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!

Describe your work: I get to spend each day discovering amazing brands to share with our subscribers!
The members of the Birchbox Operations team (who you chat with by phone and email!) are some the friendliest, most upbeat staffers in the office. Operations Associate Madison is no exception to the rule. Not only can this Virginian sweetheart seriously rock a bright pink smile (see the picture below), she’s also earned some serious geek and pop-culture cred—Madison listens to the Game of Thrones books on her way to work. We’re so happy to have her!
Madison Amburn, Operations Associate
Hometown: Richmond, Virginia
Unofficial role: Candy and Snack Hoarder
Fun fact: I love plants, especially cactus. I have over 20 cacti plants in my house!
