I was called to be a mom first … and a member of Gingham Nation for life! I am so grateful to work for a retailer where I can be a mom first. When I started with Bath & Body Works 21 years ago, I was just looking for some additional income. Who knew I would be part of Gingham Nation for life! We don’t just sell lotion and candles. We create meaningful experiences for customers and associates. I love BBW. I love what I do. And I know I’m making a difference.

We dominate in fragrance and quality, and our customers are some of the most loyal in retail.

To play a role in this company’s evolution where associates can thrive and be their authentic selves makes me so happy and proud. I love supporting people in their development and helping them achieve their goals beyond what they envisioned. It’s very special to me. I also appreciate having a voice and being heard … I’ve had the good fortune of being part of the company’s task forces to influence decision making and help continue to evolve this brand I love.
