Employee Spotlight - Heather
Many of the employees we hire are friends of people who already work for us, it’s a
friend of a friend situation, which proves to be a good way to find great people. Heather is a friend of Felicia’s (our downtown store manager who recently moved to Portland). Felicia encouraged Heather to apply for an opening in the production department. That introduction took place over two years ago and was the beginning of a solid and lasting relationship. Heather is quiet but engaged. That may sound like a contradiction, but even though Heather is shy to begin with, her passion and dedication quickly rises to the top. Heather is engaged and always ready to try something new. Like everyone who works here, Heather is a highly creative and thoughtful person. There isn’t a task in the warehouse she isn’t willing to tackle. She helps generate ideas for new product designs, brainstorms ways to keep designs current, and is a fountain of smart ideas. Heather can be trusted to tackle any project skillfully. She is willing to lend a hand no matter what the job. Heather fits Mountain Madness like a glove. Thankfully, Felicia did the introductions and planted the seed, but Heather has fully bloomed as a member of the Mountain Madness team. Everyone here has kind and supportive things to say about Heather, a true reflection of all the kindness she exudes. ‘Heather is playful, sassy, fun, talented, and has a good attitude.’ Whether she is roller skating in the parking lot on her lunch break, giving feedback on a book we’ve all read together, or sharing her latest craft project (recently she’s been making amazing earrings!) Heather always has good attitude and kind heart.
