Susan and Darrell McGowan



Hello! We are Susan and Darrell McGowan, Owners of Gotcha Covered Reno!

Susan McGowan - I have spent years creating beautiful and functional spaces. As the child of a military family, and as a military member myself, I have had many opportunities to decorate and redecorate. Over time, combining beauty and functionality became second nature. Professionally, I spent decades in software development providing creative solutions to technical problems. With Gotcha Covered, I get to meld together my technical expertise with my passion for beautiful design by creating gorgeous window treatments that enhance both the aesthetics and functionality of a room. I am also a Hunter Douglas Certified Consultant having completed their extensive qualifying program.

Darrell McGowan - I have been a business owner for many years and excel at providing an exceptional customer experience. My main focus with Gotcha Covered is to find perfect window treatment solutions for our customers’ homes and workplaces and ensure a wonderful working relationship that continues long after the job is completed.

We both returned to Reno, Nevada a few years back after both of our careers had taken us elsewhere. Darrell is a fifth generation Nevadan from Yerington. Susan was born overseas and moved frequently with her military family, but often visited her grandparents and extended family in the Reno and Sparks areas. When the opportunity arose to return to the Reno area, we both jumped at the chance. We are thrilled to once again call Reno, Nevada our home!

When not working, we love to get out and enjoy some of the many exciting community events such as the Reno Rodeo, Hot August Nights, and the Nugget Rib Cook-off! We also enjoy frequenting the 4th Street Bistro and the Revision Brewing Company.

While our own children are now young adults, we still find ourselves refereeing two very silly Shih tzus and a mischievous cat. We both enjoy spending time in the garden. Susan focuses her time and attention on more ornamental gardening and Farmer Darrell enjoys tending and harvesting the veggies.

We also love to hike and visit nearby Lake Tahoe to the west, or the beautiful deserts to the east. Traveling is still a favorite even though we do not have to go far to spend time with much of our family. And of course, we especially enjoy cheering on the UNR sports teams! Go Pack!
