It all started in 2014 with three women with a big dream. Flash forward to 2019, with a growing team of twenty-seven (including our two office dogs, Eleanor and Vienna) and looking back, we wouldn’t change our journey for a thing. Here at BOXFOX, we pride ourselves on being a majority female company run by three wonderful women. Now, we’re back inside the BOFX(FOX) to meet the foxes that are the reason we’re able to keep business, as usual.
This week, we're taking you back inside the BOX(FOX) to introduce you to our Manhattan Beach, 'bama alumna, token card writer, all-star poster maker, and office hair-braider, Kayla. Read on to see why we're lucky to have this fiesty FOX on our team!
Read on to learn more about our creative Kayla and why we’re so lucky to have her on our team! //
Complete the sentence with three adjectives; My coworkers would describe me as: talkative, dramatic & devoted
Describe your role and what you do day to day //
I work in online fulfillment so I do everything from writing notes, pulling product, packing the boxes, and shipping. Every day is a little bit different so sometimes I’ll also help with restocking product or anything else that needs attention. It’s also not unlikely to find me braiding coworker’s hair around the warehouse on any given day!
How did you get here and why you love working for BOXFOX?
I heard about BOXFOX through the O’Connell family, since just about every member of the family has worked at BOXFOX, and I love that I get to work with them! I also love everyone else we work with- I’m surrounded by smart and ambitious women that inspire me every day and honestly, make coming to work each morning something I look forward to. I’ve always been a creative person, so being able to work with my hands and do something creative every day is an added bonus. The sweet notes we read and write each day and the way we get to be a small part of people’s lives through every gift doesn’t hurt either!
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not at the warehouse?
I love spending time with my family and my friends, trying new restaurants, shopping, spending time outdoors, researching skincare, organizing, doing anything crafty or creative, and I have an obsession with reality TV (bordering on unhealthy).
Any favorite podcasts, books, or TV shows right now?
As mentioned above, I love all-things reality TV, specifically on Bravo, but my love for it started with Laguna Beach and The Hills. I just completed my collection of both so I’ve been eagerly re-watching, but other honorable mentions include Vanderpump Rules, Below Deck, Southern Charm, Flipping Out and any Real Housewives franchise. I also love This Is Us, A Million Little Things, Gilmore Girls, The Office and Gossip Girl.
Podcasts I love include Straight Up with Stassi, Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard and Girlboss Radio! I’m not proud to admit that it’s been about two months since I picked up a book (likely due to all of the TV watching I’ve been doing), but that’s what new year’s resolutions are for, right?
