Baja Mexico. He is A.C.A. trained, W.F.R certified and has taught many classes from beginners to advanced expedition paddlers. He has taught college courses in the San Juans, Tide and Current classes at the Golden Gate, and expedition travel in Mexico and British Columbia. Scott is one of the founders of Point Reyes Outdoors, a sea kayak touring company in Point Reyes Station.
Raini Kellogg - is a kayak guide on many of our tours, and instructor for summer kayak and SUP camps. She’s certified in First Aid and CPR and has completed kayak on-water rescue classes. As soon as she could walk Raini started rafting and kayaking by riding in the front hatch of Jeff’s kayak. By the time she was 10 years old Raini was in her own kayak and soon after stand up paddleboarding. She’s currently a student at Humboldt State University. In her spare time she enjoys reading, listening to music, and participating in other outdoor activities.
Ryan Bruce – joined our Team Clavey Crew in 2014. He’s an all-around-kind-of-guy who works in the Clavey store, guides on many of our kayak tours as well as assists with kid’s summer kayak and SUP camps. A graduate of Sonoma State University, Ryan earned a degree in Environmental Studies and Planning with a concentration in Outdoor Leadership. He’s certified as an EMT and Wilderness First Responder, and has completed on water rescue training. Ryan’s enthusiasm for the outdoors (and life in general) will help to make your kayak tour or in-store shopping a delightful experience.
Stephanie Cleaves – If you shop at the Clavey store on the weekends you are most certain to meet Stephanie who can assist you with all things paddling. Stephanie also assists in the field with our kid’s summer kayak and SUP camps, special events, and as a guide-in-training on our Bioluminescence Kayak Tours on Tomales Bay. When not working at Clavey, Stephanie attends Sonoma State University and is working towards a degree in Marine Biology. She’s been a great edition to our Team Clavey Crew and we hope she sticks around after she graduates.
Kristine Norton - A lifetime outdoor enthusiast, Kristine has been kayaking on Tomales Bay and surrounding waterways since 2005. She’s certified in First Aid and CPR and has completed on-water rescue training. When not paddling Kristine enjoys spending time with her family and friends, attending school, or enjoying her other hobbies of cycling, snowboarding, and hiking.
Patrick Norton – Raised by coyotes in the hills of western Sonoma County, Patrick brings an interesting element to our team. He has an innate understanding of the natural history of the area, and instincts for survival. Be careful with any treats you bring along on your trip, as his sense of smell is keen, and his appetite insatiable. When not working deep undercover as a private detective he can be found literally moonlighting on Tomales Bay.
Chandell Beeson – an experienced kayak guide on both Tomales Bay and Lake Tahoe, she loves to share her enthusiasm for the outdoors and passion for conservation efforts. Chandell is continually inspired to keep coming back year after year to guide on Tomales bay because there’s always something new to see and she enjoys getting people out from their work and daily life routines to give them a fun and educational experience they will remember for years. When not in a kayak or on a paddleboard Chandell also works part time as a Certified Massage Therapist.
Tom Meckfessel – is one of the original partners of Clavey but is no longer involved with day-to-day operations. You can still find Tom cooking the best paella any Spaniard ever dreamed of with his catering business Paella Del Reyes.
