So what do you DO at Alight?
I am the office manager/administrative assistant! I make sure the office has everything it needs to run efficiently.
What did you do before you came to Alight?
I formerly worked for a hair care distribution company, and we had a showroom in south Kansas City, where I was the manager. We had two other locations — one in Dallas and one in Nashville — which I oversaw as well. It was a place for salons and stylists to come in and shop, and also see how product could be displayed.
What do you like to do when you aren’t at work?
My husband and I love to explore the outdoors. When we can, we like to go to Colorado — it’s one of our favorite places to visit! This past July, we went to Colorado for a few days, and I hiked my first mountain. It was 14,440 feet, and it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, but oh so liberating. We also like to explore the city as much as we can and check out new restaurants and bars.
People are always surprised to learn that you …
… are not the cook of the family. BUT I’m trying!
What’s your favorite snack?
I love snacks! Probably chips, salsa, and guac. Or pickles.
What are you a ride-or-die fan of?
If we’re talking about snacks, then it’s what I just said. 🙂
If we’re talking about anything else — my husband, my dogs and the movie “Bridesmaids.”
Who plays you in the movie about your life?
Probably Lily Collins. Or Emma Watson.
What movie have you NOT seen that 99 percent of the rest of the world has?
There are many, but I would say “Fight Club.”
