Our Team

Christina Shepherd McGuire
Editor

As the managing editor for Grand Wedding and Teton Family Magazine, Christina aims to help women and families live a slower, healthier, and more fulfilling lifestyle. For her, that means helping you mindfully plan the biggest day of your life from her home office nestled among the Aspen trees. Married for almost twenty years herself, Christina believes love is a constant celebration, one that might begin while thumbing through the pages of this magazine, but is revisited throughout the years of developing a lifestyle together. Catch up with her here, on instagram @alifejustso, or at christinashepherdmcguire.com.

Copy Editor

After more than two decades in the valley, Jackson Hole magazine copy editor and New York native Pamela Periconi is confident she has officially lost her “dude” status. Besides her role as assistant editor at the Jackson Hole Daily for the last sixteen years, Pamela stays busy copyediting additional publications in the Teton Media Works family—including Teton Family magazine and Range—along with other area magazines and books. When not obsessing over proper comma placement, she enjoys running, watching birds, singing with her guitar, and shooting targets, preferably at long range.
