Erin is her name and PEOPLE are her game! She will be your new best friend. Seriously. You will love her. We asked her a few questions so you could get to know her a bit better. Read on to learn more about the face behind our Customer Relations and Social Media!!
What is your Position? Customer Relations Manager
You’re stranded on a desert island with ONE Ju-Ju-Be bag. What is it and why? The Be Prepared. I’m notorious for over packing and hence that leads to my love of large bags – so the Be Prepared is perfect for holding everything I need … whenever, wherever [even on a desert island].
How long have you been with Ju-Ju-Be? Two months and going strong!
Describe a typical day for you in the world of Ju-Ju-Be. Coffee first… always. Then I check emails, visit our friends on facebook and instagram, and talk to all of you!!
What’s your favorite print? Eeeeek! I just LOVE the __________. (Can’t say! It’s coming soon!!). But seriously, I think it’s amazing.
What do you like to do outside of Ju-Ju-Be? I like to spend time with my husband and our sweet pit/boxer, Harlow. I’m a HUGE foodie so I love going out to try new places and catch up with friends over happy hour. But I also love to bake and cook a lot from home. I also love to watch Revenge, The Bachelor (guilty pleasure), and Scandal.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? I actually REALLY love to travel and there are so many places I would love to see. There’s no way to pick just one!! Here are my top 3 [since you’re making me choose haha]:
-Bali- there’s something about the rich culture mixed with gorgeous lush landscape. Heaven!!
-Scotland & Germany- I know this is sort of cheating [2-in-1] but I am Scottish/German and would love to visit both halves of my heritage in one trip!
-Santorini, Greece- Wow! Seriously, the culture, the food, the water! It looks amazing.
Like I said, there are so many beautiful places on my bucket list, but for local trips I LOVE going to Palm Springs.
I am an intern! I love it. It is so great! Ju-Ju-Be has such a great atmosphere and I really enjoy working with them. I help put together sales in our office and help organize the merchandise. I do a little bit of secretary work BUT my favorite part of the job is working with my fellow employees. They are so great!!!!
Thank you! I love it. It keeps me extra busy but it is really fun. I plan senior events and help plan the school’s pep assemblies. This holiday season, I am planning a Senior “Adopt-a-Family” for 4 local families. The class will be divided and assigned a family. I am really excited!! My goal for this year is to bring our class and community together. I love being involved in the school. Only fall back–planning class reunions for the rest of my life… AGH.
Ummm.. not that I can really think of! We do sometimes get tourists that take pictures of us on our campus… Kind of weird. I do get asked all the time if I attend school with LC… this would be true if this was my 15th year at the high school or she was even still in high school.
Gold Candy is a charity that I started after my sister was in the hospital for several months. She was in and out of hospitals with an unknown illness at the age of 10. It was really hard to see my little sister go through all this pain. The treatments were very expensive and extensive. Even after she was 90% recovered, she was still seeing doctors and visiting a pain clinic in Los Angeles. At Gold Candy, I sell bracelets and 75% of the proceeds go to a chronic pain clinic in Beverly Hills. A lot of children are in need of help from this clinic but it is often too expensive and they end up not getting the help they need. My goal is just to help others who are in the same boat my family was in almost two years ago. For more information visit my website.
I make each bracelet with suede leather and cotton thread. I wrap the thread around the suede. (probably hard to envision… there are pictures on my website!)
You can go to my website!! I’m offering Ju-Ju-Be fans a 20% discount on any of my bracelets!!! Use code JUJUBE. (Valid thru Wednesday, 10/16/13).
Eeek! Graduation… I still feel like a freshman! Time went by so quickly! After High School, I hope to attend BYU in Utah. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
My current favorite Ju-Ju-Be print is Mint Chip! So fab. However, my absolute favorites are coming out in the future… Top secret. Sorry!

For those of you that have known our company for a while, you probably have figured out that while most companies shy away from strong statements on anything that could be polarizing, we don’t have an issue with taking a stance on just about anything. We’re loud and outspoken on lots of stuff…having fun, saving our planet, and speaking out about things that resonate deep down in our hearts.
One thing that resonates with me is a deep sense of patriotism. I grew up in Washington DC and saw all the good, the bad and the ugly that surrounds politics, power struggles, and the wranglings that go along with the governance of our nation. It also imbued in me a sense of history and pride that I cannot shake. Pride in the courage of our forefathers and all the leaders that have taken the bold strokes in history. Pride in the decisions that have brought us to the great status that we have today. I still marvel at the thought of the original colonists and the immigrants along the way that left everything behind for the dream of a better life. When it comes to the American gene pool, there is a heavy dose of whatever gene makes up a dreamer, an optimist, or a person of valor. Without those traits it wouldn’t have been an easy decision to close the family farm and get on a boat headed into the unknown.
So, on Memorial Day, we have a chance to remember those that have given the ultimate gift to us…our freedom. They paid for it with the ultimate price…their lives. We are asked to remember them. To honor them. We must ensure that their sacrifice was not in vain. Please, take a moment today to do so. Thank them in your hearts. Send your prayers to them. Pray not only for those that have passed on, but the living that are still in harms way. Most of all, do something special to teach your children about those that went before us.
If you have a chance to visit Washington DC, please don’t miss these two places:
The Wall – (this was dedicated in 1982 right after I moved to DC and I still remember visiting it for the first time) -
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier-
p.s. from Team Ju-Ju-Be (Joe posted this on a past Memorial Day and we thought it was too beautiful to not share again.)
The brand was founded after an exhaustive search showed that current competitive products always left moms searching for a better blend of features. Some had style, some had function. Very few had both, and even the most functional brands missed out on the latest innovations in textile technology. In smart style, Ju-Ju-Be assimilated the most advanced technology possible and created a product line unrivaled in the industry.
