A Family-Owned Business

Taos Rockers is the creation of owners Anne Brenner and Cortney Stewart, in business in Taos, New Mexico, since 2008. 

Both Cortney and Anne are Taoseños - Anne’s family started residency in Taos in the late 1890’s, while Cortney’s parents didn’t start dancing on tables at the Taos Inn until the late 1940’s. Both graduated from Taos High School and re-met at their 30th class reunion. Taos Rockers celebrated its fifteenth anniversary October 15, 2023. 


Cortney Stewart (left) earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology (and Biology) from NM Tech. He has 35 years of experience as a mineral landman and has traveled extensively across the western US. He is a lifetime member of the New Mexico Geological Society, a Friend of the Mineral Museum (NM Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources), and a member of the Albuquerque Gem & Mineral Club and the Los Alamos Geological Society. At an early age in his career, he contracted gold fever – fortunately it remains in remission.

Anne Brenner (right) earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance & Banking from Southern Methodist University (SMU Dallas). She has 38years of experience in private practice as a property manager (Real Estate Broker) and in custodial accounting. Prior to establishing Taos Rockers with Cortney, Anne thought gemstones came from Tiffany’s. She has since dug her own gemstones, had them cut and set in jewelry and can be seen wearing those stones in the shop.
