Meet the Team: Wendy Castellanos

1. Where are you from?

I was born and raised in Everett, Washington (30 minutes north of Seattle).

2. What is your favorite food?

Favorite food: Ice cream. My dream job is actually to be an ice cream taster haha! I pretty much love everything that is sweet and bad for you.

3. What is your favorite color?

Tiffany blue. It's a beautiful and calming color.

4. What is you favorite movie?

Lately it's been Trolls. I love watching it with my 2 year old. It's such a cute movie and we love all the singing.

5. What is your favorite TV show?

I'm still a reality TV junkie. I like The Voice, Dancing with the Stars and the Teen Mom series on MTV. My dad calls it "Junk Food TV".

6. Which is your favorite shop?

Now that I'm a mom, I have to say Target. I love their seasonal accessories, craft supplies, basic clothing and snacks! I also am a true Nordies girl after working for Nordstrom for 12 years!

 7. What motivates your every morning?

 I like to be busy so having a full to-do list is something I look forward to tackling every day. 

8. What is your dream vacation?

That's a tough one, especially since I live in a vacation town that many consider "paradise". I love traveling to New York and I love to experience different cultures so maybe traveling across Europe would be my dream trip!

9. What part do you play in the team?

I work virtually as an online Project Manager. I get to keep our website fresh and eclectic, create inspiration email campaigns, manage our Etsy/online sales channels - really a bit of everything that is online related.

10. What is your favorite thing about working at Eclectic Array?

The people. Whether it's teasing my coworkers, meeting customers from all over the world, or getting to know the talented artisans that create our products - the people are what make Eclectic Array so incredible.

11. What do you do when you are not at the store?

When I'm not at the store, I'm chasing around my 2 year old. He teaches me something new every day and I love seeing the world through his eyes. I also like to play tourist in our Cabo San Lucas town - we take boat rides to the arch, go paddleboarding, and my favorite of all, I love to eat at all the unique restaurants Cabo has to offer!
