Michael Northway



Michael Northway built his first pond in the summer of 1995 in his mother’s back yard. It was such a success and was so much fun that he decided (with strong encouragement from his wife) to start his own business. Michael and his wife Nancy started Oasis Water Design shortly thereafter. The business ran successfully and grew rapidly. In 2005, after a one year hiatus from the industry, Michael was hired as the Operations Manager at Santa Fe Water Gardens, a local water garden retail store which was started by the well known Charles "Chic" Kelty (of Savio) in the mid to late 80's. With Santa Fe Water Gardens new owners, Michael helped to build a strong presence in Santa Fe for the retail store. By 2010 Michael, with his wife Nancy, went back out on his own and re-established Oasis Aquatic Services to continue his passion for the Design / Build side of the industry. In January 2014 Michael and Nancy decided to expand Oasis Aquatics into the retail sales market out of a space located in Santa Fe, NM.
