Behind the Seams with summer intern Stephanie Flint

Hi! I'm Stephanie, a senior at Butler University and the Human Resources intern in the Fort Wayne office. As long as I can remember, I have enjoyed collecting Vera Bradley, and I am extremely excited about this summer. Check back to follow what's happening behind the seams at Vera Bradley!

"Lively Libby"...

… 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.

"Lively"-- a very creative (and fitting!) "L" adjective.

The exercise definitely has helped me remember the other interns’ names, but I think the adjective and name combo will always be a package deal. Sorry, “Musical Mike”, “Creative Caitlin”, and “Merry Megan”—it just works!

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…).
