Meet Addy Draper, #TCCFam member of the week. Her favorite part about working here? Being able to help people get the most out of the devices they interact with every single day.
First and Last Name: Addy Draper
Title: Store Manager
How long have you worked for TCC?: 5 years
Favorite part about working for TCC: I love that I feel like I'm part of a big family working here. Whether I call a store in my district or outside of my district, anyone is ready and willing to help me with any questions.
Favorite part about your specific job: Phones are a huge part of people's lives nowadays, and being able to help people with devices they use all day every day makes me feel like I'm helping make people's quality of life better. It is very rewarding.
Favorite phone: My favorite phone is the Pixel 2 XL. I like how simplified it is. The camera is amazing, and using google assistant is a breeze.
Favorite customer story: There is a customer I have been helping since I started 5 years ago. Throughout the years I have seen her numerous times. Last year I helped her get into a new phone. She told me that she had a rare form of cancer. Not only was she battling cancer, but she was battling getting out of an abusive relationship. I prayed with her on the spot. About 6 months later she came in and told me she had beat the cancer and escaped that horrible relationship. She told me that without people like me giving her words of encouragement, she didn't think she would be alive. She gave me a book with the nicest note written inside the front cover. I won't ever forget Nina.
Dream vacation: I think I live in one of the most beautiful places on earth (Pacific Northwest), but I would love to go to Ireland.
Favorite nonprofit: A local non-profit called Zeus's Friends. It's an organization that assists in finding "fur-ever homes" for pets they foster.
