October: Michelle

October: Michelle

Michelle is our October employee of the month! Michelle has done so much amazing work for us this fall improving our website, online forms, and everything in social media. Get to know a bit more about Michelle below:

Q: Tell us something about yourself!
Michelle: Hi! I’m the Web and Social Media Assistant for Canadian Mattress Recycling. I am passionate about everything related to the environments, the circular economy, and waste management. I enjoy my work here at CMR since I get to tie in my environmental background with design and marketing. I enjoy helping Sue and Terryl share the fantastic work the company is doing to divert mattresses and furniture from local landfills!

Q: How long have you been at CMR?
Michelle: I started back in February 2018 so I’ve been here for just over 10 months, and love every moment of it.

Q: What do you do at CMR? 
Michelle: I help Terryl and Sue update and manage our social media profiles. I also maintain, edit, and update our websites, create graphics, respond to customers and reviews online, and blog about topics related to the environment. Chances are if you contacted the company online in the last year, you’ve spoken to me 🙂

Q: What’s the highlight of your day?
Michelle: Whenever people leave 5* reviews on our Google My Business page! It brings a smile to my face knowing that our service is really making an impact in our customers’ lives, by helping them pickup and recycle furniture and mattresses, which are difficult to transport, let alone recycle. Another highlight of my day is when people like, retweet, and comment on our social media posts. I like taking the time to read and respond to them!

Q: What charity did you choose to donate to, and why?
Michelle: My donation went to Ocean Wise, because they are doing a fantastic job raising awareness, funding research, and engaging youths in marine conservation across Canada. They rehabilitate injured marine mammals, coordinate shoreline cleanups, and also provide field school experiences up in the Arctic for Canadian youths.

Q: What’s your favourite thing about the holidays?
Michelle: Spending time with family and friends.

Q: What is your favourite Christmas song?
Michelle: It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas – Michael Bublé.

Q: In your opinion, what would be the best name for a dog or cat? 
Michelle: Waffles the Pembroke Welsh Corgi.
