Mamava is growing by leaps and bounds and we’re excited to introduce Jenny, our new Inside Sales manager. She’s hit the ground running (cuz that’s how we roll) and is hard at work learning the ins-and-outs of our lactation pods. Recently we had a chance to catch up with her!
What brought you to Mamava?
A shared passion for social change through business. Support for women has been the common thread woven throughout my career-- from flower farming, to apparel and textile design, to proliferating internet use.
I recently got my MBA in sustainable entrepreneurship at UVM, and during the program, I had the opportunity to connect with our co-founder Sascha. Her story inspired me, and Mamava has been on my radar ever since. I’m so grateful to be working for a company I believe in.
If you could add one function or accessory to a Mamava pod, what would it be?
Relaxing music + dimmed lighting. Or a tiki bar. I love them.
How do you feel about Sticky notes (our CEO loves them!) ?
Post-its? I invented them...
Favorite go to work snack (we’re big on snacks!)?
Citrus + dark chocolate.
Favorite hobbies when you're not passionately working for Mamava?
Yoga, cooking + the great outdoors.
If you could place ONE Mamava anywhere you want - where would you put it?
I grew up working in restaurants. Because our country doesn’t mandate paid parental leave, and in the restaurant industry, when you don’t work, you don’t get paid, so many new moms who serve meals to others cannot feed their most important customer (their baby). I would love to help a national restaurant chain offer lactation accommodations to their employees.
What part of Mamava are you most pumped about?
Empowering moms to do it all; work, travel, have a family, and be healthy and happy while doing it.
