Meet the Team!

Tiffany Ju
Founder / Designer

Part of the Chunks team since: 
The beginning! Early 2019.

Whats your favorite part about that Chunks life? 
I LOVE getting in samples!!! It's like, this thing I've designed finally comes to life and knowing that I'll be able to share it with all of you soon!

If you were a Chunk, what would you be? 
A Jester Mini Claw. Duality is a huge theme in my life. Also they're really practical and the right amount of accent color for me.

What cities have you lived in?
Born in NoVa (Northern Virginia), went to school in NYC (Parsons), did a year abroad in Paris, moved to LA (wasn't a fan and left after a year), lived in Atlanta for a few (still my favorite home city!) and finally landed in Seattle (and not leaving anytime soon).

Favorite celebrity or internet personality? 
Lil Nas X, hands down.

What are you up to outside of Chunks? 
Hanging with my family, taking lots of walks! On the weekends, you'll usually find me at a pole class, hanging with friends or grocery shopping, tbh.



Kim Caldeo
Customer Service / Project Manager

Part of the Chunks Team since:
October 2020

Whats your favorite part about that Chunks life? 
Interacting with customers! Chunks truly has THE best customers. And lately, I’ve been given the chance to look into production. Seeing how it all just starts from a drawing and then gets made into actual product is just so interesting to me.

If you were a Chunk, what would you be? 
I’m probably a Jumbo Claw. A recent realization is that I am actually really strong and that I can handle A LOT without stressing myself out too much.

Favorite celebrity or internet personality?
Bretman Rock

What are you up to outside of Chunks? 
Catching up on K-Dramas, LOL. I’ve recently gotten my 6 yr old to watch Studio Ghibli films with me. Now she’s obsessed with My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away and Howl’s Moving Castle, so those are on repeat during the weekends.



Jill Cross
Wholesale Manager

Part of the Chunks Team since:
January 2021

Whats your favorite part about that Chunks life? 
Our team is very small, so I love having the ability to communicate directly with the entire team if I need to! Working so closely with Tiffany, and being in the know about important info across multiple departments isn’t something I’ve never really experienced in any other job. It really goes a long way towards building good relationships and cutting down on miscommunication!

If you were a Chunk, what would you be? 
I think I’m a lot like the Beige + Ivory Cecile Clip, understated but still fun. Trendy but classic.

What are you up to outside of Chunks? 
My favorite thing to do after work is relax! That normally involves a bubble bath and some trash reality TV. The essentials. And taking on small personal projects like trying out a new recipe or curating the perfect playlist!


Samira Youssef
Shipping Specialist

Part of the Chunks Team since:
March 2021

Whats your favorite part about that Chunks life? 
I’m still relatively new here, so I’ve been experiencing taking on new ownership of bigger roles and responsibilities. It feels great to have way more of a say as to how things should run and to be able to freely express my opinions and know they are listened to and accounted for.

If you were a Chunk, what would you be? 

Omg I would have to say the jester mini claws, they are just too adorbs! I use mini claws so much in my daily life to clip back all my crazy hair when it’s getting in my face. I love how they have two different sides to them. I feel like I definitely resonate with that because I have both an introverted and extroverted part of me!


What are you up to outside of Chunks? 
I love hanging out my cat and going on walks at the perfect time to see the sunset. A recent guilty pleasure I’ve been dabbling more into is playing video games with my boyfriend until the late hours of night.

Who is your favorite comedian? 
Nathan Fielder

Any new quarantine hobbies? 
I have been learning how to play ukulele and bass since the pandemic began. It’s been a blast making sounds, but learning more music theory is something I’ve been trying to intentionally work on.


Demi Valasakos
Graphic Design Intern

Part of the Chunks Team since: March 2021

What do you do at Chunks?
I get to help out with the branding, packaging, pretty much anything graphic i’ve probably had a hand in! 

If you were a Chunk, what would you be? 
id definitely be the jelly claw bc i’m a very dependable person and this claw is my go-to i can alway count on! 

What are you up to outside of Chunks? 
When i’m not working you can find me making playlists, watching movies, or drawing/picking up a new medium!

Most proud of...
Finishing up my portfolio and am getting ready to graduate from college!

Who is your favorite internet personality? 
Currently obsessed with the affirmations page on Instagram.
