Alexi Fish was initially hired as an Order Entry Specialist in March 2022, and she now serves on the Account Management team. Alexi came to us with experience in the restaurant industry and, more specifically, she previously bartended and managed a dive bar in Hampton, NH. We knew that if she could do that, Alexi would have excellent people skills and be accustomed to a fast-paced environment.
We were not disappointed – Alexi has totally delivered! Within a few weeks of Alexi being here, one of our longtime employees unexpectedly went out on medical leave.
On top of assisting her own customers, Alexi jumped in to handle the hundreds of customers who had years-long established working relationships with someone else. Alexi is cool, calm and collected, and we’re so glad to have her on our team! Learn more about Alexi in her own words:
What skills / hobbies / habits have you picked up during COVID lockdowns?
I drank more, I ate more, but I also painted more, I like to paint. I think that’s pretty much all I did – eat, drink and paint. [Bobby also did some painting during lockdowns!]
Where did you grow up?
Syracuse, New York. Not technically Syracuse. It’s a town called Fayetteville-Manlius – it’s like farmland out there, kind of. [Asked how she ended up here] I actually have a bunch of friends that I went to high school with that ended up moving here! So like my best girl friend lives in Maine now, but she was in Portsmouth. And two of my best guy friends lived here, so I came to visit the year before I moved here and I loved it. My buddy bought a house and he was flipping it, and he had an extra room, so I just said screw it and moved away from home!
What’s your favorite smell?
Oh God that’s tough. Probably my grandparents’ house. It’s a very nostalgic smell.
What do you listen to in the car?
Music. I don’t know, I like 70s, 80s, 90s music. I was listening to Dave Mattthews Band on the way here.
Describe your happy place.
Being with my family.
What would you choose for your “last meal”?
That’s really tough. But I think since I moved here, it’s become an easier question to answer. Probably lobster pie from Petey’s.
Your house is on fire, what’s the first thing you grab?
Oh! I have a box filled with like, I don’t know, old pictures and I have sand from when I went to Iceland and money from other countries. But yeah, it’s full of sentimental things. Probably that. I’d probably grab my boyfriend too! [she laughs]
Where is/was your favorite place to visit while traveling?
I would say probably Block Island. My family, my cousins – we have a huge family of cousins, but I see the ones that live in Rhode Island more often than I see the other ones – so every summer we go to Block Island and get a little cottage. We spend the week there. It’s wicked fun! Last year, we got a really big house, but usually it’s like a little tiny place and we’re sleeping on the couches or on the ground, wherever we end up.
What’s your most used emoji?
Oh probably the face palm. 🤦
If you could hang out with someone (living or deceased) for the day, who would you pick?
Probably my grandfather that I never got to meet. He died before I was born, he seemed like he was cool.
Do you have one favorite holiday tradition?
Every Christmas Eve, we used to go to Lights on the Lake, and then we would go to a Japanese hibachi restaurant. It’s so random, but it was right down the street from it, and we were always starving after Lights on the Lake because it’s like an hour drive. That’s probably one of my favorites.
What’s your favorite song to dance to?
I would say probably Come On Eileen gets me pretty pumped up, if I’m thinking weddings. I just went away this weekend and I was dancing to every song that was played, so it doesn’t take much! Or Old Time Rock n Roll.
