What is your title and what do you do at 1-800-Flowers.com?
My official title is Human Resource Generalist. I specialize in talent acquisition and onboarding, and am also responsible for the development of our Summer Internship program. The week after Valentine’s day, I will officially be one year old with 1800Flowers.com!
1800Flowers’ main mission is to deliver smiles. What about your Valentine makes you smile?
My valentine is compassionate, fun-loving and really excited about what she does. Her energy and enthusiasm toward our relationship as well as her occupation always make me smile (even after a rough day of recruiting!)
“My valentine is compassionate, fun-loving and really excited about what she does.”
Our Valentine’s Day motto is to “WOW Her!” How do you WOW your Valentine?
I believe that sometimes, simple is best. I WOW my Valentine every day, just because it makes her happy, whether it is ordering a bouquet of flowers or box of chocolates, or perhaps just dinner and a movie at home. However, there are opportunities for fun and adventure at any time!
What is your favorite Valentine’s Day gift to receive?
I have never been a fan of Valentine’s Day “gifting”. However, a fun card with a great, funny message always goes a long way. I’m also known to have a sweet tooth!
What is your favorite flower or plant?
My favorite flower is the Gerbera Daisy. Unlike other daisies, they are large with long, strong stems, and will stand up through car rides home. Kind of like me!
What is the most valuable thing you have learned about flowers and plants during your time here?
The most valuable thing I have learned about flowers and plants is that they are surprisingly a lot like us. Beautiful and delicate but also very resilient to change and opportunities to spend more time in the sun!
