Getting to Know Sagebrush, Episode #4 - Elisa Maxwell

by Matthew Kellso February 22, 2018 2 min read

Due to the overwhelming growth of our online business (thanks to you) and our desire to open for public retail, we found that it was time to hire another Sagebrush employee. We were lucky enough to find Elisa who just happened to graduate from high school and was looking for work. I have known Elisa for many years, as we go to the same church and her father is one of my best friends. 

Elisa started back in June of 2017 and has become an essential part of the Sagebrush family. She focuses primarily on our sister business, Hackberry Tea, and has discovered a natural gift for photography and our marketing. Many of our new coffees have been photographed by her, and she has done an exceptional job revamping Hackberry's Instagram page. Check it out here

Elisa is quick to do any task with a smile on her face, and we are blessed to have her on our team. Below are some questions that she answered so you can get to know her.
