… my new nickname by Mike, an engineering intern (who will now answer to “Macho Mike”). Our new nicknames were part of our first intern lunch series—a weekly time where all of the interns gather from our offices and learn more about Vera Bradley.
Last week, I definitely lived up to my nickname and was running at high speed around the Vera Bradley offices. I jumped between the Production Road and Industrial Road offices for top-secret retail event meetings and to help my mentor gather marketing material. At Production Road, I met Elise, a Butler Bulldog (once a bulldog, always a bulldog!) and Vera Bradley employee. We have been emailing for a while, so it was nice to be able to put a face to the email address!
I have settled into my departments—making friends with the IT intern (Courageous Cam!) over my computer problems and chatting at the microwaves with other Lean Cuisine “foodies.” I even managed to fit in a photo shoot at the photo studio (for my ID badge, but I know America’s Next Top Model will be calling any day now…).
