Sean Bakken has recently joined the staff of Habitat ReStore East as the Warehouse Manager, working with volunteers and keeping the flow of materials moving.
Sean and his family reside on Madison’s east side and share their home with a flock of chickens, three cats, a bunch of fish, a rabbit, a snake and bearded lizard named “Chief.”
With a background in the trades and as a metal artist, Sean is well suited to his job here at the ReStore! In his spare time, Sean creates sculptures with found materials (several pieces are on display at the store), and builds and creates whatever suits his fancy (or someone else’s).
“I am really enjoying being a part of Habitat and especially the Habitat ReStore. Now instead of shopping at the store three days a week, I get paid to looks things over. I like getting to know our customers. I especially like the volunteers. They are a hard working bunch and make my job much easier!”
Rumor has it that the volunteers really like working with Sean too. He always has a smile on his face and is ready to lend a hand!
