Shane Dathe

Operations Director


Shane has a degree in construction management from the University of Florida in Gainesville – Go Gators! After working for a professional builder in Florida for 9 years, he was spending too much time in the office and not enough time in the field, so he decided to go out on his own and spent the next several years doing freelance handyman and carpentry work before finding his way to Lutheranch. What began as volunteer work soon became a fulltime job and he found himself packing his bags and moving to Georgia to manage the Lutheranch property. A resourceful problem solver, Shane can fix or build just about anything needed around the 500+ acre site. In his free time, he enjoys being outdoors; fishing, mountain biking, and participating in outdoor motor sports such as motocross racing and snowmobiling.
