I honestly just stumbled into it. One of my customers at my former job told me he had a position he thought would be great for me. I applied for the job and the rest is history. I honestly can’t see myself leaving this industry – this is my fourth year with JK!
The real question is what would I NOT sing? I can belt some Ella, Shania Twain or Jay-Z. I honestly don’t need a karaoke night either, I could sing for you on the spot – but don’t everyone line up at once at our event in June just to hear me sing. However, I might take requests from my favorite customers. I won’t promise I am good but I am definitely entertaining.
Well, my husband is a baseball coach so I think I am required to say baseball. I’ve been a coach’s wife for six years and I will tell you that my favorite part about the game is watching him doing what he loves and watching my kids play on the field after a big win. But not many things beat a fall Saturday afternoon football game in Fayetteville, AR. My heart is with my alma mater – GO, HOGS!
An actual quote from a friend: “The funniest, smartest, prettiest person I have ever met on this Earth.” (Does it count if I asked my four-year-old daughter this question? According to her, I’m the coolest mom EVER.)
When you are talking face-to-face with someone and they start getting on their phone. Being present is so hard to do with all our social media and cell phones. We have a little rule in our family: anytime we go out to dinner, we leave our phones in the car. Every once in a while, I get a wild hair and delete all my social media, ha! It’s all about finding a balance.
My husband and I are building our dream home and although it is just about the most stressful thing I can imagine, I feel so blessed to be able to do that right now. Who knew that choosing a backsplash for the kitchen would turn into a three-day argument with my husband? (Just kidding … a little.) All jokes aside, I am excited for my kids to grow up in the country just like I did. I see many goats and barn cats in our future!
I have been at JK for nearly four years and I actually still have some of my first customers. It went from “What can I help you with?” to “How was your baby shower?” or “How was your son’s graduation?” I speak with some of my salon customers almost weekly when ordering lotion, so it gives me the opportunity to form some amazing friendships. Can’t wait to see everyone next month in Orlando at Experience JK!
