1. What was your very first job?
I started lifeguarding when I was 15 and did it for seven years. I loved that job!
2. How/when did you get involved in the tanning industry?
I had graduated from college and was without a job when I saw an ad in the paper for a customer service rep at Four Seasons. After I interviewed for that position, management decided I would be best at telemarketing phone sales. That was 20 years ago, and I have transitioned from telemarketing to inside sales and corporate sales.
3. Would you rather cook dinner or order in?
That’s an easy one: cook! I have always loved to cook and now that my two daughters (Dailey and Peyton) are older, they like to be in the kitchen just as much as I do. We like to Google different recipes and try new dishes. On the weekends, we eat out because that gives me a break.
4. Who is your hero?
My husband always says, “You are just like your mother.” Well, I take that as a compliment! My mother is my hero and she is a great role model to me and my daughters. Mom lives nearby in the same town, and she helps me out tremendously with the girls and everything in between – she is always there when we need her. She is a very hard worker, and I hope to pass all her good qualities down to my girls.
5. Do you hit the snooze button or get up immediately?
I hit the snooze button at least twice each morning, so I know to set my alarm about 10-20 minutes early.
6. Three words that describe me best are?
I would say reliable, determined and outgoing.
7. What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better?
When my family says, “I love you” as we are heading out the door each morning.
