The Team

Leanne Pawluk, General Manager

Leanne has hospitality in her DNA. Her family owned and operated the prestigious Rimrock Resort Hotel in Banff, Alberta, for more than three decades, She has had an eclectic career in communications and high tech, and even once wrote speeches delivered at the White House.

Now she focuses her time and creativity on refreshing the Inn and providing a welcome, rustic and refined experience for guests and visitors. The bright and airy “breath of fresh air” nuances around the property have her touch.

John Schmidt, Operations Manager

Before recruiting his wife, John was inspired by the Inn’s organic philosophy and brought his more than 25 years of experience sourcing organic and natural products directly to the Pippin Market.

His experience in the grocery and natural food business took his career through Starbucks, Nature’s Fare and Choice’s Markets, and he has firmly planted relationships with suppliers and growers. He is deeply engaged in stocking the market fridges and displays, and is a craft beer aficionado pursuing beer master cicerone certification.
