I have the most amazing team (family really) who I work with here at Pink Chicken and I really want you to get to know them!
When I started Pink Chicken it was to have a creative outlet for my love of vintage textiles and children’s clothing using my baby girls as my muses. I imagined that would be fulfilling . . . what I didn’t expect was how fulfilled I would be from this amazing little team we have created. They are a small group of the most talented, committed, passionate and dedicated people I know and I am so lucky. I know that.
When you have a small company everyone you hire is critical. Each person has 10 jobs and lots and lots of multi tasking. I was laughing the other day because someone reached out to me on Linked In and asked, “Who do I contact for marketing?” . . . and I said me; also for design, mail room, production, HR, etc! It’s like that for everyone here. We all pitch in on whatever is needed and that’s pretty great. Everyone has a roll up your sleeves, whatever it takes attitude.
I can leave early for dance pickup (Sadie) or a basketball game (Belle) and know without a doubt they are holding down the fort (coop:)
It makes me proud to think about the progress each team-member has made over the years. Here’s a little roster of the flock.
