Meet Our Team

Get to know the friendly faces behind Georgette! 

Jennifer Appleby Vines, Chief Executive Officer

WHAT DO YOU DO HERE?
My days at Georgette are filled with checking off ALL the to-do lists, guiding our team to check off their to-do lists, and making more to-do lists for the future of Georgette. Keeping the business in motion and moving forward, at a comfy pace, is where I feel most at home. In my spare office hours, I enjoy long walks with team mates around DTK and stirring up friendly banter at the lunch table. Oh, and office snacks. Definitely here for those - but they better be chocolate.
