Meet Cari

 

Many of you have had the pleasure of meeting this all round fantastic team member at Coriander. Here is a little more about our affable, talented, world-travelling Coriander asset.

Introducing Cari!

 

What drew you to Coriander? What do you like about your job here?

I started out almost 4 years ago as the ‘Visual Storyteller’ at Coriander where I was responsible for the general merchandising. Within the year, I took on the role of Team Lead for Coriander Life, a job which was very close to my heart because I got to work directly with our wonderful customers. And most recently, I have taken on the positions of Creative Director and Assistant Buyer for both our Coriander stores, which is super fun.

I was drawn to Coriander because it's such a dynamic small business, built on pure dedication with a passion for fun and great intention. I've worked for big brand companies in Toronto in the past and I find the unique personality and culture of Coriander really refreshing.

 

What is your favourite Coriander product and why?

There's in no way I can pick one single fave Coriander product! I absolutely love SQ Vegan Bags, the cheeky cards, the funky silver jewellery, and how could you not love the clothing?  

There's always something for everyone. And now that I am helping with the buying process, I love just about everything.


Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am Toronto born, but I have lived in a few other places around the world: The Arctic, The Channel Islands, Costa Rica, Revelstoke BC, and now Collingwood!

I love music, playing frisbee, swimming, and decorating houses. Exploring thrift stores and antique markets are also among my favourite activities.

 

Cari would love it if you were to stop by and say hello. So would we. The Coriander team is very appreciative of her innumerable skills and warm personality, and we won’t EVER let her leave. Never.
