I work in the customer service department, as a customer service representative. My role here at Blowfish is to assist wholesale accounts in the West coast!

I have always been interested in Customer Service. Ever since I started working, I have always worked in fast food or retail. I enjoy speaking with customers from all over and building a connection and relationship.
What did you do previously before joining the Blowfish Malibu team?
Before joining the Blowfish Team I was working for a cannabis company called Secret Nature and I was also a part-time barista at Starbucks!
How did you get started with Blowfish Malibu?
Long story short, I am on a Facebook group for Babysitter’s around my city. I came across this mom in need of an occasional babysitter, reached out, and it happened to be Nikol who works on the design team! I started babysitting for her and I had expressed to her that I was looking for a new job opportunity, and she mentioned that her company was hiring, and now here I am 5 months later. 😊
What creative projects have you been working on that you’re excited about? Can you tell us about them?
I’m excited for 4Earth and the kid’s sneaker line. For 4Earth to be a part of something with a purpose and lead to self-sustaining products is one of my life goals. For the kids’ line, I’m really excited and happy to reconnect with my inner childhood. It’s also a dream come true that I get to have this strong connection and bond with my kids through sneakers, to see the fun, creativity and imagination from their point of view is really something!
What do you like most about working in the fashion industry?
I have never worked in the fashion industry so this very new to me. But I love how Blowfish has so many different options for customers to choose from. You definitely have many options when choosing the right Blowfish Sneaker or Sandal.

Which is your favorite pair of Blowfish Malibu shoes?
My favorite would have to be the Play in Natural Pongo Cat… I am obsessed with cheetah print!!
What advice would you have for someone who’s trying to pursue the same career as you?
I would say go for it if you know what you want then work for it. I am 19 years old, I honestly didn’t thing that I was going to get the position because of my age but I did it and I am proud of myself. You can always achieve what you put your mind to.
JUST FOR FUN

Probably Harry Potter…I have watched the first 2 movies when I was little. But I just recently got into it again and began to understand it. Now that I’ve seen all the movies, I am trying to read all the books.
Where are you from and how has that shaped you?
I was born and raised in the High Desert but I think Long Beach has shaped me more than anything. I moved in 2017, during a difficult time in my life and I have been thriving and growing ever since.

My dream has always been to travel to Amsterdam.
If you could have lunch with anyone, living or dead, who would it be?
It would have to be the cast from Greys Anatomy or Criminal Minds!
When do you feel best about yourself?
I feel best about myself when my apartment is clean!! I love nothing more than a clean apartment with a Christmas scented candle burning. (PS: I LOVE Christmas)
What’s your personal motto?
PMA! Positive Mental Attitude. My dad has always taught me to always look at the bright side of life and make the best of what you have.
What’s a fun fact about you most people don’t know?
I had to have major surgery when I was 18 months old. I was born with a soft cleft palate which made me unable to eat solid food until I was 2 years old. So that being said I am a very picky eater.
