My name is Harper Zimlich, and I’m the newest addition to the Bolt team! I am so excited to be working hands-on with such an amazing company, as well as working alongside Abby and Caleb.
Here’s a bit about me! I am a sophomore at UMKC, where I am studying Marketing with a minor in Art and Visual Communications. I was born and raised in Topeka, KS, moving to KC for college was a huge step for me, but I have loved every minute of it. In my free time I love to be in the kitchen, playing tennis, or watching movies with my roommates! I have a love for fashion and all things trendy, which I know working for Bolt will only fuel that fire!
I am most looking forward to experiencing first-hand what it is like to work for a small business. Entrepreneurship has always been an area of interest for me, so I am excited to learn more about the ins and outs of owning and operating a small business. Only being a sophomore, I feel that working for Bolt is going to give me experience that will prepare me for my professional career path following graduation.
One of the reasons I am so passionate about entrepreneurship is that I had a small business of my own in high school. I started a baking business called Harper’s Homemade, where I sold everything from sugar cookies to custom cakes. This was such a fun way for me to embrace my creativity, as well as gaining life-long skills. Through my business I was able to create so many connections and I felt like I learned something new every day. I feel that Bolt will be a great opportunity for me to experience working for a small business from a new perspective. I am so excited to learn, grow, and be a part of such an amazing business!
