I am an Executive Assistant turned Nantucket Pop-Up Store Manager at Alex and Ani
Iâ€™ve been working at Alex and Ani for about a year now
My most inspiring quote is: â€œIf I am not for myself, then who will be for me? And if I am only for myself, then what am I? And if not now, when?â€ Hillel the Elder
I canâ€™t put down â€œThe Iliadâ€ by Homer; â€œHow Soccer Explains the World: An Unlikely Theory of Globalizationâ€ by Franklin Foer; and anything by Malcolm Gladwell. Regardless of any book I read, I always find myself reading a chapter, or two, or the entire book, on any given day.
Albums: â€œ3 Rounds and a Soundâ€ by Blind Pilot and â€œWasting Lightâ€ by Foo Fighters. Songs: â€œAmerican Girlâ€ by Tom Petty, â€œJust Like Heavenâ€ by The Cure and â€œScar Tissueâ€ by Red Hot Chili Peppers Guilty Pleasure: â€œPumped Up Kicksâ€ by Foster the People have been on repeat lately
My style is not to subscribe to labels, just look my best. However, I can often be seen Rocking the suit and tie around the office. A V-Neck, jeans and sneakers are preferable whenever else possible. Keep it stylish and keep it simple, my friends.
My favorite movie of all time is a tie between Scent of a Woman and Top-Gunâ€¦ and James Bond. Any James Bond!
My favorite TV show: 1-101: Entourage. Itâ€™s over? Entourage DVD sets 1-8, again and againâ€¦
One of my most cherished memories includes any Christmas with my family. Family is family. Christmas is Christmas. Latinos areâ€¦ different.
My favorite things about Alex and Ani are the fans and our Charity by Design department! I love to look around and find people out wearing their Alex and Ani, hear their stories and about how much they love their bangles! It brings me an absolute sense of gratification to know that Alex and Ani can make people happy and at the same time, contribute back to society. Organizations such as the Hasbro Childrenâ€™s Hospital and Tuesdayâ€™s Children, to name a couple, do the same on a day-to-day basis. Thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m so proud of Carolyn and the CBD team: They work hard every day to make people smile! Oh, and for thatâ€¦ Operation Smile!
Today I am spreading positive energy through assisting customers pick out gifts and pieces for themselves, friends and family.
I am inspired by my family. I am blessed with their love and all the opportunities that theyâ€™ve provided me all my life. They are so smart and hard-workingâ€¦ I am very proud of them and all theyâ€™ve accomplished. I owe them everything: who I am, where I am, where Iâ€™m going and where I end up (at the top!)â€¦ Itâ€™s all thanks to them. I love â€˜em!
Iâ€™m wearing my St. Christopher, Newport Folk Festival and Hero charms on a leather necklace today and every day!
I love Alex and Ani because of the amazing and talented people I have the honor, and pleasure, to work with every day. The entire Alex and Ani familyâ€¦ I am blessed to be part of such a unique culture and a company that consistently strives, and achieves greatness. We are growing so fast and we are doing so many new, different thingsâ€¦ just take a look at what weâ€™ve accomplished: It is a direct result of the gifted and hard-working minds that I get to learn from every day. Plus, everyone is so Rock and Roll! I love it!
My all-time favorite Alex and Ani piece is the Byzantine Coin necklace that Hilary Rhoda wore in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Theyâ€™re so beautiful!
