Meet the Republic – Brooke C.Meet the Republic
I am excited to introduce Brooke Cariski, Raw Republic’s Regional Manager! She will also be managing our newest storefront in Brickell that is due to open this month, so I couldn’t think of a more suitable person to highlight on The Raw Deets!
Brooke has been a close friend of most of the Raw management team for decades. To see how she is bringing her fiery enthusiasm and wisdom to the table has been undeniably motivating. I appreciate how she has the ability to reveal the best qualities in all of us, and help us create solid roadmaps for not only the future of Raw, but for our personal goals as well!
Anyone that works on her team is fortunate because she not only keeps the energy high, but is very focused and knows how to get the job done.
Being that we grew up together, I had to blast to the past and ask, did you have any teachers that inspired you?
“Mrs. Evans. I didn’t realize it at the time because I was only in 2nd grade, but she created a really happy place for me during my childhood. It was a nonjudgmental classroom where kids could play and do as they pleased.”
How about a favorite subject?
“Math, always. I was in gifted courses (advanced level).”
What do you like to do in your free time?
“You can tell the world that I love soaking up the sun, jogging all around South Florida, and spending time with family & friends.”
What is your greatest flaw?
…and your greatest strength?
What do you feel like are the most significant characteristics of the people who have been your best bosses?
“They gave me ultimate trust and freedom to express myself fully. They gave me tough criticism when I needed it, even if I didn’t want to hear it! They also cared about me as a whole person.
This has reminded me that I am here to take care of my team, and my team is here to take care of our customers. People are my first priority!”
If you had a few words to describe yourself best, what adjectives would you choose?
“Fun, witty/quirky, and genius 🙂 “
and beautiful too!
Our boss/friend Jesse wanted to add: “How often do you eat at Raw?”
“5 days a week!”
That sounds like me! True dedication and love right there 🙂
