A TYPICAL DAY AT TROPICAL CONSISTS OF:
Everyday at Tropical is a little different. Typically, I talk to a variety of people, whether on the phone or at our pickup window. I assist existing customers with placing orders, suggestions for their locations, problem resolutions and gather needed information for new customers.

FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT WORKING AT TROPICAL?
I love the people I work with and my customers. Our Orlando OC has become a family!

FAVORITE TROPICAL PRODUCTS:
Sweet Caroline and Sweet Heat.

IF YOU COULD CREATE YOUR OWN CUSTOM TROPICAL SNACK MIX, THE INGREDIENTS WOULD BE:
Butter toffee peanuts, salted cashews and praline pecans

WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO OUTSIDE OF WORK?
I’m a busy body (soccer mom/dance mom) so I’m on the go most of the time, but when time permits, my family and I like crafting, playing games and fishing.
