Meet our Brand Reps 

Darian Petker

My name is Darian and I am the owner, maker and designer behind cowbows. I am a mama to a little boy and twin girls. My husband and I own farmland just outside of Rosemary, Alberta. With a passion for farming and the western lifestyle, I am obsessed with all things country, vintage and of course, cowhide. 

Natasha Teri

I have a serious love for animals, art and the cowboy way. I spend just about all my time looking between the earrs of a horse and cussing at cattle. My right hand gal is a very opinionated, little Jack Russell I call Allie-May. Graphic tees, good jeans, a touch of turquoise and a pair of sneaks is what you'll usually find me kicking around in. I live for hot summer days and spending time with my crew of animals and peeps. I'm excited to be a part of the Rustic Rose team and look forward to working with all of these badass chicks. 

Sarah Byrne

Hi friends! My name is Sarah and I’m your typical animal obsessed gal. I grew up in the city, but thanks to 4-H I discovered my passion for livestock and rodeo at an early age. As soon as I was done high school I ran to the prairies and I haven’t looked back since! I love getting the chance to get out and do some farm work now and then, especially if it involves cows and horses. Because I don’t own my own farm, and don’t rodeo myself, I tend to rely on Western Fashion to make me feel more connected to the industry. I’ll take any excuse to bust out some fringe or turquoise, and I’m very used to being the most overdressed person in the room. I strongly believe you don’t necessarily need to be a riding, roping, yeehaw hollering son of a gun in order to be a real cowgirl, and I love getting the opportunity to show off my personal cowgirl style.
I’m so excited to be a brand rep for Rustic Rose and join such a cool girl gang of cowgirls from all walks of life!

Esther Funk

Hey all, my name is Esther. I’m a prairie girl, born & raised in rural Manitoba and more recently living and living rural life in Alberta - Wild Rose Country. I love all things local, anything with cinnamon, coffee makes my world go ‘round, and if horses are involved you can talk me into almost anything!
I work as a Registered Nurse in a small rural hospital where we do everything from deliver babies to emergency room nursing. I love being busy so this suits me well!  My hobby and true passion is barrel racing. I own 3 gorgeous horses and 1 loyal dog. I am so excited for the opportunity to represent Rustic Rose, share my love of rural life, and support a local female entrepreneur.

Katarina Abts

Hey guys! My name is Katarina Abts. I’m 23 years old and am a Labor and Delivery Registered Nurse by trade. Being a nurse the schedule is very forgiving and I am left with plenty of off time to venture often and explore new places.
I was born and raised in Colorado. I grew up in a small town always around livestock, although my family never owned a large amount. We called our place the funny farm with horses, lambs, rabbits, chickens and other animals here and there in between. In my off time you can find me in the practice arena or at a local team roping jackpot. 
Although I love my career it is a dream of mine to own some cattle someday. I have so much respect for all farmers and ranchers that make it possible for us to live a comfortable life.
I am so grateful to be able to represent an amazing brand like Rustic Rose and everything that it stands for!

Taylor McWilliam

My name is Taylor McWilliam, but a lot of people call me Toad. I grew up on a grain farm near Blackie, Alberta and am still very involved with the farm today. My favourite time of year on the farm is seeding and harvest. I am a summer gal who LOVES her mini pigs, chickens, cats, and other critters. (I spend a lot of time thrifting as well ;)) I also look forward to the slowness of winter as it lets me enjoy my other passion, travelling. I love exploring new places but these Alberta prairies will always have my heart. I am very excited to work with Rustic Rose as they reflect the same support for Agriculture, female empowerment, and love for punchy homegrown love for western fashion.  

Kelsey Jakobsen

I was born and raised out on a farm in Tilley where we grew wheat, canola and alfalfa seed (amongst other things). I’ve since moved away from the farm and am living in Lethbridge but still get back out there to visit often!

I’m a bit of a sarcastic goof ball and struggle keeping a straight face in most of my photo shoots. I just love to laugh. My full time job is as a medical laboratory technologist at the hospital! I specialize in transfusion medicine so if you got questions about blood types, I’m yo girl. 

I’m so excited to bring my love of fringe and turquoise to the rustic rose team and can’t wait to see where this opportunity takes me!

Jillian Keeley

My name is Jillian Keeley I was born in Lethbridge Alberta, raised in Whitewood SK. I’ve been raised in the ranch/rodeo community, and rodeo has always been an important part of my life. Western fashion has also been a passion and something I’ve always been interested in. I’m currently in school to become a police officer it has been a life long dream of mine. I can’t  wait to show case some of thee cutest pieces from Rustic Rose. 

Taylor Karl

I’m a wife and mom of 2 boys who are aged 3yrs and 5months. My family and I live in Alberta, Canada and are in the process of building our forever ranch house in Longview, AB. My husband previously owned and ran an outfitting company and is now ranching. We love the western lifestyle and raising our boys to get dirty and work hard.

I am excited to continue to work with Rustic Rose, I love everything this brand stands for! 


Talissa Munce

Hey y’all! I’m Talissa Munce and I am currently living in Lethbridge, Alberta! I have been studying Agriculture Science at Lethbridge College. I’m from a 5 generation grain farm outside of Lacombe, Alberta. I love the farm life, riding horses, fishing and being a photographer on the side!  I’m super grateful and excited to represent Rustic Rose and there style for the farming, ranching and rodeo women out there! 

Madi Pahl

Madi is 23 and grew up on a ranch just outside of Medicine Hat where they run purebred angus and hereford cattle. Believe it or not, the western lifestyle has not always been what she identified with. From grade 5 to 12 she was barely interested in the ranch and wanted to move as far away as possible. What brought her back is the relationships she has made through ranching and western fashion. Agriculture has always been a big part of her life but it took the last 6 years to really appreciate the beauty and fulfillment the lifestyle offers. Now you can catch her moving cows with her dad after she finishes her day job and watching her pals rodeo on the weekends. She is so grateful to be a part of this community and the Rustic Rose family. Madi says Rustic Rose has helped bring her back to her roots through western style and she will forever be thankful for that. 

Victoria VanDerZwan

My three main titles are Mother, Wife and Ranch owner, Following in the footsteps of influential pioneering women before me. 
I am so thrilled to be a part of the Rustic Rose clan of brand reps, what an incredible opportunity! 
Whilst my style isn’t the punchiest of them all, I’m a die hard lover of ALL things western inspired when it comes to cowgirl fashion and will pull out all the stops for a signature look!
