Describe Your Role with The GG and how does your position make The GG a better company? 
The pack station is my main gig, but I kind of bounce around and help where it's needed. When I am on pack (most of the time), l'm usually the last person the customers interact with before they go their own way. I make sure they have everything they need and try to end their GG visit on a positive note. You never know what kind of a day someone is having and it's amazing what a smile and a friendly greeting/farewell can do.

What's your favorite part of working for The GG?
My co-workers. I work with some amazing people :)

What's your one moment of glory since you've been working for The GG?
Probably when I started managing weekends and they trusted me to not burn the place down ;)

What's your favorite food that The GG has served? 
The spinach and artichoke dip from the catering menu. *heavy breathing*

What kind of trends are you seeing for this upcoming season?
Hoverboards that actually hover (fingers crossed) and Peek-A-Boo cakes.

What do you do for fun?
I absolutely love to bake. I've gotten really into cake decorating over the last few years. I also love reading, riding my bike and watching copious amounts of movies.

What's a funny story about The GG?
There was one day that we came in to find a shiny tacky substance all over the floor. It was sticky enough to make our shoes stick to the tile and had spread all over the dining room. It took us about 10 minutes to finally realize that one of our soda bags had exploded and we were all walking through Sprite syrup. Clean up wasn't the easiest, but I like to look back on it as a bonding experience for our staff ;)

What else do you want our readers to know about you?
That I'm a proud Gryffindor, have mad Bop It skills and hail from Washington state (where surprisingly, it doesn't rain all the time ;)
