Director of Operations 

As Wooly Doodle’s first ever employee, Cherise is Elizabeth’s right-hand person and usually has her hands in everything. From managing team schedules, assisting with collection and production planning, ensuring the warehouse runs smoothly and overseeing operations, Cherise’s days are never boring!

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF TEAM WD?

I started working for Wooly Doodle 2 and a half years ago. I was coming off an extended mat leave after having my son and moving from Ottawa and I had zero idea what to do next. In came Elizabeth with a job offer that has literally changed my life. She took a leap of faith on me and I am so grateful for that. Working for WD has been such an amazing journey for me both personally and professionally.

To actually answer the question: My favourite things about working here are: all the new people I’ve met, co-workers and customers that have turned into friends. The mix of structure and creativity, and that every day is different. Always learning new things and how much FUN we have!

IF YOU COULD RIDE ONE ANIMAL INTO BATTLE WHAT WOULD IT BE?

When I first read this question to my husband he said a Hippo and I thought he was crazy but now I’m fully convinced. I would absolutely ride a hippo into battle. They have a super strong bite, they are fast on land and water, and they are huge. It would be basically like riding a living tank into battle.

FIRST THING YOU’LL DO WHEN THE PANDEMIC IS OVER?

When we moved back to SWO from Ottawa we decided that we would vacation in Ottawa for a week every summer and we were so sad to miss that tradition this past year. So as soon as it’s safe to do so we will absolutely be heading back there for some much needed time with our people in a place we still consider to be ‘home’.

FAVOURITE WD COLOUR PAST OR PRESENT

I guess this technically isn’t a colour but my favourite print is Starstruck. I’m definitely a monochrome kinda gal so this print was right up my alley. Every once and awhile I try to convince Elizabeth to bring it back from the vault but so far no luck!
