Meet the Staff


George Handy 1984

Shipping Manager

ALRIGHT! I started with Mountain Sports way back when it was still Southwest Canoe & Trail! I enjoy camping, hiking, kayaking, and bicycling, and have enjoyed many adventures with friends that I've met through work. I'm now helping the 3rd generation of families that have been loyal customers through the years. Quality equipment from Mountain Sports has accompanied me on trips from border to border, and coast to coast, and internationally, too. My current favorite piece of gear? That would be my Tilley hat. Stylish, functional and durable, if I'm out in the sun I try to have it on. Currently at Mountain Sports I handle the Internet sales & shipping, and anything else that needs doing. Still a fun job 31 years into it! #GeorgeFromMountainSports

Josh Walker 2007

General Manager

Outdoor Enthusiast, Husband, Father. Fishing has been my lifelong passion and I feel most at home on rivers. Currently I'm paddling the Jackson Kayak Mayfly which is by far the best kayak I've had to date. I loves the Frolf, mountain biking, backpacking, snowboarding, tying flies, leather craft, and cooking.

Josh Davis 2010


Gear Junkie and lover of all things outdoors. My first love started in 1993 when I began snowboarding in the Sierras of California. Fast forward 16 years, I moved to the great state of Texas with a strong love for camping, kayaking, hiking, backpacking, disc golf, fishing & rock climbing. In my down time I play as much disc golf as I can, I even joined the PDGA, #122417. My favorite pieces of gear are currently the Jackson Bite, Osprey Exos 58, and my Mint G.O.A.T. I have enjoyed incorporating any and all of these activities on annual trips with my wife since 2013.

Jeanette Hood 2012

Digital Assets Manager

Some things never change. Like love for the outdoors. I’m lucky that I was raised by avid outdoor enthusiasts, fishing and camping before I can even remember. Indiana summers meant hiking and boating as well, even though the season was short. These days my husband, Jeff, and I spend most of our time on the water in any number of kayaks, from 9-foot whitewater to 17-foot sea kayaks and everything in between. Combining camping and kayaking is what I love most, from the beaches in the Bahamas to the rocky rivers of Texas. If I’m not on the water, you’ll most likely find me in the desert on a backpacking trip.

Jules Swinney 2022

Sales Associate 

 I recently started working at Mountain Sports and have had a great experience doing so. I enjoy to spend time reading, hanging out with my cats, and going hiking with friends. I will be a senior in high school next semester, and truly have no idea what I'm going to do after. I love the earth and being outdoors!
