Cal Babiash

Office Gopher

I’m a junior at Centennial High School.  Identified as the Booshie office ‘Gopher’ and odd jobs guy.  I spend most my days playing soccer all over the country and chasing sneakers and sweet clothing for my personal wardrobe.  I specialize in eating Chipotle, Jersey Mike’s and Noodles as my food categories and was trained in sales events size I was 9 years old.

Leah

Sales Guru

Sales GuruI'm from the other side of the river. No, not Minneapolis. I'm from the other side of the St. Croix River...aka 'Sconnie! I was born in Woodruff and grew up in Stevens Point. My blood bleeds green and gold...and potatoes, naturally. I now reside in St. Paul. I've done a few things, seen a few things, learned a few things between there and here and am ready to do more of all that with new life challenges. I'm one cat away from being a certified crazy cat lady. Animals and nature are my jam. First sport I ever participated in was figure skating. These days, you'll find me out on the field under Friday night lights - as an official. Looking forward to what the future holds at Booshie and beyond!

Crumpet

Office Dog

I’m the Booshie office dog.  I enjoy the days monitoring what all the humans are doing, sunning in my office window and making sure I don’t miss out on the daily dog bone from my human UPS driver.  I drink loads of water, go outside, nap (lots) and love a good butt scratch from any of my Booshie co-workers."
