At Boxwell, we build every one of our custom storage units from pure innovation, ingenuity, and integrity. Our products are solid and speak for themselves. But our best asset at Boxwell is our team of employees. This group of smart, creative, witty, and personable go-getters is pretty darn amazing. Each one of us is proud of what we do. And while most of us are outgoing and easy to talk with, there are some surprising elements about each team member that you may not know. Therefore, we invite you to get to know us even better with another employee spotlight.
Let us introduce you to Jennifer Strothman.
Jennifer joined the Boxwell team in 2020 and is currently our Sales & Operations Analyst. A recent graduate from the Leeds School of Business at the University of Colorado, Boulder, she studied Business Management, Global Business, and Chinese Language. Jennifer is from Grand Junction and now lives in Denver, Colorado. She loves to travel and has been to more than 20 different countries and has lived in both Asia and South America.
We asked Jennifer a few questions in this employee spotlight to help you get a better idea of who she is — in and out of the office:
1. What is something about yourself that most people don’t know?
JENNIFER: I am pretty fluent in Chinese! I can also read and write characters and am actively learning more each day.
2. If you’re having a bad day, what helps?
JENNIFER: Spending time in nature or cuddling with my dog. And a beer.
3. Say you are forced to completely change your career, what would you choose to do instead?
JENNIFER: I would pursue international business in a foreign country. I love to travel and experience different cultures.
4. Tell us about your ideal vacation. If you can only bring a backpack for the week, what would you bring?
JENNIFER: I’ve always dreamed backpacking Patagonia in South America. I would bring my sleeping bag, a map, and my best friends.
5. When you were 10 years old, what did you imagine you’d be doing now?
JENNIFER: I thought I’d be a pop star! Which is funny because I am an average singer at best, and I hate being the center of attention now.
6. Favorite movie?
JENNIFER: Stuck In Love. I love Lily Collins and the beach setting the move takes place in. It tugs on your heart strings but has a happy ending.
7. Best sandwich?
JENNIFER: A spicy chicken sandwich or a bahn mi. I like anything with lots of flavor!
