Aimee Eliason‘s employment journey started when she entered our Career Catalyst internship program during its inaugural year in 2014. The program office was located in Hunt Valley at the time, and Aimee quickly found a job at the neighboring Strategic Factory. However, she is the kind of employee who is so talented that she worked herself out of a job. For four years, she was the file clerk assigned to digitize Strategic Factory’s files. She finished much sooner than anticipated, which meant she had to find another job.
Aimee was prepared. The Career Catalyst staff jumped right in and supported Aimee during her job search. A lightbulb went off for the program’s Director Terri Spurrier who recently connected with the owner of Maryland Brand who was in need of hard working employees. She knew that Aimee would like the creative environment at their company. After a tour of their facilities, Aimee knew this was the place for her.
In 2018, Aimee began working full-time for Maryland Brand. As an artist, she is particularly suited to her duties. She screen prints t-shirts, tags them, operates the folding machine and matches paint colors for the stenciling machine. “I smile every day because I love my job. I’ve never been happier,” she says. And the company feels the same about her.
Just recently, Aimee had the opportunity to design her own tee shirt, and the final product, the Lightning Bolt Pup shirt, is available now! Check it out here: https://puppielove.com/
