Are you an Owner?
What is your favorite Tidal Creek Co-op product or food?
Locally roasted Focal Coffee. I’ve recently been enjoying the Huehuetenango, a lot.
How often do you shop at the Co-op?
At least 5 times a week.
Have you ever volunteered or worked at the Co-op?
I have been working in the Front End at Tidal Creek since July 2014.
Do you have any experience sitting on a Board of Directors?
I am currently on the Board of Directors. After attending board meetings as an owner and employee last fall, I was appointed to fill an empty seat on the Board in January 2015.
What unique skills or perspective do you feel you would bring to the Board?
As a cashier, I am able to regularly interact with our owners. I feel like I have a good handle on what is important to our owners. I am also a sounding board for my co-workers. This gives me a unique insight and perspective as a Board member to make decisions that are good for the Co-op, our owners, and my co-workers.
What is your reason or motivation to run for the Board of Directors?
I think it is so important for Tidal Creek employees to be involved in Board governance. We are so fortunate to work at a place where we are able to participate in the decision making for the Co-op. I want to continue to make sure that my co-workers have a voice on the Board.
What makes Tidal Creek Coop Important to you?
Tidal Creek is more than just my job and a place I get my groceries. I fiercely believe in the cooperative business model. I want to do my part in helping Tidal Creek be the best it can be.
Are you able to donate the time necessary to be an effective Board member?
Definitely. I already have a good understanding of the time and effort needed to be a Board member.
What else would you like Tidal Creek Co-op Owners to know about you?
I am a bike commuting, bird watching, cat loving, sensible shoe wearing, goofy lady who is proud to be an employee and owner at Tidal Creek.
Good luck Katie!
