What I enjoy most about working at Patryka Designs is getting to know our wonderful customers by assisting them in their search for a casual favourite or the perfect outfit for their special event, and becoming friends through fashion. I also enjoy the family-like work environment with my co-workers, the opportunity to create interesting visual displays, and managing our Facebook and Instagram accounts. Buying the merchandise for the store is a fun, fast- paced, and exciting opportunity to see all the latest fashions. Choosing the clothing and accessories are based on so many factors including: trends, textures, colours, creating fashion stories (outfits), customer feedback, sizing, and fit. We try very hard where possible to support Canadian designers and clothing made in Canada.

My favourite clothing lines are Jag, Shannon Passero, and Orb because of their fit, quality, and style.

Excellent customer service to me means being genuine, attentive, honest, and most importantly taking the time to get to know our customers. We are blessed to have amazing support from our local community as well as those who make a special trip to see us in Mill Bay.

I've worked in various areas of the retail sector over the past 25 years with the majority of my career at Purdy's Chocolates. Outside of work, I enjoy travelling, kayaking, camping, and time with my family and friends. (And my dog Zelda...:))
