Role: Retail Supervisor
Meet Maddie, our Retail Supervisor or, rather, Superstar. She makes sure our Company Store is fully stocked and beautifully organized every day so our visitors can find the perfect gift or keepsake.
How did you get involved with Britannia Mine Museum?
When I moved from England with my family two and a half years ago, we originally lived in Britannia Beach. I didn't have a car to begin with and I saw an ad for a position at the Museum. I thought, "That would be super convenient. What if it worked? That'd be great!" And it did. I live in Squamish now, but it's still an easy commute.
What's your favourite part about working at the Museum?
Summers. When we get a big influx of staff here, it's a nice vibe. You meet way more people. Every year, new people come to work here for the summer and, even if they only stay for the summer, you make more friends and meet new people.
You moved from England to BC. What do you like about it here?
I didn't know how long I'd be here initially, but then i just loved it so it's permanent now. I love how pretty it is. All the mountains. I love hiking and biking. This is the perfect place. I don't like big, busy cities, so it's nice to be in Squamish.
What's your favourite thing to do in Squamish?
Hiking and biking. I only recently got into biking this summer, so I'm trying out new trails. It's really fun. Up by Quest University, there are some really good ones, like Half Nelson. I'm a bit of an amateur, but I'm learning.
Come see Maddie at our Company Store, open daily 9 to 5. No admission required to visit the gift shop!
