Christine Murray isn’t afraid to ask questions.
“One of my life mantras is, ‘the worst they can say is ‘no’,” she said. Her comment came on the heels of her return from Uganda in October 2017, after spending a week in the field with members of the Vitamin Angels team and representatives from The Vitamin Shoppe–a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with room for only five Vitamin Shoppe travelers. So when the trip was announced, “I raised my hand and said I would be eager to go,” she said.
As The Vitamin Shoppe’s Brand & Communications Manager for the past year and a half, Christine’s been heavily involved with promoting the decade-long partnership between The Vitamin Shoppe and Vitamin Angels. Her hope was “to see a little bit more into the inner workings of this partnership” by traveling to Uganda, she recalled.
‘A little bit’ proved to be a big understatement.
