Meet us Monday - Meeting Edward Jenkins, Customer Service Representative
1. What is your position and role at Gillette? Do you have a favorite story or memory?
I'm a customer service rep in the department of registration. I have many favorite stories because I've met so many extraordinary families in my job. But if I only had to pick one…it would be about a teenager patient I met when I first started at Gillette. He couldn't walk or talk when I met him because he was in a car that was hit by a train. Through his hard work, the determination of his family and amazing care he received at Gillette, he's now walking and talking. He's a miracle - and there are so many miracles that walk inside our doors every day.
2. What are some of your hobbies outside of work?
I'm developing a cooking experience for kids to encourage fun and healthy eating. I lead the experience as the character Lalo who has a magical lunchbox that springs up random healthy food (yep, I do a real magic trick). It's called Lalo's Lunchbox - check out Lalo's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/LalosLunchbox
3. Do you have any children or pets?
I'm married but have no pets or children. Perhaps my wife thinks I'm the kid in the house…
4. If you could travel anywhere, where would you go?
5. What is one fun fact about you?
I was born on leap year day. I'm really only 9 years old (but don't tell anyone).
