Where are you from?

I am originally from right here in Potsdam. The only time I have lived elsewhere was when I was in college at SUNY Plattsburgh. I love the area, and my family is here, so I plan to stay for the foreseeable future.

What do you like about working at the Co-op?

The Co-op is truly the best place I have ever worked. Coming in doesn't feel like a job most days, it's just a good time. My coworkers are some of my best friends, and I love interacting with the member-owners, many of whom I see every day, and have gotten to know very well over the time that I have been here. It is important to have a job that coincides with one's own values, and the Co-op does that for me. I am privileged to be around like-minded people who care about health, the Earth, and being an active part of the community.

Do you have a favorite product that the Co-op sells?

Kombucha! I had never tried it before I worked here, and now I drink it almost every day. I also love buying from our Bulk options, since I can reuse my containers from home.

What's something others might not know about you?

I can lick my elbow.
