Natasha Manning: Division Cheese Specialist, King Soopers
I was invited to interview for my current job when my supervisor remembered I had self-published a children’s book I had written and illustrated. She felt the job required someone with an entrepreneurial and creative spirit. As I had little previous cheese experience, I began delving into cheese and acquiring as much cheese knowledge as possible. I am still learning more about cheese on the daily and the interest began then!
I work for King Soopers City Market as a Division Cheese Specialist. Luckily for me, no day is typical! It could involve training associates about cheese, working in one of our 80 cheese shops, merchandising cheese shops, planning remodels and grand openings, participating in offsite cheese events or analyzing cheesy data!
My thanks to everyone participating in my 2015 Virtual Q&A with Cheese Professionals. I hope all of you, my loyal readers, are enjoying this as much as I am…
Interviews will continue throughout 2015… sometimes, they will be “stand-alone” and sometimes they will be presented as round-table discussions with several Cheese Professionals answering the same question. Those participating includeCheesemakers, ACS CCPs™, Cheesemongers and Cheese Professionals and Experts who contribute to this Wonderful World we call “Cheese”.
