MEET THE ISC FAMILY

Theresa

Theresa

#DesignDiva

 

In addition to being an awesome store manager and an outstanding graphic designer, Theresa D. also serves as the official ISC family healer. Seema said it best when she exclaimed one day, “Theresa, you just fix people!”

Theresa is a listener, a smiler, an altruist, a deeply affectionate mother, and a kind soul. To know her is deeply rejuvenating for the mind, body, and spirit. We are honored to have her on our team full-time in 2020. Theresa worked part-time at ISC from 2015-2018, took a break to pursue her other passions, and is now fully on board managing our team’s design, print, and beautification projects. Everyone agrees at Island Ship Center that we vote for #TeamTheresa!

Allyson

Allyson

#AmbitiousAllyson (AKA #AskJarvis)

 

Allyson is a true gift to our ISC family. She joined at the end of summer 2020 and was also given the dually daunting task of transforming into Fahim’s personal assistant, a job she did so well that her official hashtag has changed from #AmbitiousAllyson to #AskJarvis!

Keeping Fahim organized and on schedule for every meeting is no small feat, but Allyson does this while maintaining a full-time schedule as a sophomore at Daemen College! Her passion is helping others and her dream is to pursue a PhD in Physical Therapy so she can ultimately make an impact on the lives of others by servicing their physical ailments.

Her meticulous nature and attention to detail also enable Allyson to be an integral part of our ISC digital marketing team, in which she makes time to write blog posts, upload pics to Instagram, and coordinate a plethora of meetings between Fahim and his social media network.

Allyson is a former hockey, softball and basketball player who loves to spend time with friends and family and go to the gym. We even don’t mind that she’s a huge Detroit Red Wings fan. She loves working with our ISC family because, in her own words, “It truly does feel like my second family and I always look forward to going to work!”

Anthony

Anthony

#AskAmato

 

Anthony’s warm smile and affable demeanor greet all guests as they walk through our doors. His friendly charm and creative assistance linger even after our guests leave, allowing him to ameliorate all aspects of our business.

An outstanding soccer player who enjoys boxing just as much, Anthony is also responsible for most of the video content on our social media platforms. His ability to document happenings at ISC in real time and engage with team members allow our social media presence to be as authentic, relevant, and engaging as possible.

Although only a junior in high school and one of the more younger members of our ISC family (Anthony joined in January 2020), Anthony has quickly grasped the most challenging aspects of shipping, digital marketing, and mailbox services.

Brooke

Brooke

#BrookeBeautifies

 

Brooke loves spending quality time with her family and friends. She enjoys being outdoors, whether it’s playing sports or going on adventures. But, soccer is her passion! Something unique about her is her faith, which always gives her a positive and determined mindset.

Jackson

Jackson

#JoyousJackson

 

His name is Jackson Jones and he’s in the business of big, bright smiles. Jackson has been working at the Island Ship Center since 2019 and is currently leading our outside sales efforts! He’s a junior at Grand Island High School and plays on their football, basketball, and lacrosse teams. He’s also very involved in his school with leadership positions such as Class President and DECA officer!

Joe

Joe

#JediJoe

 

Joe loves Star Wars and seems like a “Jedi” in real life, so his #JediJoe hashtag really fits him! He’s a third degree black belt in karate, an avid runner, and a dedicated student. He’s always willing to help everyone on the team and makes a wonderful addition to our ISC family.

Full of collaboration, empathy, and grit, Joe leads the way with digital mailboxes, ecommerce fulfillment, and cross border logistics. He said it best when asked about his life’s goal: “I’m always searching for ways to expand my horizons and knowledge in the pursuit of helping those in my life and in the community!”

Jonny

Jonny

#JonnyBeGood

 

Everyone loves Jonny! Outside of working at the Island Ship Center, he goes to Grand Island High School. He’s a very active person and loves playing sports; soccer is one of his favorites and he plays for school and also runs indoor track. Another thing he likes to do is hang out with friends and family. He truly loves his family and, as he says, “my second family which is the Island Ship Center family, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”

Jordan

Jordan

#JovialJordan

 

Jordan has an innate ability to bring a smile to anyone’s face. She’s a sophomore at D’Youville College in the Exercise and Sports Science program, and plans to continue after to get her doctorate in Physical Therapy. She also plays soccer and lacrosse at D’Youville. She’s been working at the Island Ship Center for a little over a year now and feels that she’s found her second family!

Jordan’s smile radiates every room that she enters and her enthusiasm permeates everyone’s soul. She exudes a love of learning and as a result, in such a short amount of time, she has grasped most of the challenging aspects of ISC happenings.

Jordan’s retail prowess shines through with every guest interaction behind the counter, as she efficiently manages to convey a deep knowledge of shipping and printing, while maintaining composure, empathy and full collaboration. She loves coming to “work” and is always willing to lend a helping hand to every ISC family member that needs it. Fahim and Seema both credit Jordan for making ISC an even better place to work because of her presence!

Musa

Musa

#MindfulMusa

 

After spending a few years in Texas and in Europe, Musa recently moved back home to Western New York and joined our ISC family in October of 2020 as a full-time warehouse manager.

An avid athlete with a passion for restoring cars and motorcycles, Musa’s smile and gracious nature complement our team with effective skills in our warehouse and a diligent work ethic.

Contact him today at musa@islandshipcenter.com

Noor

Noor

#NiftyNoor

 

Noor is a self-proclaimed polyglot who loves to learn about different cultures. She recently moved from Dallas, Texas to Western New York. In the past couple of years, she has moved to a couple of different states and also went abroad for a while. She’s excited to start her new adventure in New York!

Trevor

Trevor

#TechieTrevor

 

Even though he’s the youngest member of our ISC family, Trevor towers over almost everyone else with his 6’ height and his basketball build. His smile lights up a room and his gentle demeanor keeps our guests extremely satisfied. Although Trevor spends most of his time in our warehouse, working on cross-border logistics projects, his eagerness to learn new things has encouraged him to try his hand at mastering our shipping software (he is a young “techie,” after all), so he can easily assist guests coming in the back to drop off their return packages.

When he’s at home, Trevor lives for basketball and loves Chef’s signature spaghetti parm. A true entrepreneur by nature, he also loves to buy and resell shoes during his free time. Until he ends up in the NBA someday, a true dream for him, we’ll keep him here at ISC, which in his own words, “Feels like my home away from home!”

Yusuf

Yusuf

#FulfillmentSpecialist

 

Yusuf is an essential part of our ISC family; not only is he Fahim and Seema’s 3rd child, he is the unofficial sibling to everyone in our family-style workplace. Even Jordan and Allyson agree that he’s so much fun to pick on, just like their real brothers at home.

Yusuf graduated from Grand Island High School in 2018, with an honors Regents Diploma, after playing 2 years of Varsity Soccer, and is currently pursuing his Business Administration degree at Medaille College as a junior.

Yusuf’s keen eye for finances and accounting, along with an inherent ability to listen to others allows him to impart wisdom to everyone at ISC, including his parents, who sometimes don’t realize that relevance means marketing to Yusuf’s demographic and not necessarily their own.

Yusuf stays calm in the face of adversity and has learned many valuable lessons throughout working in his family’s business from a young age. His collaborative style and resilient optimism shine through, especially when our team meetings get overly passionate, AKA heated!

Yusuf hopes to take over his parent’s business someday and increase exposure of ISC to a national (if not international) level.
