Meet Our 2015 Team Smiley!

Summer is here, and the fun is just beginning for our newest interns: Team Smiley! This enthusiastic crew is about to start their summer-long journey across the tri-state area, where they’ll be visiting fundraisers, festivals, races, and other community events from now through the fall.

Where Team Smiley goes, fun follows. Click here to see when they’ll be visiting your neighborhood, then stop by with the family to meet Smiley and enjoy a free Smiley Cookie – or even decorate one yourself!

All summer long, you’ll be able to read about Team Smiley’s adventures here on our blog. And, if you happen to cross paths with them at an event, be sure to stop by and say hello!  You can even check our Photo Gallery to find your photo!

So, you probably want to know a little more about these fresh new faces. Luckily, we’ve got the scoop. Read on!

Team Smiley 2015: (Left to Right) Emily, Natalie, Veronica, Elizabeth, and Kendall

Hi, everybody! My name is Emily and I’m a junior at Wake Forest University, where I’m majoring in Communications and minoring in Entrepreneurship and Social Enterprise. When I’m not busy creating smiles on Team Smiley, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, playing and watching sports, and traveling. In the fall, I am looking forward to studying abroad in Florence and introducing my new Italian friends to the Smiley Cookie! I just wish they could experience The Park After Dark and taste my favorite late night snack – Grilled Stickies!  This summer, I am looking forward to cheering on the Pirates and arriving at PNC Park in style with the Cookie Cruiser! My favorite cookie of all time is the traditional Smiley Cookie. It’s truly an iconic Pittsburgh staple – so much so that my family is giving out Smiley Cookies to all out of town guests at my sisters wedding this summer! 

Why hello, everyone! My name is Natalie and I am a junior with a Communication major and a Theatre minor at Denison University. I love going on adventures and can’t wait to travel around with Team Smiley! When I’m not cruising through town with my pal Smiley, I love to sing, hang out with family and friends, watch Netflix, and have dance parties. I’d have to say, my favorite Eat’n Park menu item is the Buffalo Chicken Wrap and my favorite Smiley Cookie shape is the shamrock! I’m looking forward to working with a wonderful team to help spread smiles and joy this summer all over town!

Hi, Smiley friends! My name is Veronica and I am currently a student at Robert Morris University studying Hospitality and Tourism Management. I love hanging out with my friends and family, shopping, going on adventures, and making people laugh! I love food and my favorite Eat'n Park meal is the Pittsburgh Turkey Sandwich, yum-o! Finish it off with my favorite Bucco themed smiley cookie and I'm a happy camper! You might be surprised to learn that I don't know how to ride a bike, but I'm hoping my new friend Smiley can help teach me! I super excited to travel this summer with my fellow Team Smiley friends and of course the very special cookie himself, Smiley!

Hi there, everyone! My name is Elizabeth and I am a senior Strategic Communications and Political Science major at Ohio University.  When I'm not hanging out with Team Smiley, you can find me spending time with my friends and family, writing, enjoying the sun, or watching my latest, favorite television series on Netflix. Something everyone may not know about me is that I studied abroad in Paris last summer; it was the most amazing experience of my life and I can't wait to visit Europe again (hopefully) in the near future!  Although it is a difficult decision, my favorite Eat'n Park meal is the Buffalo Chicken Wrap followed by a classic round Smiley Cookie, of course! I can't wait for a fun, smile-filled summer spent making memories with Team Smiley and the wonderful people we meet along the way.

Hi everyone! My name is Kendall, and I am a junior at Penn State University. My major is Business Management with a focus in Human Resources. I love meeting and interacting with new people, so I am very excited to be a part of Team Smiley! Aside from hanging out with my new pal Smiley, I love spending time with family, playing tennis, going to Zumba classes, and lounging with my dog, Zoey. For the past 5 years, I have worked for Eat’n Park at the McKnight Road location. I am looking forward to seeing a different side of Eat’n Park with Team Smiley! My favorite Eat’n Park meal is definitely the Chicken Bruschetta with mashed potatoes and broccoli. Yum! My favorite Smiley Cookie shape is the original round Smiley with purple icing. I can’t wait to work with an awesome team this summer and spread smiles with our friend Smiley!
