This past month, NatureBox recognized Jean from our Corporate Sales Team for her hard work and success in building out the Corporate Snacking Program. She was the first member of the Corporate Sales Team and has quickly risen to the responsibility to lead a full team of 5 sales associates while managing to always lend a helping hand. We took a few moments to sit down with her to get the scoop on her quick, go-to dinner recipes, her NatureBox journey, and more!
QUESTION: WHAT’S YOUR IDEAL MIDDAY SNACK?
Jean: Dark Cocoa Almonds
QUESTION: WHAT IS YOUR GO-TO 30-MINUTE DINNER RECIPE?
Jean: I cook all the time, sometimes 5 nights each week, but one of my favorite things to make is a salad. I usually toss fresh greens, dried cranberries, pecans, goat cheese, grilled chicken, and a homemade vinaigrette. My husband and I love this salad but I usually deconstruct it for my kids. They love grilled chicken and will eat the salad with just the vinaigrette and a side of roasted potatoes. Sitting down to dinner together with a healthy meal is very important to me and my family.
QUESTION: IF YOU HAD TO PICK ONE SNACK TO SURVIVE OFF OF FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Jean: The rest of my life?! WOW. That’s a tough question…can I say apples? Honestly, apples are one of my favorite snacks ever.
QUESTION: WHICH FIVE SNACKS WOULD YOU PACK IN YOUR DREAM NATUREBOX?
Jean: Jalapeño Cashews, Dark Cocoa Almonds, Whole Wheat Raspberry Figgy Bars, Sea Salt Pop Pops and Big Island Pineapple
QUESTION: HOW HAS YOUR JOURNEY WITH NATUREBOX BEEN?
Jean: I was drawn to NatureBox because of my love of cooking, food, and eating healthy. My family has been in the food and grocery business my whole life and working at a food start-up was an exciting idea to me. I wanted to continue in sales but at the time there wasn’t a sales position in the company. I started out in Customer Service and it was probably the best learning experience – that’s where I learned about our customers, the snacks and what makes people happy about NatureBox. When I heard about the sales position, I basically jumped on it. I worked with Andrew to build the the corporate program and it’s been an exciting experience to see it evolve and the team grow over the last year and a half. Working at a start-up is both exciting and challenging and that’s what keeps me going.
