Courtney McGeever has one of the best jobs in the world in our opinion. Although she’s based in New York, she handles Canadian media relations for LUSH Cosmetics, one of our favourite beauty brands across the globe. That means she gets to live in NYC, work with friendly Canadians, and smell like a million bucks every day of the year. Yes, we are insanely jealous. We caught up with Courtney to find out all about why she loves what is clearly our dream job, and how she spends her down time.
Give us a snippet about you. What should people know?
I’m originally from Cleveland, Ohio and I currently reside in New York City. I handle the Canadian media relations for LUSH Cosmetics and I absolutely love my job! I’ve been living in NYC and working in the PR industry for 7 years. The energy of this city is constantly inspiring me and I love exploring new neighborhoods and areas. I’m an avid runner and it’s a great way to check out NYC and other cities when I’m on the road.
Finish this sentence: I love LUSH because…
…beyond smelling fantastic every day, it’s a wonderful feeling coming to the office and knowing I work for a company who holds true to their ethics and beliefs throughout every aspect of the brand.
What are three things you simply cannot live without?
The love of my family and friends, iPhone, and a comfortable, yet stylish, pair of shoes.
What’s your favourite restaurant and why?
Rosemary’s in the West Village is my go to for fresh eats. There is a rooftop garden where they grow their own produce and they proudly serve homemade pasta. The small plates are phenomenal and it’s a meal you can really feel good about eating!
What’s your favourite drink/cocktail and where do you go to get it?
I love the bespoke cocktails at Amor y Amargo. A Manhattan is my drink, and I always go with “dealer’s choice” where the bartender selects bitters based on your likes and dislikes – they’re always spot on.
Let’s get social for a mo’. How can people stay up-to-date with all your city-trotting?
