Greenie of the Month is a tradition we hold at Vertical Harvest in our Jackson Hole greenhouse. Each month our entire team votes on a person that exemplifies the VH pillars. The person that is chosen is celebrated and given a hand-made card signed by the entire team. This tradition helps us uphold our values and recognize the outstanding actions of our coworkers. Whether it is showing up for someone as a friend, bringing positive energy into the farm, or taking on a challenge to support the mission.. our greenies are recognizable for so many reasons!
JOJO DENMARK | Packaging & Fulfillment Manager
Jojo not only works hard, she cares deeply about all of the people she manages. She listens, even when the day is busy and stressful, and responds thoughtfully. Even though she sometimes throws tomatoes (ouch!), she livens up any room she’s in with her humor and kindness. We are so grateful to have her here and I’m excited to see how she continues to shape our culture in amazing ways.
Jojo is a Vibe. Her exuberance fills a room because she will not let you out of her sight until she has either lovingly harassed you, asked you about your day or has struck you with her magical blue eyes and smile. She exercises patience, acceptance, bravery and strong-will. She does not stray away from a challenge but rather she invites others in to feel a part of the team she has created to succeed.
JoJo leads by caring for those around her with her natural management skills. She has been a fierce advocate for making the packaging room a more welcoming, efficient department. She is such a warm, often goofy, resilient presence in the greenhouse that improves everyone’s day. I am so excited to see what JoJo will accomplish in the new year – congrats JoJo!
JoJo is one of the sweetest people I know, both in the greenhouse and in life, in general. I haven’t worked one on one with her very much, but she’s always willing to bend over backwards to accommodate my needs. Thanks for being you, JoJo, and congrats on this amazing achievement!
JoJo is a natural leader. Her energy is infectious and working hard for her is easy. With JoJo, I know that I am always thought after, and she is unquestioning in her service to her people the Greenhouse. I am blessed to have such a witty, caring, patient, and intelligent manager.
