When I came across this opportunity, I felt like I was ready for a change and a challenge. Being in the optical industry for 15 years, I have always worked in private Optometry and optical shops. This will be my first time working in a start-up environment. Being Store Manager will give me a chance to grow and improve professionally and also help others achieve their goals as well. With JINS’s success in Japan, I cannot wait to see what the company can achieve here.
What are some of your main
My main responsibilities are supervising and managing my awesome team members and making sure everyone is consistent, comfortable, and experts working in optical. My personal daily agenda includes maintaining a great relationship with everyone to make sure I am able to answer all their questions and concerns, both internally and on the customer level. I am working closely with my supervisor on staff recruitment, layout of the store, and training on the new Supra edger. He is also teaching me Japanese. Arigatogozaimasu!
How would you define your
experience thus far?
My experience has been AMAZING. Everyone here has been very patient and supportive thus far. I had an opportunity to visit Japan in December of 2014 and it was life changing. I had a chance to see the brand new headquarters building and also to meet the CEO. Being there and seeing the success of the company gave me confidence and excitement in working with JINS; not to mention all the delicious food and sightseeing Japan has to offer.
What would you like to
accomplish at JINS?
I would like to help JINS grow their brand and accomplish their goals of coming here to San Francisco. Being a native, I am very excited and honored they decided to open their first Flagship store in my hometown. At the same time, I want to help my team accomplish their goals along with mine, to improve our skills and experiences as a team and grow with the company as it expands. My goal is to build a determined, dedicated, and committed team.
