Check out the two pictures here: the first is me in my Portillo's uniform when I was 17. The second is me outside the Portillo's in Buena Park, California the day before I accepted the most recent offer. If I had known in that first picture what I know now, I would've shown a little more enthusiasm.
I am honored to be the first ever marketing employee at Portillo's. Berkshire Partners recently purchased the company, and along with the existing Portillo's team, they have a great plan for the future. I'm happy to say that we can all expect to receive the same quality service and food from Portillo's going forward.
It's very difficult for me to leave Google — I love the company and still think it's the greatest on Earth. I'm so incredibly thankful to everyone at Google for all of the wonderful opportunities I've had over the past four years. On the long list of things I'll miss about working at Google, the incredibly smart and collaborative people are at the top.
Add This To Your To-Do List
I start at Portillo's in January. So when you're in the mood for a delicious beef and cheddar croissant or a great piece of chocolate cake, let me know. Maybe I'll meet you at your local restaurant.
