Taiviahn Kelly

Lead Pool Technician

Taiviahn, pronounced Tie-vee-on (but feel free to call him Tai, like "tie"), is one of our newest crew members. While he might be new here, he's no rookie when it comes to pools! With over three years of experience, Tai started his pool journey in sunny Florida with a company named Flamingo Pools. Yep, you heard that right—Flamingo Pools! How's that for a splash of irony? When Tai stumbled upon our job posting, it was like the pool gods aligned—pure kismet.

Tanner Martin

Pool Care Technician

Meet Tanner, another new addition to the Pink Flamingo Crew and we are thrilled to have him! Tanner graduated from USC Lancaster and then pursued a career in logistics. How's that for some more irony? Lauren and Dana met while working in the field of logistics and Dana left that field to start Pink Flamingo! It's a lot more fun being in the sun than stuck in a cubicle for sure! 

Tanner hails from Clover, SC and he has a bachelors degree in XXXX USC Lancaster. He loves making music and so you might see him humming along to some good tunes when taking care of your pool. 

 

Tanner also played soccer for USC Lancaster. He loves the sport and also roots for Messi. Mordecai said that he couldn't join the crew if he rooted for Rinaldo.

Jeremiah Pride

Pool Care Technician

Jeremiah is one of our newest and youngest members of the crew. You wouldn't know it by talking to him though. This guy is smart and polite! He recently graduated from Rock Hill High School where he played on the varsity soccer team. Upon discovering that he was super smart, polite, fun, and also a fantastic soccer player - we knew he had to join the crew. We might just have to start our own soccer club with all of these awesome athletes! Don't worry, they hit the field way after the pools are done for the day.

OUR FOUNDER

Dana Christensen

Lauren's husband, Dana Christensen, founded Pink Flamingo Pool Company in 2020 after a long and successful career in logistics. A true California dude and UC Santa Barbara graduate, Dana always had a pool growing up and would stay in until he turned into a prune. During the pandemic, he decided to turn his lifelong love for water into his profession. Thanks to Dana's dedication and hard work, Pink Flamingo thrived.

 

Sadly, Dana passed away unexpectedly in 2022. Since then, Lauren has taken the helm, supported by Tyler, Dale, and the fantastic Pink Flamingo crew. We're sure Dana is beaming with pride at how his pandemic brainchild has blossomed into a roaring success, bringing joy and poolside fun to many.

 

Dana loved water so much he practically had gills, and his legacy continues to float on, one pink flamingo pool float at a time. His spirit lives on in every splash and every smile, ensuring that fun remains at the heart of Pink Flamingo Pool Company.

Stay Cool, We've got your Pool.
