In honor of our Employee Discount Sale, we’d like our customers to get to know our employees better. Here are three people who work hard behind the scenes to bring you the best deals on furniture and mattresses in Metro-Detroit.
Rachel E. – Social Media Manager & Webmaster
“My Photoshop skills are so fierce now!”
Rachel E. has been the Social Media Manager & Webmaster here at Gardner-White Furniture since May of 2014. Rachel’s favorite part about working at Gardner-White is “working in the best department in the whole company,” – the Ad Department. Rachel says the Advertising Department team loves to have fun, we get to be creative, and we always have each other’s backs.
Rachel’s favorite collection is a tie between the Lindy and the Nolan. “I really dig that the Lindy is so trendy right now, but I can’t get over the Nolan’s upholstered chairs with the nailhead trim. I am obsessed!” Rachel stated.
Outside of work, Rachel enjoys playing with her dog, Sophie, binge watching Netflix with her husband & shopping non-stop.
Rachel went to Grand Valley State where she majored in Broadcast Journalism and minored in Writing. She interned in Hollywood, CA for Entertainment Tonight as well as Fox 2 Detroit in the Sports department. She has interviewed celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Miguel Cabrera, Justin Verlander, and Matthew Stafford.
Rachel also loves Lady Gaga with a passion and has seen her in concert three times — soon to be four this summer!
Nicole D. – Customer Service Representative
“I work with awesome people!”
Nicole D. has been a Customer Service Representative for Gardner-White Furniture at the Hall Road location since late September of 2014. Nicole has worked as a Customer Service Rep. for the last five years and enjoys ensuring a pleasant shopping experience for all customers. Nicole’s favorite part of working at Gardner-White is the awesome people she has the privilege of working with.
Nicole’s favorite item is the Tempur-Pedic mattress collection, “It is very comfortable and supports every inch of your body, unlike some other mattresses.”
Outside of work, Nicole loves watching movies and relaxing on her very own Tempur-Pedic mattress; she also sells Jamberry Nails.
Nicole graduated from Eisenhower High School in 2009 and went to Macomb Community College where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Science.
Jamie D. – Office Manager
“I love decorating cakes and I am pretty good at it too!”
Jamie D. is the Office Manager at the Taylor store; she has been a part of the Gardner-White Furniture family since 2007. Jamie’s favorite part of working at Gardner-White is knowing every day will be different, there is never a dull moment! “Working for this company is like a big family with a lot of crazy brothers and sisters,” says Jamie.
Jamie’s favorite piece of furniture is the
Cabernet Bed, “it will be mine one day!”
Outside of work, Jamie spends time with her three wonderful kids and her oversized Puggle named Gordo. Currently, Jamie is planning a graduation party for her son who is turning 18 the same month he is graduating!
Jamie went to Cody High School, is a massage therapist, and loves decorating cakes. Jamie is also an animal lover and is looking into buying a mini pig to add to her loving home…also to keep her pug company!
