<strong>Jill</strong> has been part of our driving team since February 2012 after being introduced to us here at <strong>The Organic Box</strong> through one of our long-standing food-family members. She loves watching as our customer's kids grow-up and as tiny pets get bigger, but bringing people the gift of locally produced food is the part of her job she finds incredibly rewarding! <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Fun facts about Jill:</strong></span> <p style="padding-left: 30px;">• She is a huge Sci-Fi nerd (her words!) - everything from TV to movies to books.</p> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">• She LOVES the band Pearl Jam. If you ever see her on the road she's likely singing along with Eddie Vedder at the top of her lungs!</div> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">[space height="20"]</div> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">• Her free time is spent painting whenever the creative urge strikes, hanging out with her 2 cats while getting sucked into Netflix vortexes, and travelling along the Pacific and Atlantic Coastlines. Her favourite stops are both in Seattle - Pike Place Market and the Experience Music Project.</div> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">[space height="20"]</div> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">• Jill will be shaving her head on <strong>Feb 4th</strong> (World Cancer Day) to raise money for Cancer Research in memory of her mom. If you are interested in donating to this cause - please check out her <a href="http://fundraising.nohairselfie.ca/pledge/Participant/Home.aspx?seid=9601&mid=9&pid=2045249" target="_blank"><strong>fundraising page</strong></a> - it would mean the world to her!</div> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">[space height="20"] • She can't go without fresh cilantro or limes - simply so she can always make guac(amole) at a moments notice. Her other favourite Organic Box items are as follows: Neal Brother's Salsa & Late July's Sublime <strong><a href="https://membership.theorganicbox.ca/HDMI.aspx?page=Market&idCategoryTop0=248" target="_blank">chips</a> </strong>and when she truly feels like treating herself - she orders <a href="https://membership.theorganicbox.ca/HDMI.aspx?page=Market&idCategoryTop0=275" target="_blank"><strong>Sunworks Farm</strong></a>'s Chicken.</div> <div>[space height="20"]</div> <div><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>Jill's favourite story from the road:</strong></span></div> <div>[space height="20"]</div> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">'It's always a treat bumping into people I know downtown, or delivering to friends. The kids always make this job worthwhile - I've been given Valentine's & drawings (my Canada Day fruit drawing was one of the best!!!). Or when people say "We love seeing you! It's our favourite part of the day!".'</div> <div style="padding-left: 30px;">[space height="20"]</div> <div> [caption id="attachment_4522" align="aligncenter" width="680"]<a href="http://blog.theorganicbox.ca/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Jill-2.jpg"><img class="size-large wp-image-4522" src="/media/original_images/Jill-2-1024x1024_AZ9uuj2.jpg" alt="Jill" width="680" height="680" /></a> Jill[/caption] </div> It's no wonder Jill is such an essential part of our team - she's been with us through each of our THREE warehouses and as new routes, new producers and new customers have joined our food-family - she has grown alongside us! If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Jill and she turns up on your doorstep or in your office - make sure to say "Hey - nice Pearl Jam gear!". Her Julia Roberts-smile is almost as contagious as her awesome laugh - PLUS - she'd love to meet you, too! [space height="20"]
