At Build-A-Bear Workshop, we know families are beary important! Debby and her daughter, Sarah, both work at World Bearquarters in St. Louis. Debby has been a bear for 12 years. When Sarah was younger, she came to work with her mom to help out. Sarah had lots of fun working with her mom and enjoyed the unique environment. Sarah joined the company as an associate nearly 8 years ago!
A lot has happened over the past 12 years! Debby now has 2 grandchildren, Sarah got married, and has a 5 year old! Now that Sarah’s married, she has a different last name. People are saying to Sarah and Debby, “I had no idea you were mother and daughter! That’s so cool!”
They both have only positive things to say about working at the same office. Although their jobs don’t overlap much, they enjoy being able to see each other most days and eat lunch together now and then. As an added bonus, they get to see a whole other side of each other by witnessing skills and abilities they wouldn’t have otherwise known about. For instance, Debby says she loves that she gets to see what a smart and capable daughter Sarah has become. She says Sarah makes everything she does look easy, including major events.
It doesn’t stop with Sarah and Debby. Sarah’s son, Austin, loves making bears at our stores, especially at our newly imagined store. And her dog, Cooper, has been coming to the office since he was just 10 weeks old.
