Tell us a random fact people would be surprised to know about you: I’m an avid hiker, and once hiked 28 miles in a single day as part of the Trailblaze Challenge, a fundraiser for Make a Wish Foundation.
Tell us a surprising fact you have learned since working at Croghan’s: I’ve learned nothing is impossible at Croghan’s! We do over 500 repairs a month, on top of custom work. I never cease to be amazed at the beautiful pieces that are created on the second floor.
Tell us a funny moment at 308 Wonderful King Street that still makes you laugh out loud: I have a blast every day at work—it’s impossible to choose just one moment! Some of my favorite fun memories were over our end-of-workday cocktails during the holiday season. At Croghan’s, I feel like I’m working for the First Family of Charleston.
