What do you love about your job?
One of the things I’m most passionate about is the work I do with search engines. I help people find SallyBeauty.com on sites like Google and Bing, and once they get to our site, I help them find the products they are looking for.
How do you spend your free time?
I’m somewhat of a creative person. Within the last year, I’ve taken up photography and become addicted to Instagram. I’m also addicted to Pinterest with its do it yourself ideas. I’ve made wreaths for my door, crafts for my son’s peewee football team, and several gardening projects. Remember that Japanese boxwood wreath with the big letter A on it last spring? Nailed it! Now I’m lining up projects for Halloween and Christmas.
Give us a fun fact about yourself.
When I was eight, I didn’t want to share a suitcase with my little sister for a trip to Nana’s house. So I made my own suitcase with two boxes, paper clips, and rubber bands. Maybe I’m related to MacGuyver!
What is your favorite product available at Sally Beauty?
I love the Hot Shot Tools Transparent Pink Hair Dryer! I’m rough on dryers and I go through one a year. I use it every day (plus I’m clumsy and I drop it a lot). This dryer has lasted longer than any other, and it’s super cute!
