Job Title: Website Content Stylist
What is your Cents of Style story? How did you start working here, how long have you worked here?
I started working at Cents of Style in February of 2013. I had been exclusively at home with my little girl for the first year of her life. And though I loved being a stay-at-home mom, I was struggling to stay myself. I wanted to be contributing to something larger than myself and my family. It was around that time that Courtney advertised that her company (which was MUCH smaller at the time) had an opening for an at-home job. So I applied!
Tell me what you like about working at Cents of Style?
I love that I get to still be home with my kids! I recognize daily how lucky I am to have found a job that allows me to contribute financially to my family but also to be a stay-at-home job for my kids. I like that I'm constantly learning new things and growing.
What is your favorite Cents of Style VALUE?
What does that VALUE mean to you?
I have been working really hard on this value this year. In the past I have always depended on others to validate me and to give me my confidence. But I am getting to the point where I gain validation and confidence from myself. It requires a lot more self awareness and honesty but it leads you to a place where you can exude happiness and confidence to the world.
What would you say to someone you see wearing something from Cents of Style?
I would tell them that they are now part of our mission. Because when you look good, you feel good. And then you can do good. And hopefully when you wear Cents of Style you look and feel good. So then you can go around empowering those around you.
What do you tell others about Cents of Style who have never heard about it?
I tell them that we are an online women's clothing and accessories company. But that we are more than that. Everything we do is done with our mission in mind. We want to empower women to lead bold and full lives. It sounds silly to say that our mission impacts all we do, but it's true. From the products we choose to the way we talk about them. From the way we package our products to ship out to the things we post on social media. It's about so much more than clothes.
What is your very favorite thing that you have ever gotten from Cents of Style?
I don't think I could pick just one thing! But one of my current favorites is my RADIATE tribe necklace. Because it's something I've been working on this year. It's so nice to have such a beautiful reminder of my personal mission. Plus it's great to layer with my other favorite jewelry.
