Let Me Introduce You To Our Newest Employee

by Matthew Kellso August 18, 2016

In late April, my mom and sister were in the shop graciously volunteering by stamping bags (did you know that every bag is hand-stamped, mostly by my mother?).  I mentioned to my sister (Zoë) that I was looking to hire and asked if her husband wanted work.  She quickly volunteered to take the job.  She'd already interviewed, both by being family and by making bags for free for so long, so it was a no brainer.  When she started, I told her what I've told anyone that has helped us out over the years, "Any mistake that you make, we've already made it, so don't worry about it."  Well, we're four months into her employment, and she hasn't made a mistake yet.  Meanwhile, she finds mine on a regular basis.

So, without further adieu, here is a Q&A so you can get to know Zoë too.

What is your name?  Zoë Maiden
 
Where were you born? Phoenix, AZ
 
Who inspires you?  My parents, my husband, and my Heavenly Father.
 
Your best-kept secret is?  I have an obsession with Bath & Body Works.
 
What do you collect?  Cards, movie/concert tickets, hotel room keys, drawings from my dance students, etc. I guess you could say that I am a memorabilia hoarder.
 
You never leave the house without:  my phone and a water bottle. I have to stay hydrated in this AZ heat!
 
If you could live in any decade, it would be? The 80’s Because: I would have rocked the style. I wear leggings almost every day, and my naturally curly hair was made to be worn in a side pony with a scrunchy.
 
On a Sunday afternoon, you like to: go to my local coffee shop or Barnes and Noble and read or do devotionals with my husband.
 
Your favorite hobby: I don’t know if this is considered a hobby, but I love to try new restaurants. I am a total foodie!
 
What is your favorite TV show(s)? Parenthood, MasterChef Jr., and Fixer Upper
 
If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? Greece. It looks beautiful, and I love Greek food.
 
What is your favorite coffee from Sagebrush ? I love Bali and the Guatemala Cuevitas Gold Label . I enjoy making them cold brew with my Toddy .
 
What talent besides packaging Sagebrush coffee do you have? I have been dancing for 13 years, and I am now blessed to be able to share that passion and talent as a dance teacher.
 
The best part about working at Sagebrush is: smelling fresh-roasted coffee all day long, especially after its ground.
