What college do you attend and what is your major?

I am a junior at Drexel University majoring in Design and Merchandising.

What is your position here at Destination Maternity? What are your daily tasks

I work as a Merchandising Intern in the Motherhood Maternity department for sweaters, dresses and knits. On a typical day, I pull samples for meetings, place orders to vendors, create and update styles of clothing and other miscellaneous tasks. I have also recently taken on assisting a research project that will add another sector to the company and hopefully escalate our Motherhood sales in the future!

What are the best parts about working at Destination Maternity?

While in class, I have been able to utilize the skills I have learned as a result of my hands on experience with buying. The work environment is welcoming and always willing to teach me new things. I enjoy being able to see the products that have yet to hit stores. I have also been lucky enough to help with a variety of different departments including accessories, nursing, sleepwear and bottoms.

What is your go-to item in your closet?

My go-to item would probably be my black maxi skirt. It is easy, versatile and comfortable!

Intern to Employee: Meet Kristen!

What college do you attend and what is your major?

I’m a recent Penn State graduate with a degree in Psychology.

What is your position here at Destination Maternity? What are your daily tasks?

I began here at Destination Maternity as the visual intern while I was finishing up my degree program, and have stayed on post-graduation within the visual department as an independent contractor. My daily tasks vary from week to week. Some weeks I work in the stores or in the on-site mock-up store helping the visual team assemble the monthly floor sets for Motherhood Maternity and our Leased locations. During other weeks, I work in the office putting together floor set documents to send out to the field as well as also working on various projects for the visual department.

What are the best parts about working at Destination Maternity?

There are a lot of wonderful things about working here. It has been incredibly eye-opening to see how much time, effort and attention to detail goes into putting together visually interesting floor set displays. Furthermore, the change of pace between working in store and in the office as well as the constant addition of new product for us to display, ensures there is never a dull moment working. I thoroughly enjoy the work that I do, and the things that I’ve learned from all of my team members about working in this field are invaluable.

What is your go-to item in your closet?

I have a pair of beige wedges that I wear at least two to three times a week because they’re adorable, comfortable and go with literally every article of clothing I own. I’ve since bought two back-up pairs for when they get too worn out because I don’t know what I would do without them!
