What brand(s) do you work for? Camping World What other teams do you work with the most? I work with the Retail and Web Content teams the most. What is your favorite thing about your job and why? I work on the Camping World E-commerce team and my main job is to lead the setup process for new items. It has been really cool getting to see items from the starting discussions with the vendors all the way to when they go live on the site and having a hand in every step of the process. Because our assortment is so wide, I am able to learn about so many difference aspects of Camping and Retail in general that I never knew about before. What made you interested in working in the outdoor recreation industry? From a young age my dad ingrained in my sisters and me the importance of spending time outside. I have spent ever summer weekend at the lake for the last 15 or so years, which helped me to develop a love for the outdoors and all of the fun activities that are included in outdoor recreation. It is really cool getting to take my experiences with outdoor recreation and use them to try and make the online shopping experience easier for the Camping World customer. How has Camping World Holdings helped you succeed as a woman in the workplace? How is this different than other companies you have worked at? Here at Camping World I work alongside some of the most intelligent and hardworking women. Something that I appreciate is that the company has given me the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of aspects of the business, not just the side of it that I work on the most. I feel good working for a company that gives women the chance to learn and grow and become successful. What advice would you offer other women who are interested in a career at a Camping World Holdings brand? My advice would be to find a job and a team that makes you feel valued and valuable. My team at Camping World made it easy to learn and grow in such a short time all while making me feel as if the work I am doing matters. As a 2020 grad, I know first hand how difficult it is to graduate during a pandemic with countless challenges thrown at me. If you are someone who is experiencing many challenges as you start your career, try to trust that the right job for you is out there, you just have to stay positive and consistent in your pursuit.
