Amanda, Ballard co-Store Manager/Team Builder
This year’s Sip and Ship Most Valuable Player, Amanda joined us about a year ago as a barista and quickly learned the ins and outs of this multifaceted business. Amanda’s ability to master any task is impressive. She also loves music and travel and is looking forward to returning to college in fall 2020.
Emma, Greenwood co-Store Manager/Team Builder
Emma was honored with our crew nominated “Authenticity” award. She brings creativity, compassion, and a sense of humor wherever she shows up. Originally from Anacortes, WA, she has lived in Chicago and recently moved to Seattle from San Francisco. She loves adding personal touches to anything she touches at Sip and Ship - and when cooking new foods at home with her sister. One of Emma’s dreams is to see the Northern lights from a hot spring in Iceland.
Kat, Head Baker/co-Store Manager
The woman behind Sip and Ship’s delicious homemade scones, salted-chocolate-chip cookies, banana bread, and gluten-free lemon and ginger molasses cookies - just to name a few of our delicious baked treats. As her name implies, Kat loves cats. She values her family and friends and inspires giggles with her team with silly puns she shares on a regular basis. One day she hopes to open her own bakery and currently makes amazing custom cakes. Her most recent cake was a forest theme for her best friend’s baby shower. The creation included woodsy creatures and foliage with clusters of marzipan-mushrooms accented down the side of chocolate tree-trunk-cake.
Kyra, Greenwood co-Store Manager/Team Builder
Pet lover and recent transplant from Chicago, Kyra is currently a student at the University of Washington completing her degree in Geography and GIS technology. Kyra loves mail, enjoys sending and receiving letters/parcels, and helping Sip and Ship customers achieve the same sense of satisfaction. In her free time, she takes pride in her rescued canine family made up of three sweet cane corsos; Gunther, Gage, and Talia.
Nathaniel, HR Coordinator/Team Builder
Even though you may not see him on a regular basis, he’s still a vital part of the Sip and Ship team. Nathaniel works with us remotely from Chicago where he lives with his wife, Nastassia and two-year-old daughter, Julianna. Next month they welcome baby number two - so stay tuned for that announcement! Nathaniel is an extremely talented musician and composer. He and his wife are in a jazz band together called Charlie and The Gypsy.
We hope you enjoy connecting with our exceptional team members as much as they enjoy connecting with you.
Have a great week!
