Our Team



Callie England, President

Previously founding a plant-based food company, my roots in the natural health space run deep. WallyGro is my continued commitment to sustainability, holistic living, and social entrepreneurism. When I'm not nurturing my interior urban garden, you can find me in my studio painting, playing fetch with my pups, or breaking a sweat cycling.

Elise Grosdidier, Brand Relationship Manager

Since childhood, I've always been fascinated by how plants thrive and benefit our overall well-being. Living and earning my MBA in Germany increased my interest in holistic living, as the Europeans taught me a great deal on how to cultivate a wholesome life in simple living arrangements. When I'm not with plants, you can find me at a local winery or scoping out my next travel destination.

Davey Kusek, E-Commerce Manager

I was born and raised in Kansas City, and have spent my entire professional career in the e-commerce world. When I'm not trying to improve your online experience, I'm relaxing with family or cheering on Sporting KC.


Madison Crabtree, Designer & Copywriter

I’m an illustrator and designer living in Kansas City with a BFA in Illustration and Creative Writing from KCAI (’17). At WallyGro, I'm broadening my knowledge of design & plants simultaneously. My passions include concept art, tabletop gaming, animal rescue, and classic Japanese sports cars.

Austin Chapman, Designer

I’m a designer and illustrator and I’ve just recently finished my degree from the Kansas City Art Institute. Since joining the WallyGro team, I’ve developed an infatuation with houseplants and their unique personalities. Aside from drawing, I also enjoy collecting kitsch and mid-century antiques.

Joe Claxton, Shipping Manager

I have worked with WallyGro for five wonderful years. Born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri. Go Royals!
