Yvette Emmanuel – Order Desk
After joining the DNI team in October 2017 we soon realized what a valuable asset Yvettes positive attitude, thirst for knowledge and extensive customer service experience would bring to the team. Everyday Yvette has a smile on her face and possibly even a little “happy dance” to brighten everyone’s mood, it is impossible to be in a bad mood when she is around! Her main focus is to ensure every customer that phones or visits our showroom has a positive experience, finds what they need and leaves with a smile on their face.
Originally from the Toronto area, Yvette settled in the Grande Prairie area where she and her husband are raising their 3 young children. Spending time with her little family brings her a great amount of happiness, she also enjoys bopping along to her favorite songs, spending time with friends, scrapbooking and what she refers to as “glamping”.
Santana Gregor – Shipper/Receiver/Purchaser
Santana joined our team in November 2017 after her recent move to Grande Prairie from Prince George. Her past warehouse and customer service experience have been a great asset in improving our warehouse efficiency. A quick learner with a keen eye for details, Santana is responsible for every order that arrives in or leaves our warehouse and she strives to ensure every order is accurate with as few backorders as possible.
With her infectious laugh that is heard throughout the building several times a day Santana has brought a positive attitude to the DNI team. She enjoys spending time with her fiancé, visiting with friends and family and crafting.
