Meet the Team Tuesday: Kassidy Arredondo
Today’s Meet the Team Tuesday blog is all about Retail Lead, Kassidy Arredondo! Kassidy is originally from Visalia, California, and has been enjoying the sights and sounds of Seward for the past six months. This time last year, Kassidy decided that it was time to leave her hometown and try out seasonal work, especially in and around National Parks. Since then, she has worked in Olympic National Park, Yosemite National Park, and now around Kenai Fjords National Park. When her time at FTT comes to a close in October, she will be heading to Big Bend National Park in Texas for the winter.
It probably comes as no surprise that Kassidy loves being in the great outdoors in her free time, and she especially loves hiking. During her time in Seward, Kassidy has hiked Mount Marathon and Mount Alice and has loved taking in the views from above. Another one of Kassidy’s outdoor hobbies is soccer – both playing and watching – she can even juggle a soccer ball with her foot over 100 times in a row!
Kassidy’s favorite products that we offer at FTT are the incredible photography shots from Todd Salat, the Aurora Hunter. When asked why Todd’s photos are her favorite, Kassidy said, “He takes such beautiful pictures and allows people to enjoy the aurora even if they don’t get a chance to experience it for themselves” – we love that answer! Kassidy’s favorite of Todd’s photos is entitled Seward Candelabra and was captured from Miller’s Landing on Lowell Point looking back towards the town of Seward.
When she’s not exploring the beauty of her surroundings, Kassidy loves to curl up with her Nintendo Switch playing Zelda, especially on Seward’s rainier days. She also loves meeting people from all over, both customers in the store, and other seasonal employees, it’s part of why she loves seasonal work so much.
