We couldn’t be more excited to announce Brittany Abbott has joined our Repurpose team as a Sales Account Manager. We knew Brittany had sales chops. She has worked for years selling eco-friendly products at major retailers like Whole Foods. But there was a lot we didn’t know about Brittany until we sat her down for a Q&A. For instance, the St. Louis native plays guitar, geeks out on Radiolab, and may finally be able explain string theory to us. Bonus!

RP: If you could have any talent what would it be?
BA: A talent for theoretical sciences and experimental sciences. I am easily romanced by things like string theory and ghost particles. I've listened to every episode of Radiolab and many times wished I had a mind like Albert Einstein or Oliver Sacks.

RP: What's the best job you’ve ever had?
BA: Art Camp Counselor. There’s nothing better than seeing children take pride in something they create out of their own self-expression. 

RP: What's your favorite thing about selling eco-friendly products?
BA: I am energized by conversations about humans’ impact on our environment. I am grateful to have a career that lets me engage with people about issues that ultimately impact the wellbeing of everything on earth. 

RP: What changes have you seen in eco-friendly market since you began?
BA: More accessibility and choice of products that aim to be gentler to our environment. Seeing organic and compostable products at stores I have shopped at with my family when I was a child is proof to me that we as consumers have a lot of power in the market.

RP: What's your secret sales weapon?
BA: My ears and what sits between them.

RP: What do you like to do when you're not working?
BA: Play guitar. Music has always been important to me, but I put off learning to play an instrument until recently. If I could practice guitar all day, I would. 

RP: Are you a dog person or a cat person?
BA:(whispers) dog. I love all animals ;)
