Nordstrom is opening its first Canadian location at Chinook Centre on September 19. We’ve asked the store’s manager, Shelia Wooldridge to complete a few sentences so that we can get to know her a little better.

I grew up in…

Riverside, a small town in Iowa, south of Iowa City. Fun fact about the town of Riverside: it’s the future birthplace of Captain Kirk for the Trekkies out there.

My childhood ambition was…

to be a psychologist.

My first job was…

babysitting.

My current job is…

my best one yet – Store Manager, Nordstrom Calgary!

I like to vacation…

whenever I can, especially on Maui.

My culinary specialty is…

provided by my husband.

Netflix thinks I am…

an action junkie.

The last three things I purchased were…

1. Tom Ford lipstick.

2. Cowboy boots.

3. A T-shirt that says “Be Optimistic.”

The piece of clothing I wear the most is…

black pants. I have about 10 different styles in my closet. When I tell my stylist that I need a new pair of black pants he says, “No you don’t!” But he always manages to find me another pair.

The most ridiculous piece of clothing I own is…

a burgundy velvet jumper – think Tracy Partridge, and yes, it was a costume for a skit.

My guilty fashion pleasure is…

leather, at the moment. I can’t seem to get enough.

The most important piece of fashion advice I’ve ever received was…

if it doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.

I’d love to meet…

the Dalai Lama.

At least once in their life, every person should try…

a crawfish boil.

My fondest Calgary memory is …

yet to come…

No Calgary day is complete without…

sunshine.

If you get the feeling you’d like to spend more time with Shelia Wooldridge, you’re in luck. Starting on Friday, June 6, Nordstrom will begin hiring more than 400 sales and support roles for the Chinook Centre location. Go to careers.nordstrom.com for more information.
