Meet The Team: Ella – Client Support Executive

  |   By  |  0 Comments

We continue our sporadic series of introducing you to members of the Glint team and this week it’s the turn of Ella, Client Support Executive, who is based in the US.

Ella is a Colorado local, born and raised in Denver and currently living in the Rocky Mountains outside of the town of Black Hawk. Ella’s professional background was developed in the legal cannabis industry, and her draw to emerging and pioneering industries is what sparked her interest in Glint. Ella does have a long background in handling physical gold, however, as she grew up around gold leaf, learning gilding skills from her mother.

Ella enjoys spending her free time with her partner, Max, and two dogs, Mo and Penny, and spending time exploring the national forest near her home. Ella’s favourite creative outlet is in the kitchen, exploring new culinary creations as well as honouring classic family recipes; she is best known for her cheesecake, various pies, and pasta dishes.

Ella’s plant collection

 

To enhance her culinary adventures, Ella has an ever-growing plant collection, where she loves to pick fresh herbs to season her dishes. To get an idea for Ella’s favourite TV shows and movies you only need to read the nametags for her plants, such as Larry David, Peter Parker, and Shrek. Ella is looking forward to celebrating her future milestones with Glint with gold-leaf decorated cheesecakes and other sweets, made by herself, of course.

Meet The Team: Iva – Operational Compliance Executive

When you call Glint for assistance with your account you will always speak to a real human being – no automated bots here! We pride ourselves on giving the best possible personal – and human – service.

As humans, the Glint team is not just about gold – we all have lives outside the office.

Take Iva for example, who is one of our Operational Compliance Executives in the US. Iva (pronounced EE-VAH) originates from Bulgaria but now lives in Colorado. She and her husband settled in the US about 10 years ago. They have a two year-old German Shepherd and love to travel. Iva joined Glint in 2020 and says “I love my job as it’s exciting, I’m learning something new every day and the team is absolutely amazing!”. Her father “was very artistic person” and inspired Iva to take up photography. Now, in her leisure time, she has “an interesting niche” role as a photographer of minerals.

When not helping our clients or taking amazing photos, Iva likes to read autobiographies (Matthew McConaughey’s Greenlights and Olav Thon’s Billionaire in a Parka are currently in a queue) and make beaded jewellery, unwinding from the daily stresses of life.

The mornings, Iva drinks an expresso and swaps that in the evenings for Bourbon Mules, sometimes accompanied by a “proper” Margherita pizza, ideally served in her favorite restaurant, Lino’s Trattoria and Pizzeria in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
