Brand Manager, Oral Care
Explain a typical day in your job.
I am very lucky that I get to manage and oversee all the branding and marketing for Tom's of Maine toothpastes, mouthwashes and flosses. What's cool is that not only I am developing and testing new product ideas farther out to meet the changing needs of our consumers, I am also developing new, innovative ways to get more people to try the products we sell today. It's cool that I can have one foot in the future and the other foot in the present.
What attracted you to Tom's of Maine?
The people, the products, the company values and the community were perfectly aligned with me. Oh, and Maine of course. I grew up in Maine and love everything about this special state.

Our Simply White toothpaste. It tastes great and, in my biased and humble opinion, I think it's the best whitening toothpaste out there.
