What is your title and what do you do at 1-800-Flowers.com? I am Senior Manager, Website Marketing, for 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. I’ve been with the company a little over 3 years. I am responsible for managing the execution of the front-end development of the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM website, along with a team of young and talented professionals. Aside from the workload that we tackle on a daily basis, I love my job here as it allows me to challenge my team and help them excel and gain the skills they need to be successful in their future careers. I am a teacher at heart, and I value the power of knowledge gained through experience.
“I WOW my Valentine with my consistent show of love and support, Valentine’s Day or not.”1800Flowers’ main mission is to deliver smiles. What about your Valentine makes you smile? My Valentine makes me smile because what we have experienced together, and what we’ve conquered in our lives together, is something to smile about. Our Valentine’s Day motto is to “WOW Her!” How do you WOW your Valentine? I WOW my Valentine with my consistent show of love and support, Valentine’s Day or not. What is your favorite Valentine’s Day gift to receive? I like the Vase Expressions® product as I can express myself perfectly with a personal message to my Valentine. What is your favorite flower or plant? I like succulents and cacti. They are the only types that I can maintain without them dying in my care. What is the most valuable thing you have learned about flowers and plants during your time here? I’ve learned that flowers & plants have more expressive qualities other than the visual beauty they hold. With the goal and message of “delivering smiles”, that itself tells me there’s more to flowers than just colorful petals and pretty vases.
