Meet our team member – Tammy Willis! Tammy has been with Amélie’s at our Uptown bakery for nearly 16 months. She works in the front of house taking care of customers. In addition, she has also helped train new team members as they are going through onboarding. Tammy is a nurturer and both a month and grandmother so to her caring for and assisting people is only natural.
She joined our team after a good friend of hers shared how much fun she had every day at work and that she thought Tammy would enjoy it as well. Helping and being nice to people is the part of her job that brings Tammy the most joy and allows her to use the skills that come the most naturally to her. When asked what the best part of being on the Amélie’s team, Tammy responded that she enjoys the family atmosphere.
Why was she selected as for our Team Member Spotlight?
Assistant General Manager, Andrew Vogl has worked with Tammy and loves having her our the Uptown bakery team. He shared why she is such a valuable team member:
“She’s one of the hardest workers we’ve ever had in our bakery and she is always serving our customers with a smile. Every morning that Ms. Tammy works she is ready for whatever the day may throw at her. She always has something fun to say and keeps all of our spirits high in the front of house. Ms. Tammy has become pretty well known to our customers. She is always there in the morning to serve them and make sure they get what they need. In March, Tammy will return to the coast with her family. Selecting her for a team member spotlight is the one way we want to salute the wonderful customer service she has provided us with over the past year.”
Favorite Menu Item:
The tarts. Loves all of them. Key lime is her favorite; the pate sucree makes it perfect
Outside of the bakery:
When Tammy isn’t serving customers, she enjoys being in and around the water; especially participating in all watersports including skiing and riding a jet ski.
Just as our recipes consist of a broad mixture of ingredients and flavors, our team of talented employees is a unique blend of all people. We love our fun and open environment, where we make sure our employees know they are welcome to bring their whole (or real) selves to work every day. Our values emphasize this, as well as our overwhelming passion for serving great food and beverage!
