From: Memphis, Tenn.
Married to Rich for 22 years; three kids: Colin, Cameron and Courtney; PTSA Chair for our local high school.
I'd rather be:
Reading! Some people collect things; I collect information.
Watching my son play football, listening to my daughter sing, spending time with family, Forrest Gump.
I'd most like to meet:
Nelson Mandela. It would be incredible to talk with a man who dedicated his entire life to making life better for others.
I most admire:
My mom. She raised five daughters alone after my father died. She taught me perseverance, positivity and the ability to bounce back. I use all of these in my business.
Before May Kay:
I was an account executive for a Fortune 500 company. I was trying to climb the corporate ladder and raise a family at the same time. I had no balance.
I found out about Mary Kay:
On a TV news program. I was impressed. When the time came that I needed to stay home with my kids, Mary Kay gave me the opportunity to do that.
"I was impressed."
Independent Beauty Consultant tip:
Look for a woman's skin care and cosmetic need and fill it. Wow your customers with exceptional service.
Why does Mary Kay rock?
I get to sell a quality product and represent a company with a great reputation. I also get to build lifelong relationships with my customers whom I help look and feel great every day.
"Customer Service Rules"
I learned how to sell:
By listening to CDs from the top Independent Sales Directors. It fits into my crazy schedule.
When I started, I had a two-month-old, a two-year-old and a demanding full-time job. I had to learn balance.
Expecting the positive. I work with the belief that when I sow seeds on fertile ground, I will reap a harvest.
