Employee Spotlight


Name: Denise Hinkley

Position: Domestic Sales Assistant

Favorite Apple: Honeycrisp – I love the crispness of this apple. The flavor is sweet, but not too sweet like a Fuji. The apple tends to be juicy and the skin is generally light, unlike a Red Delicious. I do also love a Granny Smith!  The tartness is refreshing on a hot summer day!

Favorite Cherry: Lapin – This cherry tends to be firm, sweet and juicy.  

Favorite part of working at Chelan Fresh: I really enjoy being around my co-workers every day. I love a teamwork atmosphere and the group of people I work with all have that attitude. It's almost as if we are family. I really love interacting with our customers too. I've built some great relationships that have extended outside of work. Being around and being involved with honest, caring, positive and fun people is key for my mental health as well as my personal productivity. I want to work hard while having fun doing it!  

Favorite thing to do outside of work: I love being outdoors, so anything I can do outdoors is my favorite way to spend my time out of work. I love hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, riding quads and even yard work!
