Karen - Corporate Buyer

Karen - Apophyllite With Nature's Expression since: 2003

Who inspires you most at NE and why: Greg - The amount of effort he has put into the company over the years is Amazing. Just seeing how he did Tucson Gemshow all by himself was eye opening. All the effort that goes into getting the goods from ALL the suppliers would be unbelievable to most people. Not a lot of Business owners would put that much effort into acquiring some of the rarer items for individual customers. And the fact that he will not buy something someone has requested if he cannot re-sell it at a reasonable price is admirable.

Favorite Memory / Experience here: My first trip to buy goods at the Tucson Gem show. I was in awe of how big the show was and the diversity of products shown there. I saw many items I would like to have in my personal collection. Attending the Gem and Mineral show continues to be the highlight of my year here.

Favorite Product: I'm not sure I have ONE favourite product. It is the crystals and specimens that draw the most attention from me. I am constantly amazed at the beautiful things that Mother Earth produces. But if I had to pick a favourite it would probably be the apophylite clusters. Especially the ones with other inclusions to add to the uniqueness of them.

Vicky - Manufacturing Work Leader

Vikki With Nature's Expression since: 2004 - I started first with just piecework and then about 5 years ago I joined the warehouse team.

Favorite Memory / Experience here: The Christmas parties!

Favorite Product: I really love all of our bracelets!

Melissa - Marketing Projects Manager

Mel with sheep With Nature's Expression since: January 2010

Who inspires you most at NE and why: Greg Stump inspires me to make decisions that have a positive ripple effect - on myself, my team, the whole company and our customers. He has always provided guidance through positive reinforcement and by his own example.

Favorite Memory / Experience here: I worked at the Head Office for 6 years and when I was ready to chase my dream of building a homestead on Vancouver Island, Greg and Linda-Ann supported me in working remotely. When I visit every couple months it's like a family reunion. I also love it when the whole team dresses up for a themed staff event - seeing people in costume shows a side that is silly and fun. Our team building workshops with horses facilitated by Linda-Ann are truly special. I always feel more grounded and much closer to my work family.

Favorite Product: When I look closely at a crystal or mineral it gets my imagination going. Sometimes I can see a whole world inside of a quartz point with inclusions, or I'll find that perfect wish stone because it has beautiful markings. My absolute favourite stone is labradorite, the way it catches the light and looks like the Northern lights. I have many of our products in my home - a salt lamp in my living room, prayer flags all over my garden and bells on my front gate.

Margaux (AKA Frenchie) - Account Manager

Margaux With Nature's Expression since: 2013

Fave Products: Labradorite stone - Lore of the Inuit peoples claim "Labradorite fell from the frozen fire of the Aurora Borealis, an ordinary stone that transforms to the extraordinary, shimmering in a mystical light that separates the waking world from unseen realms."

About Me: On top of the French language and European culture I incorporate into my customer service, I always listen and learn what you like to make sure you receive the best quality of service and product. I aim to bring you closer to Nature's Expression! Ask me for a video tour, a skype or a Facetime. I provide a superior customer experience because of my positive energy. This stems from my passions of sailing, biking and beaching. "The five ups of life: Buckle up, Start up, Keep it up, Don't give up, Cheer up"

Julia - Account Manager

Julia With Nature's Expression since: 2014

Fave Products: The products I am most passionate about at Nature’s Expression are all of the crystals, rocks, gems, stones, minerals, fossils and more crystals! Our warehouse is a truly amazing place and if any of our customers get the chance to visit Vancouver, I highly recommend making an appointment to come and see all the crystals in person!

About Me: My background is in art and design. I like to look at each stone as if it is a piece of art and I take pride in hand picking beautiful stones for my customers. Everyone at NE would describe me as detail-oriented, organized and creative. I love taking photos and showing my customers what is new every time a new shipment of crystals arrives here. I really enjoy working in our warehouse and seeing my customers everyday. When I am not at work, I am either at the beach or out exploring with my dog Dash (he is a miniature dachshund).

Roxanne - Account Manager

Roxanne With Nature's Expression since: 2016

Favorite Memory / Experience here: Walking through the warehouse on my first day on the job I was awestruck by the giant amethyst cathedrals and was excited to be part of an innovative visionary team.

Favorite Product: I am a big fan of all the stones and crystals, especially selenite, black moonstone, and prehnite with black epidote. I could list more but the list would be long!! I also love the Tibetan singing bowls and our own Zenature brand crystal water bottles.

About Me: I have over 20 years of B2B sales experience within the wholesale and print-advertising industries. I value the relationships I have built with my customers in order to help them choose the best products to ensure business growth and overall satisfaction.

My personal mantra is: Life is a journey and everything happens for a reason whether it is big or small. We can choose to be passive or be proactive and overcome our fears, set our own goals, and do the best to reach them.

I am passionate about the outdoors especially if it involves time at the beach or up in the mountains skiing and hiking. I love spending quality time with my family and friends.

Alex - Warehouse Assistant: Pricing Specialist

With Nature's Expression since: 2017

Who inspires you most at NE and why: Michele – selfless and holds no judgement, has seen the good, bad and ugly from everyone here and still comes smiling trying to help and gives her all.

Favorite Memory / Experience here: Too many to count but a few gems...

  • Accidentally backordering a customer survey code (after being told not to)
  • Dumb questions or the “they’ve seen it all mistakes”
  • Picking / Packing and meowing to other staff
  • Finding out I was pregnant and how supportive and helpful people were.

  • Favorite Product: My top 5: Amber, Amethyst, Labradorite, all moonstone (mostly blue) and gold tiger eye.

Favorite Memory / Experience here: Everyday is a new experience, I’m always learning something new which is awesome, and the good memories I have are always related to somebody laughing about a joke or a silly mistake someone made.
