How long have you been on the Iorio’s Team and what keeps you coming back?

Iorio’s is my FAMILY! I was a fresh, young newbie in August of 2014, so it’s been roughly a year and a half. There are many reasons why I’m still here: I love our leadership, I love that Iorio’s is a student-run business, and every person who works here is awesome. It really does feel like a second family to me; whenever I don’t want to go home or have a free moment, I automatically head to Iorio’s even when I’m not working.

When you’re not scooping gelato or brewing espresso, what can we find you doing?

Probably writing fan fiction or playing video games. My most recent favorite was Undertale or Transistor (haven’t finished that one yet though). Other hobbies include: cleaning, playing the piano, kicking a soccer ball around the squash courts in CCRB.

What’s one thing about you that customers would be surprised to know?

One time, when I lived in West Quad, I ran into Trey Burke and Mitch McGary while I was holding two full tubs of frosting. Bonus second Surprise Fact: I used to be able to fold my ears inside themselves, because I’m an alien. Now I have too many piercings to do that.

If you could create one dream gelato flavor, what would it be?

Ooooh, someone once suggested “Coconut Cream Pie” and that would be my ABSOLUTE! dream.
