Why Wrapp? Having worked in Stockholm for the past 2 years, I had heard about Wrapp and the people behind it for quite a bit. As I became more familiar with Wrapp and followed what they were doing, I realized that this was exactly the type of company I wanted to work for.
Favorite Wrapp purchase: My Björn Borg purchase, because it reminded me of shopping in Stockholm… sort of!
Craziest thing you’ve seen happen at Wrapp: Signing my contract, leaving my last job, packing up my life and moving to NYC from Stockholm in two weeks was pretty crazy, but nothing compared to the US launch!! Our team worked night and day, under pressure, to make sure we had a successful launch. There was way too much coffee and not nearly enough sleep, but we did it!
Best gift you’ve ever received/given: 6 years ago, when my father flew me to Hong Kong for my birthday while I was living in South Korea teaching English as a second language. He was in Asia on business at the time and he surprised me with the trip. I wasn’t expecting to see anyone in my family for over a year as it was not an easy trip for them to make. We spent 3 amazing days together and had an experience that neither of us will ever forget.
Hidden talents: I’m afraid I have no hidden talents… I’ve exposed them all! Having said that, you may not know that I train Muay Thai.
