This week’s Zapponian Spotlight is on one of our newbies from Zappos Merchandising, Inc., Natalie F.
This Connecticut native is an identical twin who has a penchant for live performance. She graduated with a degree in Theatre and moved to Chicago to train and perform at Second City. She then made the big move to Las Vegas to be closer to family, including her twin sister who happens to work close to the Zappos HQ buildings!
Read on to learn more about Natalie:
Pick 3 words to describe your personal style
N: I have an old roommate that would call me “Way too Connecticut.” I was a personal shopper for JCrew for 5 years, and used to go overboard with the cashmere and the argyle and the critter embroidery. I would just say Comfortable, Classic and Casual.
Who is your favorite musician or band?
N: I am a huge fan of Carole King and James Taylor. The singer/songwriters of the 70s are just so passionate about their music; you can’t help but love them!
Name 3 things you never leave home without:
N: Neutrogena revitalizing lip balm in Fresh Plum, my iPhone, and a book.
If you could have dinner with one famous person, who would it be?
N: I would love to split a nice bottle of Pinot Noir with Alex Trebek, and then start quizzing each other with random trivia!
What’s the weirdest thing to ever happen to you?
N: A year and a half ago, I had to go under general anesthesia to have some surgery. When I woke up in recovery, my doctor was standing over me shaking her head. Of course I expected the worst, but she just burst out laughing- she explained to me that I kept coming to in the middle of the surgery and asking what the score of the Villanova game was- the NCAA basketball tournament had started that day, and I had ‘Nova going to the Championship game in my work pool.
What’s your favorite part about working at Zappos HQ?
N: String Cheese Friday!! Just kidding, although that is pretty rad! I love the family spirit and positivity. Everyone is so supportive of each other, coming from other corporate environments, we all know that is a rarity.
