DRCC Employee Spotlight: Grace Barkley!

DRCC Employee Spotlight: Grace Barkley!

Everyone, meet Grace!

Grace has been helping out at Dirt Road Candle Co. since the summer of 2021. 

She’s a busy college student, so she’s not here full-time, but we simply adore her and always look forward to the days when she’s at the shop. 

Name: Grace Barkley

How long have you been with Dirt Road Candle Co.? 

This will be my third summer at DRCC! 

What does your typical day at work look like?

A typical day at DRCC always starts with shipping out customers' orders. After that, I usually whip up a caramel cold brew coffee and then get started on the main task of the day. This could be anything from: 

  • labeling and wicking candles
  • making counter spray, hand soap, or air sprays in the kitchen
  • filling wall diffuser refills 
  • organizing the backroom
  • or whatever crazy idea Michelle has come up with!

I also help with social media, like creating TikTok videos or posting on Instagram.

Days at DRCC are unpredictable and flexible so it's always interesting to see what the day brings!

What is your favorite fragrance in the new spring collection?

My favorite scent from the spring collection would be Spring Cleaning! I love the citrus notes in it! I feel like it’s the perfect fragrance to welcome in spring after the cold winter.

In my free time, you can find me …

Hanging out with my dogs, spending time with my family, and organizing everything in my life!

Grace is a treasure in the DRCC family, and I’m so happy I got to share her with you today.

This one is always a crowd favorite, too! Maybe because everyone has the spring organizing and cleaning bug right about now? I know I do!
