Anita joined our Fulfillment team in 2016. She hails from nearby Glen Allen, where she lives with her husband and blue-eyed Siberian Husky, Bandit. Anita is proud grandmother to four young grandkids, with whom she loves spending time. When she’s not busy being an awesome grandma, Anita can be found camping, gardening, or doing puzzles. In the fall she enjoys watching the Dallas Cowboys. Anita has a huge heart and she admits that her motto in life is 'If I have it, it’s yours.' That sense of caring comes in handy for Anita when she is pulling and packing every order she handles here with a ridiculous amount of care.

An avid hockey follower and Philadelphia Flyers diehard, Brandon is our resident Broad Street Bully. His fandom spreads across North America, with the San Francisco 49ers and Toronto Blue Jays also earning his support. A Richmond native, Brandon is married and has a stepdaughter.

An avid traveler and a fan of the mountains, he's always on the hunt for a good porch with a great view. He hopes his passion for traveling will take him abroad again so he'll be able to cross 'motorcycling through Europe' off his bucket list. Christian also enjoys the beer and food scene around Richmond when he’s not looking to travel. He and his wife Tori have two young daughters and have settled down here in Richmond.

Cindy

Cindy

Cindy joined Goulet Pens as an Order Processor in 2015. A green thumb with classic tastes, the only place Cindy would rather be than mulching and pruning in her back yard is curled up on the couch watching some classic B&W cinema. She’s got a soft spot for movies such as 'Come Back Little Sheeba' and 'It’s a Wonderful Life' — and any films starring Jimmy Stewart. She has two grown children, two grandchildren, a dog, and a closet full of jigsaw puzzles. Cindy can put together a 1,000-piece puzzle faster than Bernanke Black ink dries on a Rhodia DotPad.

He is an avid wildlife photographer in his spare time. He loves twisting, turning, and trailblazing to find that perfect shot! His favorite spot is the Boundary Water area of Minnesota, a place so remote and unfettered by humans that the wildlife teems in abundance. Joe also enjoys canoeing, horseback riding, and rock climbing, so it’s no surprise that the outdoors are a passion of his.

A native of Harrisonburg, Virginia with a degree in Theology, he enjoys spending his free time reading a new philosophy or theology book, scouring the internet for rare Noodler’s ink, and taking care of his many plants. His love of rare ink has lead him to look in some of the most obscure places on the internet, trying to find anyone with a bottle they are willing to part with. His boisterous laugh can be heard throughout GPC headquarters, no matter where he is.
