30 Apr Have You Met Our Girl Maggie?
While our events steal the headlines, it’s our people that truly define Shelter Co. The magic is in the team, and we’re pretty dang lucky to have a solid one. Each month we’re featuring a crew member so you can get to know us a little bit more behind the scenes. This month, we sit down with team member Maggie Wilson to find out a bit more about that #ShelterLife.
1.When did you join Shelter Co. and what’s your role at the company?
Coming up on my 4 year anniversary! Creative Director
2. What’s your favorite memory from a Shelter Co. event?
All of my favorites are from our times in Marfa for the Trans-Pecos Festival of Music & Love. We work hard to set up a ton of tents in really tough conditions (everything is bigger in Texas including the scorpions and tarantulas), but we have the best time during that event stuffing our faces, dancing, pounding ranch waters, and partying with the coolest folks around.
3. Lemonade out of lemons moment (aka what do you look back on now and laugh)?
Does hearing Kelsey describe how she had to clean feces off the WALLS of a bathroom stall count? Lemons: my boss had to do that. Lemonade: I got to laugh about it??
4. How many days were you on the road for work last year?
63 days spent in India, Idaho, South Dakota, California desert, California mountains, California coast….you get the picture.
5. What’s one essential item you have to pack when on-site for a Shelter Co. Event?
Whiskey and wet wipes.
6. What brand would you most want Shelter Co. to partner with on an event in the future?
The Wing. I am really in to what they’re doing by turning the men’s club concept on its ass and creating a beautifully designed space for women to learn, network and get creative. I would love to do a retreat with them for powerful ladies!
7. If Shelter Co. was forced to hire an HR director, who would you want it to be?
Michelle Obama. I would make violations all the time just to get sent to her office.
8. Which fellow Shelter Co. employee would you most like to fight in a cage match and why?
Susie. She is so sweet and kind, but I know there is a savage fighter in there. I would probably lose, but it would be worth it just to see that side of her!
9. Favorite song to play in office/warehouse music roulette?
“Snake Farm” by Wylie Ray Hubbard.
10. Best piece of advice Mike Sheofsky has given you?
I can’t think of a single family friendly answer to this question.
