For those of you who don’t know me yet, my name is Brittney Barsi, and I’m the Assistant Manager at Assembly.
I joined the team after graduating from UWSP in the spring of 2019 with a degree in marketing, as well as, a minor in Spanish.
Just for funsies, I’ll throw in a few of my favorite things to do in my free time. Believe it or not, I LOVE musky fishing! My dad and I go up north almost every weekend during the summer. While I’m up north, I also enjoy water skiing and cross-country skiing – honestly, just put me on skis and I’m good. About once a year, I try to go on a big trip. My grandparents are big believers in travel and its benefits, so I was fortunate to be able to go on quite a few trips with them growing up. My favorite places we’ve been to are Hungary, Germany, and Italy!
Since Assembly’s opening in 2016, I’ve been a consistent supporter and friend of the shop. I admired Quyen’s vision for Stevens Point and always felt like I was shopping with a friend when I visited her at the shop.
A month before graduation, I decided to send in my resume and cover letter, hoping for a marketing role within the shop. A week or so later, I was offered the position of Marketing Manager!
Over the next few months, I started forming relationships with our regulars. I love seeing familiar faces and catching up, as well as, meeting new people and showing them around the shop. I truly believe there is something here for everyone.
Behind the scenes, I began taking on more responsibility. I researched brands and pieces I would like to see in the shop and passed my suggestions on to Quyen. I was heavily involved in our scholarship and allocating funds to the scholarship and its funding, so we could continue to spread the good.
A few other tasks that I take on are: newsletters, social media content, community sponsorships, and event and sale planning.
Over these past few months, I’ve really felt like Quyen’s right hand woman in the shop. My day-to-day tasks are changing, but I still maintain my marketing focus, which leads me to announce my promotion to Assistant Manager!
See ya in the shop!
