Rochelle Birnbaum – H&H Press Department
Meet Rochelle Birnbaum, a veteran employee of 23 years, who bridged film to digital with H&H!
The digital press area at H&H is responsible for some of our most popular products – including press books, press cards, calendars, Gallery Lay-flat press album pages, skinny and square mini’s, brochures, bookmarks, and much more! We are proud to have long-term employees, such as Rochelle, who because of experience and cross training, appreciate and understand our industry. It is rewarding to see team members enjoy and work together to assure our customers receive their orders right and on time!
Q: How long have you been with H&H?
A I started working at H&H in 1994. I started as a printer (small prints). After approximately 4 years, I worked on the Hamlin printer (print sizes from 10×20 to 20×30). Once H&H went digital, I have worked in small and large print assembly. I now work in the Digital Press Department as an assembler.
Q: What did you do before coming to H&H?
A Before H&H, I worked in the travel industry. For eight years, I lived in Arizona and worked for America West Airlines. With the airlines, we were all ‘cross trained’ in reservations, airport services, and in-flight services. I am also ‘crossed trained’ in other departments at H&H, and it definitely helps to know all the different areas of the business. I also feel that being organized is very important.
Q: What is it that you enjoy about your team here at H&H?
A I enjoy working with the team in our department. We all strive to provide the best product for the customer. We all work together to make sure that the work is completed every day.
Q: Tell me a little bit about your family.
A My husband, Bob, and I have been married for 31 years. We have a daughter and a son. Our daughter is happily married and has given us two beautiful grandchildren.
Q: What are some of your hobbies?
A I enjoy spending time with my family as much as possible, especially with my grandchildren (ages 3 years and 3 months). They are so much fun.
