It is easy to lose track when you have a long list of tasks, and there’s only so much time in a day. Stefanee is Juniper’s warrior who has mastered bouncing back from continuous deadlines. Get a little understanding of how Stef balances her life with work.
WHAT’S YOUR ROLE AT JUNIPER?
I am Juniper’s Administrative Assistant so I take care of all clerical duties to make sure everything is kept organized. I have had a little taste of customer service, sales, accounting, and production assistance so that I can have an overall understanding of the company.
WHERE ARE YOU ORIGINALLY FROM?
Right here at Brooklyn. I have lived in all the boroughs, besides the Bronx. I am currently in upstate New York, but Brooklyn holds a special place in my heart.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT JUNIPER?
There are numerous things, but Shant’s passion for Juniper is what stands out to me. I’ve known many bosses whose goal was the next dollar, and the end result was turning over the most profit. Shant actually cares about the quality and design of his products and where Juniper stands in the industry. He stresses every detail because his heart is actually in it.
My coworkers are also worth mentioning. They are a solid group of dedicated individuals who care about putting good work forward and taking pride in the company before themselves.
WHAT ARE YOUR INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF WORK?
My free time always depends on my mood. I can spend the entire day watching serial killer shows on Netflix in the same spot on the couch with my cat (Sir Barnaby), or go on a mini road trip and end it with a 3-hour hike.
WHERE DO YOU USUALLY HANG OUT IN NEW YORK?
I love all the great brunch spots, museums, and dive bars in New York City. However, my most favorite New York spots are upstate in Rhinebeck or Beacon.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE LIGHTING FIXTURES AT JUNIPER, AND WHY.
I love the Wall-Mounted THIN Primaries Triangle, which is actually installed in our Brooklyn showroom. It is just so mesmerizing and boss-like. Second favorite? The THIN Surface Mount Vanity Light because the glow that it gives in the mirror is everything!
