The Women Behind the Books: Celebrating International Women’s Day 2020

International Women’s Day celebrates the achievements of women every March 8. Today, we’d like to introduce you to some of the women on our Memphis production team. Each one of these women is a critical component in ensuring that every element of your photo project is crafted, packaged, and delivered with the utmost care. 

Our production team works together to share your images beyond the digital screen and help you craft a narrative of moments past in print. Together, let’s celebrate International Women’s Day with those that take pride in honoring every one of your memories with beautiful photobooks, calendars, cards, and prints.

Adrienne has been with the Mimeo Photos team for almost two years and is one of the key women putting our hardcover photobooks together. Her passion for Mimeo Photos starts with her immediate team members and credits them for enabling her to be successful. “Even though Mimeo Photos is a relatively young company and we have a relatively young team we take a lot of pride in our work,” said Adrienne, continuing, “and hope that our customers see that.” 

When Adrienne isn’t creating beautiful books she is at home with her three girls singing and dancing her way through life — talents she frequently shares with her team!

Bri has been a Mimiac for almost three years working in Mimeo Photos. She loves how the team feels like a family, and feels that love every day when she comes to work. Her role as Quality Analyst means she gets to see all of our products before they make their way to our customers. 

Her favorite element of her job? “Watching people’s lives unfold right in front of you,” says Bri. “We get to make something amazing for our customers.” Bri has two children and enjoys spending time doing fun activities and cooking with them.

Her biggest priority is to ensure our customers receive a product they will love and want to display since, “every day, every hour, every second is about delivering a high-quality product.” 

She loves that her role empowers her to coach and develop her teammates to constantly strive to make a better experience for our customers. She has two grandkids and a daughter and they give her her purpose and drive for doing what she does.

She knows that we need to do whatever it takes to get our product to our customers and is always willing to jump in and help anywhere there is a need. When Tori isn’t at work she is at home spending time with her daughter listening to music and reading.
