MEL SHANNON

COUNTER MAIDEN

Raised in Hawai’i, Mel grew up as a crazy little Wai’anae girl who hit the beach pretty much every day with her mom and dad.  As soon as she was able to get her workers permit at the age of 15, Mel started her career in the customer service industry. So far with her journey in retail, her key values include being honest, respectful to everyone, and practicing patience and understanding. Mel has been known to be calm and collected yet making sure everyone is having a blast. The main reason she loves what she does though is along with providing an amazing experience for customers, celebrating and creating memories with people throughout all walks of life. When she’s not selling things and educating people, you can catch her trying to sing for them in bars around Hawai’i or eating sushi. That, or, trying to sneak more cats and dogs into her apartment.
