Nicole is a senior studying Communication.

She started with the store her first quarter at UC Davis as a visual merchandising intern. The unit was very understaffed at the time, and so Nicole took on more responsibilities and eventually progressed to her role as director, which she’s held since June 2015. She loves the leadership challenges involved in her role and hopes to pursue leadership as a career.

As director, Nicole oversees all internal and external operations of the store and leads the management team. She sets the overarching vision for the unit and works closely with ASUCD.

In her free time, Nicole enjoys photography, graphic design, and reading.

Miuccia is a senior studying Managerial Economics and Communication.

During her first two years of college, Miuccia frequented the store because she loved how Aggie Reuse promoted environmentalism and provided students with the opportunity to be part of a tight knit community and gain professional experience. She took the chance and applied for Marketing Lead during her second year, and now she is part of the Aggie Reuse family.

As Marketing Lead, she works with the Marketing and Social Media interns to envision and communicate the Aggie Reuse image using a variety of small and large scale marketing efforts.

She enjoys running outdoors, working out at the gym, and making new friends from around the world.

Angela is a sophomore studying Managerial Economics.

During her first quarter, she learned of Aggie Reuse Store during a tabling event and would visit the store. When she decided to switch from her major from Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior to Managerial Economics, she wanted to find more opportunities in business and learn more about different types of businesses. She came across a job posting one day and decided to apply right away.

As the Assistant Store Manager, Angela helps plan different types of sale events with the Store Manager to reach the yearly quota. In addition, she assists in restructuring the sales team to promote communication, collaboration, and creativity. She hopes to create a fulfilling workplace and internship where interns can develop their interests and skills.
Angela enjoys making bad jokes, playing video games like Smite, blogging, and creating things.

Upcycling Lead

Vivian is a senior studying Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior.

Joining Aggie Reuse was a spontaneous decision for her last year. Since Vivian was an arts and crafts enthusiast, the position as an up cycler piqued her curiosity and she grew to absolutely love the art of creative reuse.

As Assistant Store Manager, Vivian plans sales projections with the Store Manager, guiding the sales team toward meeting store goals through strategic analysis, and fostering team cohesiveness through socials. She also leads the upcycling team, in which she oversees craft workshops and projects that the interns plan and create.

Vivian enjoys taking long walks outdoors, novel reading, crafting, knitting warm scarves, and creative writing.
