Jess Stephens is the Account Coordinator here at Botanica!
At Botanica, Jess coordinates and communicates with all clients and works directly with our creative director,Zoë Gallina, owner, Ian Prosser and administrative assistant, Kyela Faett. She communicates with all of our clients and her best quality is undoubtedly customer service! You won’t catch Jess without a smile on her face. Well, you might once in a blue moon.. but that’s only if she’s hungry.
During our creative director, Zoë’ Gallina’s, maternity leave, Jess has stepped up and kept Botanica running smoothly and we can’t thank her enough!
“Jess is such a great friend to have and an amazing employee to work with. She is calm, collected, understanding and never judgmental. I am so lucky to see her across my desk each day!” Says Administrative Assistant, Kyela Faett.
We can’t help but enjoy seeing someone’s favorite quote. It always seems to speak to exactly who they are as a person. Jess’s favorite quote, a golden rule, reads her quite well:
“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”- Luke 6:31
And she adds, “I’m a firm believer in loving every single person, no matter who or what they are.”
We asked Jess why she likes working at Botanica and she answered:
“I don’t even know where to begin!! I love that I actually get excited to go in to work. (that’s saying something since I have a 45 minute commute every day!) I also love who I get to work with on a daily business and consider them like family. I think the thing I love more than anything is to make each bride feel special. I love getting that one email from a bride afterwards saying that her wedding was truly the day of her dreams because we made her vision come to life! I just love being able to be a part of such a monumental day for them. :)”
