Why do you work for Patagonia?
I like to give meaning to my work, to be part of a company where the ultimate goal goes beyond increasing shareholder wealth.
What was your path to Patagonia?
In the beginning, it was a journey of discovery but, as time went by, I grew to understand the philosophy of Patagonia. People here are given freedom to translate the mission into their own job and we are not limited by the responsibilities of our roles, but, instead, set our own limits. And most importantly, we get to work with many great colleagues who are equally passionate.
How has working here changed you?
I have grown a lot in my knowledge thanks to my amazing coworkers, and it has helped me grow as a person – that’s the privilege of working with great people. You may not notice it often, but it’s surprising when you add up all the small changes you learn along the way.
What is the best thing about your job?
Knowing that your actions can have an impact, that everyone’s voice is important, and all ideas are considered - no matter how big or small.
