Staff Profile - Carol Marie

Since writing this profile last year our family was blessed on 3/6/09 when we welcomed my gorgeous son, Sammy into this world. Every day I enjoy sharing those special moments and new experiences with him!

Staff Profile - Carol Marie (with CWDkids since 2006)

Over the years, I have been employed by big and small businesses. I have come to realize that employees at a family run business feel more appreciated; we are more than a number. In 2006, I was researching small businesses in the area and found that CWDkids was hiring! I applied to be a sales associate at our retail locations and was hired. I could sense the family atmosphere and was really excited to start on a new adventure.

In late December of that year, I moved to Crewe, VA which is about an hour and 20 minutes away from Richmond. I found that I needed to begin my work day earlier and luckily CWDkids found a way to accommodate my new schedule. I moved from the stores to the corporate office and began running early morning reports and working in our retail warehouse.

As I got comfortable with reports from our office systems, more responsibilities were added to my plate. I began to maintain spreadsheets for our retail buyers along with ticketing the clothing so I have a very good understanding of the garments and brands that we carry.

When Kelly moved to Ohio last fall, I was given a great opportunity. I have taken over customer service emails, website maintenance, email campaign setup and also put together many of our web marketing reports. I am very excited to be able to help customers so please contact me at if you have any questions or need any assistance with your order.

Outside of work, I am quite busy. I met the love of my life almost 3 years ago. My family grew quickly as he has 3 children and 2 lovable (at least to those they like) Rottweilers, an American and a German. The American Rottweiler fell in love with my Staffordshire Terrier - they even act like a couple, sharing food and toys! We live in the middle of 4 acres with a pond. I love that you could drive right past my driveway without noticing it. Even GPS systems will tell you that you have arrived at your destination about 2 miles from my house!

Carol Marie's Tidbits:
  • I love football....just face it, the Giants rule!
  • My next dog is going to be a Mastiff.
  • I had my first baby, Sammy in March!
