We hope you guys enjoyed Kays PBH Spotlight last week! Not only are we going to be featuring inspiring stories from our very own community, but our PBH Spotlight is also going to highlight our own team members and how they help us grow as a business, and as people. We’d love for our PBH Tribe Members to get to know our team members as well!
This week we’re very excited to feature our fulfillment team leader, Melanie! We wouldn't be where we are today without her dedication and commitment to our team. She makes everything that we do possible. She is young, ambitious and works extremely hard to help her team function like a well oiled machine.
Our team started with Melanie 2 years ago. She believed in our vision from the very beginning. She joined our team without any fear and took a gamble on us! Melanie has been around for all of our highs and lows through the last couple of years. She’s seen the company grow from just 1 unit and working with just one other employee to now having different departments! She stands for all our values! She is passionate, bold and honest!
We sent Melanie a few questions to get to know her and her story better! We loved her story, and felt that it strongly resonated with what we stand for. She has done a fantastic job at running fulfillment and we’re lucky to have her as part of our team.
Read her amazing story below!
I am excited to be featured this week on the PBH Spotlight blog!
Can you give me a brief story about yourself?:
I started here at PBH when I was 19, it was my first job. I started in the bakery, at that time it was Josy, another team member and myself. I loved it, I was scooping cookies, rolling out dough, piping donuts and much more. After 6 months I left PBH to work for my uncle in Sarasota, beautiful city here in Florida. I moved there on my own and my family was just 3 hours away. After 7 months of being in Sarasota, I really missed my family and I wasn't too happy with the job I had there. I decided to move back to Miami. I messaged Bryan asking him if he was hiring here at PBH and him and Josy welcomed me back with open arms. That was two years ago. Since then, the team has grown tremendously, it went from me and another team member to now having 20 people on the PBH team. I went from scooping cookies in the bakery to running fulfillment and having my own office. This business has grown enormously and I'm so proud to be a PBH team leader.
What 3 things motivate you?:
Three things that motivate me everyday are my family, my future and the happiness of the PBH customers. Family will always be number one. My mom, sisters and my nephew mean everything to me. I work hard to make my future easier not only for me, but for my future family also. PBH customers are the best. If it weren't for all of you beautiful people my team and I would be nowhere. We appreciate each and every one of you.
What are you most passionate about?:
I'm most passionate about my family, nephew and my dogs. My nephew just turned 8 months on July 4th. It feels like just yesterday I was carrying him for the first time, time flies! I have a Goldendoodle and a Dachshund, I love getting home to them always jumping on me like if they haven't seen me in days.
What’s your biggest stress relief?:
My favorite thing to do when I'm stressed is building puzzles. After a long day at work and sitting in Miami traffic for an hour, there's nothing like getting home, pouring yourself a glass of wine, building a puzzle and listening to some music to get your mind off of things.
What’s your favorite PBH product?:
My favorite PBH goodies are the walnut brownies and the double chocolate cookies! Can you tell I love chocolate?
