Samantha Donohue

She loves to build and implement innovation solutions to pesky business problems, which has led to notable custom projects with StitchLabs, Disco, Loop among others. Evy’s Tree has used Shopify for over 4 years, was an early adopter of the Shopify Plus platform, and has also been covered in three Shopify global case studies. On a personal note, Samantha could survive just about anything with her husband Patrick, her three tween children, her Marmot jacket and Hydroflask water bottle.

Frank Schwartz

Having spent two decades in the high tech halls of Silicon Valley, Frank Schwartz and his wife, Kitty Wells, decided to pursue their passion for natural products. In 2010, they formed Spice Pharm to monetize that vision through e-commerce. Frank has deep background in web design, networks, server backends, and security.

In 2015, they decided to port Spice Pharm to Shopify using the One Stop Shop template enhanced with 3rd party Shopify apps. Frank learned Liquid and has significantly customized Spice Pharm’s e-store.
