Name: Virginia Van Kampen
Role at Thrive: Social Media Specialist
Location: Kamloops, BC (Canada)
Family: I have one daughter who is 4.5 years old (such a fun age!). I have two older sisters and one younger brother. Soon I’ll be getting married and will inherit 3 more brothers and 2 more sisters, which will be really fun!
When did you start at Thrive? November 2016
What are some of the things you love about being a Thriver?
I love the flexibility of working at Thrive. Not only is working remotely a huge bonus from a typical job, but Thrive really understands and encourages that family comes first. As a mom, this is invaluable to me! Overall, Thrive stands by some amazing company values that I truly resonate with.
What’s the best smell ever?
That’s a tough one… I’d probably have to say fresh baking, or my mom’s lasagna.
You’re forced to join a traveling circus. What’s your job/talent?
Gosh.. probably nothing (I have 2 left feet!) But in my dreams, an acrobat! I’ve always wanted to learn gymnastics.
Best vacation: Beach, mountains, road trip, or combination?
Combo – I love adventure and seriously crave the ocean. A coastal road trip would be ideal.
You have to eat a certain snack every day for the rest of your life. Which snack do you pick?
I could eat peanut butter out of the jar any day, any time.
What was your very first job?
I grew up on a pretty big ranch, so work started pretty young! I think the first thing I ever got paid for was picking ginseng.
