5 Questions with Debbie E., Los Angeles Edition
From shoppers to members to engineers, marketers, and our shopper appreciation team, it’s the people who make Shipt, Shipt. In a special edition of this series, we get to know our California-based colleagues who can now use Shipt in their home state.
Email Marketing Coordinator and LA native Debbie E. has lived across the Golden State from San Diego to San Francisco, but her roots are in Los Angeles. Born and raised in Granada Hills, Debbie moved to San Diego for college before spending seven years in Hawaii. While a stark contrast to LA’s trendy, bustling lifestyle, she adapted to Hawaii’s down-to-earth, slower pace, finding her home once again by the beach.
A few moves across California later, Debbie has settled in San Francisco, joining the Shipt marketing team to help lead different forms of Shopper communications. While she loves the high energy and close-knit team at the Shipt SF office, the number one thing she misses about LA is her family and LA Dodger games. Get to know Debbie and her family’s loyalty to Dodger Blue.
What was your favorite part about growing up in California?
I love the warm weather and living close to the beach. I guess you could say I’m a true “California girl,” it’s always been the state for me.
What is your favorite California food?
Growing up in LA, my favorite food was anything from Manhattan Beach Pizzeria. It instantly brings back memories of hanging out by the beach in the summertime. In San Francisco, one of my favorite restaurants is Bistro Aix. It might not look like much from the outside, but they have a lively atmosphere and delicious, fresh farm-to-table California food. I also love a good taco from Las Fuentes in LA.
What has been your favorite memory at Shipt so far?
Visiting HQ in Birmingham and meeting everyone I work with remotely was a truly memorable experience. Having bi-coastal offices means you work with some incredible people that you’ve never met in-person before! Being able to connect names to faces and see their personalities live really united our team.
What does having Shipt in California mean to you?
I get to use Shipt for myself now! Whether it’s sending my family treats for birthdays and special occasions, or ordering groceries for myself on a weeknight, I can’t wait to integrate Shipt into my day-to-day life and share that experience with my loved ones in LA.
What always makes your Shipt order?
My Shipt order is usually full of produce. I love having fresh berries every week, and a true California grocery basket wouldn’t be complete without avocados.
