- Bonus Question:
Walked in to Healthies on Hunter and was greeted with a warm welcome and a smile to boot! You can really see that Jennifer is really passionate about what she does. Her goals are heavily rooted in maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
It was apparent that she really cares about her work and helping people from her anecdotes of her time spent with her family and the love she has for her customers.
I had just ate brunch at M & M diner, and that was a delight in and of itself. So I expressed that I wanted something light to try and Jennifer suggested a tea after careful consideration of my personal taste she suggested a coconut, cherry, and orange tea and it did not disappoint.
It is worth mentioning that during the time of the interview Jennifer had multiple customers enter, many of which, she knew. They came in during their breaks at work or in between errands. The cozy feel and vibe sets the tone for a relaxing environment that you could see take weight off their customers.
