We had the good fortune of connecting with Caroline Podgurski and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Caroline, we’d love to hear about a book that’s had an impact on you.
Every pair of BirdRock Baby moccasins feeds a child for a day through the Feed My Starving Children charity. We are incredibly proud to work with this organization and to see our customer’s contributions have an impact on children around the world. Sending our donation each month and sharing our contribution with our team is an immense joy and driving force to continue to grow BirdRock Baby.
What should our readers know about your business?
I am incredibly proud of the BirdRock Baby customer experience. We made the commitment early in our company’s development to treat our customers like family and it means a lot to me that we live that commitment every day. Solving customer problems is incredibly rewarding and getting positive emails, messages, and adorable pictures are the most gratifying parts of running this business. Seeing our products in pictures of important milestones in other people’s lives gives me great joy.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We spend a lot of time at the beach and love the various reefs of La Jolla, the tide pools of Cabrillo, and hiking Torrey Pines. Balboa Park is one of our favorite places in San Diego. The zoo and all of the museums are a great way to spend a few days. We also love walking around Old Town. One of our favorite places to eat as a family is Casa Guadalajara.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to give a shoutout to my children. My daughter was the inspiration for BirdRock Baby and was our first product tester! Setting a good example for my kids is a big motivation for me to keep growing this business. Creating quality products, having a strong work ethic, treating people right, and giving back to our community are all values I uphold in our company and want to pass on to my children. My kids’ zest for life and boundless enthusiasm spark my passion to keep creating, learning, and growing.
