Hello, my name is Dori Heller. I am the full time retail store manager and clerk and also help with marketing. I have been here since the very beginning (1995) and have worked in many different areas throughout the business, kind of wherever I was needed. I have been a bookkeeper, a HR rep, a shipper, a finisher, a Gourd Head (AKA Company Manager), a retail manager and a marketing assistant. I left a secure job to come and be part of a gourd crafting company owned by my sister and her husband. Many thought I was crazy, (GOURD? Working with family!) I say it was one of the best moves I’ve ever made. I have been able to have the flexibility to work at home and take care of my two children, Zack and Lauren.
In 2000, my husband Todd, came to work with me. In my spare time I enjoy gardening, reading, and spending time with my family.
