What is your position and role at Gillette? I am a Guest Service Representative at Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare’s St. Paul Campus. I have been with Gillette for a little over four months.
Do you have a favorite Gillette story or memory? Forming relationships with our patients is so rewarding. There is one patient I am particularly fond of who comes in regularly for her back brace. She wears a permanent smile and always has a band bracelet for me. She and I talk about the Minnesota Wild and how she plays adapted hockey. Last week she told me that she no longer needs to wear her brace and that she won’t be coming in a whole lot anymore – happy news although I will miss her.
What do you like best about working at Gillette? I love being part of Gillette’s team, greeting our families and helping them to find their way around. I love seeing smiles on the children’s faces when we can wear our silly hats or dress up for holidays!
Do you have any children or pets? Yes, I have two children Hayden, who will be 11 in November and Tayz who will be 2 in October. Hayden plays hockey for White Bear Lake Squirt level. Tayz, (who was named after a hockey player from the Chicago Blackhawks Jonathan Toews #19 [teɪvz/ TAYVZ]), likes to play and shoot his pucks around. Both boys are funny little characters. I am a definitely a true boy mom!
What are your hobbies outside of work? We are a HUGE hockey family! We eat, breathe and sleep hockey at our house! If my oldest doesn’t have a game or practice, you can bet we will be watching hockey. During summer we love to go down to Millville and watch the Pro Nationals Motocross (dirt bikes). I also love to ice fish, camp, go for motorcycle rides and play with my kiddos.
What is one fun fact about you? I was born and raised a California girl, but am a true Minnesotan at heart!
