Eve’s Women in Leadership – Amanda
Please describe your job title and your responsibilities at Eve & Co?
I wear a number of hats here, but technically I’m the Manager of Retail Sales in Eastern Canada. Right now, I’m the first point of contact for our retailers in Newfoundland and Labrador. I also work with our marketing and branding team.
What is your favourite part about your job and why?
I love working in a new industry that is rapidly changing and essentially being part of history with the legalization of recreational cannabis in Canada. It’s definitely going to be a good story to tell my future grandchildren!
Are you a hunter or a gatherer in life?
Definitely a hunter. I wanted to get married to my (now) husband so I asked him to marry me on stage at a concert. I also really wanted a dog…so I came home and surprised him with a dog. I also really wanted a second dog….so I came home and surprised him with another dog, too.
When did you immediately click with someone after you just met them? And why?
I’d have to say its been with two of my colleagues, Kelsey and Lindsay. The first day we met, a few jokes were told as ‘feelers’ and lets just say the rest is history. I can honestly say that a day does not go by without one – if not all – of us laughing so hard we cry.
