Meet the Great Employees of Our Outdoor Gear Store in Casper, WY

One of the Gear Up philosophies is that a fun workplace is a happy workplace for both the employees and the customers! And with the current staff at Gear Up, there is never a dull moment.

Kristin Wilson, Manager

What I love to do in the outdoors is mountain biking, hiking, skiing, wakeboarding and surfing with my family!

Kim Bartz, Assistant Manager

I truly enjoy gardening. I plant all sorts of vegetables and make lots of salsa, spaghetti sauce & pickles. When I am in the outdoors I like going camping with my tiny house (fifth wheel). Last year we took the tiny house to the Grand Canyon and hiked, hiked, hiked, and took in the beautiful country.


Sierra Wilson

Growing up we were outside constantly, my parents managed to get me and my 2 siblings hooked on snowboarding, snowshoeing, hiking, mountain biking, wake surfing, and four wheeling. Some of our favorite places to send’er include Red Lodge, Targhee, and Moab. There is never a dull moment!

Tia Leschin, Bike Expert/Mechanic

My love for bikes started as a kid with a 1970 Radio Flyer 16 inch red tricycle. Me and my trike cruised the neighborhood racing my brothers up and down the street. My brothers taught me how to turn wrenches on my own bikes and in 2007 I received certification as a Professional Bicycle Technician and Bike Shop Operator. I’ve been in the industry ever since. With 12 years experience in professional bicycle repair and shop operation in Montana and Wyoming I’ve seen a lot of different types of bikes roll through the doors. My three favorite things to do are riding bikes, wrenching on bikes and getting other people on bikes…..I Love Bikes!
