Back in 2011, Shana was one of our very first ever interns helping out team content—and we’ve been patiently waiting for her to graduate ever since. As soon as she got her diploma this past May, we snatched her up and she’s now officially part of the Birchbox team!
Shana Honig, Campaign Strategy Associate
Hometown: South Jersey
Describe your work: I work with the Beauty Partnerships team to ensure that we’re executing well-planned campaigns for our many amazing brands.
Unofficial role: Hand model. (I’m embarrassed to admit it, but it was a teenage dreams to do this professionally—I even looked into agents.) I love testing out different types of nail art and funky polishes.
Fun fact: I’m a certified scuba diver.
Beauty/Grooming confession: I can’t remember the last time I skipped a day of showering or took a shower that was less than 15 minutes long.
Currently loving: LAQA & Co. Nail Polish, I love the sleek design of these bottles. They slip right into my purse and are easy to spot among the many polishes in my cluttered collection.
Worth the splurge: Davines Oi/Oil Absolute Beautifying Potion keeps my hair supershiny and makes it much easier to comb through when wet.

Meet Brad, our sartorially savvy Vice President of Birchbox Man. Before joining the team, he had a varied career in tech and worked at places such as Accenture, Yahoo!, Olivia, mPowered Solutions, and Lookbooks Media. To match his dapper appearance, the man also has quite a sense of humor. So happy to have you with us, Brad!
Brad Lande, VP of Birchbox Man
Hometown: I grew up in Portland, Oregon but spent most of my recent life in San Francisco with intermissions in London, Florence, and Australia.
Unofficial role: Therapeutic Cocktail Specialist and Good Karma Master. I’m especially passionate about finding ways Birchbox can give back to the world through socially conscious initiatives.
Fun Fact: I traded in my cowboy boots for Lanvin sneakers. I grew up riding horses and was a highly competitive National Cutting Horse Champion. Don’t know what cutting horses do? Of course you don’t. Here’s a helpful video.
Beauty/Grooming confession: I think I was twelve or thirteen years old when I got my first subscription to GQ.
Currently loving: It’s top Secret. (Hint: Keep an eye on the Men’s store in the coming months for new brands on my radar). Also, everything on my personal Tumblr.
Worth the splurge: Cocktail tumblers. Tequilla on the rocks with a squeeze of fresh grapefruit, not included.
Best beauty/grooming trick: Self discovery. Knowing who you are is ultimate beauty.

This North Carolina native joins our campaign strategy team after graduating with a dual-degree in journalism and communications from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (such a smartie!). We have a Birchbox crush on Kelsey since not only does she love makeup—she has great tips from her sister who’s a makeup artist—she’s also obsessed with cheesecake. Yum. Here’s to you, Kelsey!
Kelsey Rozier, Brand Campaign Strategy Associate
Hometown: Raleigh, NC
Unofficial role: Diet Coke Devotee
Fun fact: I won my 6th grade Boggle tournament. Challenge me to a game of Scramble with Friends to see my skills for yourself.
Coming from a paralegal background at Weil, Gotshal, & Manges, this native Jersey girl is absolutely thrilled to join our world of nail polish and hairspray. Not only are her makeup and jewelry wardrobes to die for, but her obsession with chocolate-covered gummy bears ensures us that she’s a perfect fit for the Birchbox team. We’re so excited to be working with you, Dana!
Dana Aidekman, Merchandising & Marketing Associate
Hometown: Madison, NJ
Describe your work: I get to spend each day discovering amazing brands to share with our subscribers!
Some days, it feels like Birchbox runs on coffee (Stumptown, obvi) and Aussie power. Our crazy brilliant CTO, Liz, hails from Oz, as does Dave, our new-ish Senior Technical Product Manager. Between his hardcore running abilities (he’s a seasoned ultra marathoner) and endless patience with less-techy Birchbox staffers, he’s a total gem. We’d say that Team Content is Dave’s biggest fan, but we know we have serious competition from the rest of the company.
Dave Morrison, Senior Technical Product Manager
Hometown: Sydney, Australia
Unofficial role: Google Analytics Guru
Fun fact: I’m partial to a jog and recently completed my first ultramarathon—100km (62.13 miles for the Americans in the audience) through the National Parks of Sydney.
Beauty confession: From time to time, I’ll use my girlfriend’s hairdryer.
Currently loving: Jack Black Double Duty Face Moisturizer (thanks Birchbox Man!).
Worth the splurge: For swimmers, Kiehl’s All-Sport Swimmers Cleansing Rinse for Hair and Body. Nothing works better to nix that chlorine fragrance.
What beauty product most baffles you? Not a product, but threading! What’s wrong with good ol’ wax!?

We’re on an intro kick! Now, we’d love to introduce you to the lovely Stacy, who comes to us from American Express, Nielsen, and, most recently, Zagat Survey, where she worked on subscriber acquisition online. We managed to woo her to Birchbox in December — yay! Extra fun-facts you should know about Stacy: 1. She has amazing, glowing skin. We’re still trying to figure out her secret. 2. She also has a beautiful daughter, Alexis, who’s almost a year old and has stolen all of our hearts. Here’s a little bit more about her:
Stacy Graham, Director of Acquisition
Hometown: Kingston, Jamaica
Unofficial role: Pied Piper
Fun fact: I’ve traveled to six out of the seven continents and I plan to go to the seventh (Antarctica) very soon!
Beauty confession: I’ve used Oil of Olay as my facial moisturizer since I was 14 years old.
Currently loving: Bond No. 9 Union Square perfume.
Worth the splurge: A great deep tissue massage.
Best beauty trick? Exfoliating your skin everyday. It keeps you looking young!
We know a smart cookie when we see one, which is why we tried to hire Candice way back in the spring. Fast forward six months, and we finally managed to lure her away from her glossy magazine job. She’s the newest member of Team Content, and is bringing plenty of social media savvy and editorial wisdom. We’re delighted to have her!
Candice Chan, Associate Editor
Hometown: San Mateo, California
Unofficial title: Lifesaver
Fun fact: I love sharks! I’ve been fascinated by them since I was a kid, even though they kind of terrify me.
Beauty confession: I tried to bleach my hair in high school and came out with orange, orange tips. Never. Again.
Currently loving: Jouer’s Moisturizing lip gloss in Birchbox Pink. It’s such a fun pop of color and excellent for a night out.
Worth the splurge: Facials with someone who knows your skin! Maintenance check-ins make all the difference. I’ve been seeing the same facialist for years, and whenever I don’t do at least a seasonal session with her, my skin starts rebelling.
Best beauty trick? Take a fifteen minute cat-nap before you head out at night. It’ll brighten up your mood and skin.
Another Birchbox staffer favorite? Nuxe Multi-Use Dry Oil with Shimmer. A little goes a long way, and gives skin the prettiest sheen.
