Let the Interrogation Begin!!
1. What's the best part about working at Lenny & Larry's?
I feel that I can truly be myself...quirky, silly, serious, sometimes a blonde, LOL....we grind when we need to grind, but we also know how to have a little fun. This company respects and encourages us to express our opinions and take ownership of our projects. On a creative level, I've been able to spread my wings in many avenues of our brand development, beyond just packaging. I ABSOLUTELY love seeing our brand not only on social media, but also at the retail level too.
2. What's your favorite Lenny & Larry's product and why? How do you eat it?
I'd have to go with the blueberry Muscle Muffin 'cause it's so FLUFFY!! I warm it up in the microwave for 40 seconds and eat it with a fork. (Gotta keep my hands clean when I'm working on the computer!)
3. What do you like to do when you're not making things pretty?
Camping with friends and family and soaking up the rays like Wall-E at the beach. I also love obstacle course racing, doing karate, and any outdoor activity!
4. What are you passionate about? What inspires you?
My passion lies in getting off the grid and reconnecting with my kids, friends and family through camping. I was inspired several years ago to create CampingMoms because several women would come up to me while I was camping solo with my kids and say that they could never do that. It would always make me scratch my head. I encourage anyone to camp, anywhere, anytime and with anyone regardless of gender and age. Hence, I feel especially inspired to encourage women and moms to camp because it’s something that I love and I want them to feel and experience the same things.
5. What's something cool you would like to see for Lenny & Larry's in the future?
I want to see Lenny & Larry's cookies as small 1oz bite-sized cookies in a pouch with a ziplock bag so you can just toss it in with your stuff and carry it with you everywhere.
6. What were you like in high school?
I was very boring...hahaha. I went to an all girls Catholic school for six years and wore a uniform with shorts underneath and a ponytail. I rode my bicycle when everyone else had cars. I was in every sport, so I played sports all year round and studied a lot. All I did was go to school, go to practice, go to work, study and do art, and wake up and repeat.
7. What's one piece of career advice that you would like to give?
Show up on time.
8. What's one part of your daily routine you just can't do without?
Honestly, my favorite daily routine is tackling my kids in the morning while they're sleeping and waking them up with kisses. I also encourage our 100-pound dog to jump up on the bed and kiss them too. Then they always put out their arms for me to rub their arms and their hands.
