The biggest factor in making a good store into a great store are the employees! We’re particularly proud of our team here at ECCO, and we wanted to take a second to introduce them, so you can get to know them even better. You’ve already met Marissa, Melissa, and Ally, and now we’d love to introduce you to Laura.
ECCO Boutique: What is your favorite part of working at ECCO?
Laura: I really love empowering women to make them feel and look great!
EB: Are you originally from Vermont?
L: No, I actually moved here a year and a half ago from Westchester, NY and completely fell in love with Burlington. It’s just such a gem!
EB: How has it been transitioning from Westchester to Burlington? Anything that you’ve been surprised by?
L: When I thought of Vermont before, I always thought of Southern Vermont and the mountains and farms, and then you come to Burlington and it’s just a completely different Vermont than I’d ever seen before. I love it!
EB: This weather lately has been beautiful – is there anything in particular that you’re looking forward to this summer?
L: Definitely looking forward to the warmer temperature, summer is by far my favorite season. Last year I hiked Camel’s Hump, so I’m looking forward to going out more and finding new hiking spots.
EB: Camel’s Hump is such a great hike, it’s gorgeous up there, but a really legit workout too! What else do you like to do to workout?
L: I do Cross Fit at Cross Fit VT, and I do spin classes at Rev, so really that and hiking are my favorite ways to stay in shape for sure.
EB: What’s your favorite brand that we carry in the store?
L: So many to choose from, but I’d probably say that Ella Moss is my favorite.
EB: How about an item that came in that you just had to have as soon as you tried it on?
L: Without a doubt, the Citizens distressed Boyfriend jeans. Love them!
EB: Where was your last vacation?
L: My last vacation was a cruise to Bermuda. It was amazing, just so many things to do all the time.
EB: Any bucket list items that you want to cross off in the near future?
L: I’d love to give sky diving a try!
EB: And last but not least, any hidden special talents, or something that only a few people know about you?
L: I was a competitive ice skater when I was younger!
