The Helpful Human
Gisell Paula

What do you really do at work?

I keep all the things rolling by managing Boss Lady’s calendar, making poorly-timed jokes, and reminding everyone of the bright side of life.

What was your favorite chore growing up?

Walking our sweet family dog, a yorkie mix named Manggie (pronounced Man-gee). Gone, but never forgotten.

Who are your animals, children, significant other, or imaginary friend?

My world consists of my niece, nephew, and my sweet cat, Molly. My domestic life is filled by my partner in crime, Wally, who is stuck with me.

What's your superpower?

I have some pretty fantastic tenacity. If I had a motto, it would best described by a very profound meme: “You’re allowed 5 emotional minutes in the day, then you gotta be gangsta.”

What inspires you?

People inspire me in every way possible. Everyone has so much to teach! The coolest part of existing is opening yourself up to all types of people and learning about the human condition.

Her Story

As Sisarina’s Helpful Human, Gisell wears many helpful hats and helps many help-needing people. When she’s not assisting the Boss Lady, Gisell facilitates the brand magic by juggling scheduling, coffee making, and romantic walks with the pups. She is the captain Sisarina’s cheerleading squad, keeps the Crew grounded in reality (for the most part) and keeps spirits high by shouting “Woo!” with arms raised from time to time. She also has a serious affinity for to-do lists and getting things done.

In a previous life, Gisell worked in the culinary arena as a Pastry Chef, where she baked up some sweet skills in organization, multi-tasking, and working under pressure. (She also makes a mean strawberry shortcake.) Gisell has a degree from Johnson & Wales University in Baking & Pastry Arts and Business Management. She’s temporarily putting down her oven mitts to dive headfirst into the world of branding.

An experienced traveler and adventurer at heart, Gisell never resists taking an animal home or impromptu beach trips with her new Boss Lady and aspires to be a citizen of the universe. A native of Jersey City, New Jersey, she’s happiest when she’s busy and always strives to make an impact as a Helpful Human (both inside the office and out).
