Alexa Calio - Owner
In June 2010, long-time Bozeman business woman Alexa Calio purchased Refuge Sustainable Building Center. In March 2017, Refuge became The Healthy Home to better convey the values and aims of the business. Alexa graduated with a degree in Wildlife Biology in Virginia and worked in the field in Minnesota, then moved to Montana to conduct research in Yellowstone park. During the 18 years that she lived in Gardiner, she built a log home from the ground up. After finishing the chinking portion of the project and "swearing never to touch the stuff again," she founded Roche Jaune, Inc., Chinking and Plaster Specialists. Many large and small, fine and rustic jobs later, Alexa moved her family and business to Bozeman. Alexa continues to use her skills in chinking and plaster application, and is available for residential and commercial projects.
Dana Williams - Store Manager
Dana moved to Bozeman in 2011, after living for years in eastern states and Canada. She has a varied background in journalism (newspaper, magazine, and video production) and ecology. She has managed several media enterprises, including HGTV Online, taught college courses in Environmental Science and Ecology, and did state-wide public policy work in water and land resource management. She founded and managed a retail store in Georgia, where she sold a variety of eco-friendly, natural and organic products for the home. Dana recently supervised the construction of a small home for herself here in Bozeman, using products from The Healthy Home. She has also remodeled three other homes, and has a penchant and passion for interior design. Since taking the helm as manager in 2016, she has done outside sales and implemented big changes at the store, including helping to re-brand the company in 2017, expand product lines, and re-design the store with new signage and displays.
