Celebrating Team Tropical: Jennifer Lewis

January 8, 2020

In our Celebrating Team Tropical series, we commemorate our employees’ work anniversaries by getting to know them and their role at Tropical better. Meet Jennifer who is a Territory Manager out of our Orlando office. She’s celebrating 5 YEARS with the company this week!

Tell us about your role at Tropical:

I recently celebrated 5 years working for Tropical Foods! I visit customers introducing new products while promoting existing products, prospect for new business and provide the best customer service possible to maintain and grow our current customer base.

What’s your favorite part of your job?

Every day is different and that is exciting! I meet with current customers that I have established relationships and I also meet with new people every single day. My job is never boring.

What project/success are you most proud of here?

Winning “Rookie of the Year” my first year with Tropical Foods

What’s your favorite memory from working here?

My favorite memory would be attending my first National Sales & Marketing Conference for Tropical Foods in 2015. I had been working for the company for 7 months and that is when I really got to see the “family” environment that trickles down from Angela and Carolyn, the Owners.

What is on your wish list for your next five years here?

I would like to win “Territory Manager of the Year” and promote to Senior Territory Manager.

What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?

Broadcast Journalism or Graphic Design

If you could choose anyone, who would you pick as your mentor?

Currently, I would chose Rachel Hollis who is a motivational speaker, best selling author and blogger. She promotes living your best life at all times.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you:

Something that many people do not know about me is that while in college I was a professional note taker for students with disabilities. I was paid to share my class notes with disabled students who were taking the same classes. That really drove me to take meticulous notes because I knew that other students were relying on me to do an excellent job! I also never missed class!

If they made a movie of your life, who would play you?

There was a period of time when I was told frequently that I looked like Jennifer Aniston, so I would chose her to play me.
