Our Team

Pat Shen

Founder, Curator

Pat is in constant pursuit of beauty, experience, and a good story. Alongside leading Sidebloom and Our Heiday, she loves being with her husband, two girls and pup, bookmarking the next restaurant, recipe, or adventure, adding another book to her bedside table, and gathering around the table at home.

Mary Smith

Shop Manager

A theatre kid at heart, Mary enjoys catching a play every once in a while, fawning over her two cats, and cooking in her kitchen. When she’s not singing along to Taylor Swift, you’ll catch her watching horror films, practicing her Spanish, or driving up to Deukmejian with her partner for a picnic and a hike. 

Carolyn Chuang

Sales Lead

For as long as she can remember, Carolyn has always loved stationery and sending snail mail to connect with friends and family. You can usually find her at a farmers market, dancing, trying new recipes, or going on mini-adventures with her husband and young daughter. A native Michigander, she now calls Burbank home.

Hannah Lim

Sales Associate

A lover of plants, coffee, baking, and children's books. In addition to Sidebloom and her day job as a higher education professional, she spends her free time learning German, doing yoga, exploring local cafes, and playing with her two (soon-to-be three!) nieces and nephews.

Anneliese Guerrero

Sales Associate

A true creative at heart, Annie loves trying a new, challenging baking recipe, crafting, or flipping the pages of a good book. When she's not at the shop, Annie is currently a college student pursuing fashion (so please don't mistake her for a child shopping when you're here!). She also enjoys sitting in nature and enjoying a good cup of coffee.
