We decided it was long past time for you to get to know a little more about the star who keeps the day-to-day operations running at Pacific Pickle Works. We asked her a few questions to have her tell you a little bit about what she does at the pickle factory, and a little bit about what she does when she's not at the factory. Here's what she said!
Your Real Name: Jackie Gove
Your Pickle Alias: 2nd Pickle
How long have you been with Pacific Pickle Works? Just over 2.5 years
What do you do and what is your role at PPW? Officially I’m the Operations Manager and work to ensure all the pieces are connected and running well for all pickle related production, management, event planning and shipping. Unofficially my to do list is too long and diverse to recount, but essentially I help fill in any extra gaps and make sure the Principal Pickle stays sane!
Why pickles? Because they’re delicious and we make really really good pickles
What’s the BEST thing you bring to PPW as an employee? I am the unofficial official DJ and I like to think I bring a little joy and pop into the office everyday.
What’s your best pickle fact or pickle joke (keep it PG, and we mean for the Pickle Gherkins)? I’m a lesbian working for a pickle company trying to start the first LGBT cuke club in America.
What’s your favorite PPW product and/or pickle recipe? It’s a tie between the Mother’s Puckers and the Michelada Shrub.
What’s your favorite things to do outside of the Pickle Factory? Practice yoga, scoot around town on my bike, drink fancy overpriced cocktails and plan future traveling adventures.
How do people react when you tell them you work for a pickle company? At first there’s a distinct chortle and lots of giggling, then there are a lot of follow up questions.
Tell us something we don’t know about PPW. We keep a keg of beer on tap in the back at all times
Anything else you want us to know about you? I’m starting a bee garden at home and if anyone has any tips they would be greatly appreciated.
