Tell us more about you and your journey with Anthropologie.
My journey, or rather, love affair, began with Anthropologie well over a decade ago when my Mom and I visited a store for the very first time. We were immediately and forever charmed. Still to this day, when we are together, it is always the first stop on our list…a tradition. About a year ago, I was reevaluating my career and decided I wanted to be a part of something that I was truly impassioned about and I always came back to Anthropologie. Long story short (and a little bit of Anthro recruiter stalking on LinkedIn later), I am 5 months into my new career at Anthropologie as the Talent Manager for our incredibly exciting new stores, Anthropologie & Co., in the Bay Area. I couldn’t be more excited or proud to say that I have my dream job!
What is Anthropologie & Co.?
At our new Anthropologie & Company lifestyle stores, customers will be able to shop under one roof for expanded offerings which include exclusive apparel collections, our BHLDN bridal collections, petites, active wear, beauty, shoes and accessories, and furniture. It will also include Terrain, a garden, home and outdoor lifestyle brand deeply rooted in nature and plant life. Within the store there will also be a dining experience - the Terrain Garden Café. [We are so excited to launch Walnut Creek in September and Palo Alto in November!]
What are your top 3 LOVES about working at Anthropologie?
Top 3 LOVES about working at Anthropologie:
The people – whether it is my teammates or our customer, you are always surrounded by passion, kindness, curiosity, humor and brilliance. The atmosphere – unbridled creativity. It’s like being on an artistic odyssey every day. The culture – I love that we are an entrepreneurial environment that truly celebrates cheerfulness and rewards passion and ingenuity. We are full of visionaries and go-getters.
Why did you choose to work for Anthropologie?
Because I simply couldn’t imagine NOT working here!
Can you tell us about your life outside of Anthropologie?
I simply love just being outside! I grew up in Florida, so spending time near the ocean and in the warm sunshine is my happy place. I love to take trail runs with my dog, Gordie, mountain bike with my (very patient) husband, Travis, take annual trips to Disney World with my Mom (I definitely still wear my mouse ears!) and live vicariously through my courageous and nomadic brother who inspires me to be more adventurous every day!
