Describe your job in five words or less: 

R. Riveter story on repeat :)

A typical day in the work life:

A constant source of entertainment and style, or so I've been told.

Coffee Order:

Iced coffee with almond milk and 2 pumps toasted marshmallow

Typical Work Jam:

Here at #clubriv anything by Shaggy will do.

Favorite R.Riveter Product:

The Otto, hands down. But the Corbin backpack is slowly taking over.

Favorite R.Riveter Marketplace Item:

To give as a gift, Duke Cannon & Charlie Madison EWE bracelet. For myself, Quinn Sharp.

First Job:


Growing up you wanted to be:

Flight Nurse 

What advice would you give your younger self?

To be okay being yourself, even if its different from everyone else. My mom always told me I marched to the beat of my own drum but I was afraid to listen to the sound.

Best thing about the R.Riveter Community?

Instantly having a close group of friends that just understands. I'm not sure how well I would have done first moving here and my husband deploying two weeks later if I hadn't found the R. Riveter Community.

What are you "in it" for? 

I had never experienced not being able to find a job after moving until we moved here. It was terrible, 25+ applications and nothing. My friend told me about R. Riveter and I couldn't believe it. There were other people just like me. I love working here because of the people, because of the mission, because being myself is encouraged. Coming to work doesn't feel like "work."
