After traveling and working on farms in Europe all summer, former interim general manager Rebekah Valentine returned to the Co+op as the wellness buyer in mid-August.
“I applied for the wellness buyer position because it complements my interests in herbal and natural wellness/medicine and yet has remarkably less responsibility than my previous position,” she says, noting that one of her main goals is to make the department as user-friendly as possible.
“It’s great to have Bekah back,” says Interim General Manager Tim Morrison. “She’s managed several different departments and the entire store. She’s an asset to the team, and it’s helpful to have someone who can basically field anything.”
