You would think working at Tillamook gives us working moms a leg up in the Tillamama movement: We would never run out of hugs or Tillamook products. (OK – who are we kidding, we would never run out of Tillamook on purpose, but we are human, and we are busy moms!).
At home, our Dairy Products Quality Manager, Jill Allen, keeps up with three very busy kids. Her oldest, Marshall, is an active eight year old, and I wondered what he thinks about what his mom does at work (and home):
What does your mom do for a job?
She tastes the cheese.
What does your mom do at home?
Takes me swimming and cleans.
What makes your mom special?
She takes me swimming and bike riding and we love her.
What is your favorite thing that your mom makes with Tillamook cheese?
Melted cheese sandwich and cheese and crackers.
What is your favorite Tillamook product?
Grandmas Cake Batter Ice Cream.
Can you tell Marshall likes to swim? He is a member of the Tillamook Sharks swim team.
And he’s right, his mom does taste the cheese. She actually tastes Tillamook Cheese, Ice Cream, Sour Cream, Cutter and Yogurt and manages the technical staff of other “cheese tasters” through our sensory program, ensuring that all of our products meet the high Tillamook quality standards.
Thanks Marshall for telling us about your Tillamama!
