Meet the team

Our crew is what makes ShortStack awesome. We’re pros, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

Rina Bottom

Customer Success Agent

Rina is the newest member of the ShortStack crew and spends her days fearlessly helping users on the “frontlines.” Similar to the rest of the team, Rina has a diverse background, which includes a bachelor’s degree in psychology. As a dog and cat mom, nature lover, and all-around like-able gal, she’s a natural fit here at ShortStack.

Bunny Churchill

Office Manager

Doug’s other half, Bunny, is our office manager and in charge of HR. She gives the ShortStack office the touch of fabulous most SaaS offices don’t have. With experience in various fields, from personal wardrobe stylist to teaching kindergarten, Bunny brings style, comfort, organization and warmth to the ShortStack office. Bunny helps us with everything from navigating our insurance coverage to bringing in blankets when the office is chilly. She’s our mom away from mom and an integral part of the ShortStack workplace culture.

Doug Churchill

Co-Founder, Leader

Doug oversees the vision and strategic direction of the company. Over the last decade, ShortStack has grown from an in-house solution for client projects to a trusted platform for brands and agencies around the globe.

Jessica Miller

Jessica Miller-McNatt

Client Relations Strategist

Jessica’s chipper disposition has helped her fill multiple rolls at ShortStack. You may have heard her voice in a YouTube video, seen her on a live training, or chatted with her in support. Her cheery nature combined with her knowledge of ShortStack will surely make her newest role as a member of the sales team a natural fit. Since relocating to Georgia, Jessica’s weekends are filled with the three B’s – eating BBQ, sippin’ beer, and hanging in the backyard with her family.

Adam Pedigo

Software Developer

Adam is the latest addition to our team of engineers. He spends his days helping develop new features as well as suss out bugs. With his Computer Science degree from Oregon State University and five years of experience as a full stack developer, he brings a valuable perspective to our well-rounded group.
