What do you do here?

I am the website deal coordinator & affiliate manager.  I work with bloggers so they will post our weekly deals and exclusives and set up our Style Steals and Fashion Friday programs. 

What do you do in your daily life that is different than before you worked at Cents of Style?

I get to stretch my brain a little more.  My position is less defined, and more up to me in a lot of ways.  I get to make creative solutions so that we are putting our best foot forward with our affiliates and finding solutions that make everything beneficial to both of us.

Tell me what you like about working at Cents of Style?

The culture at Cents of Style is truly unique.  I came from a company that was more flexible than a lot of others, but it didn’t hold the true trust and flexibility that Cents of Style offers me.  I feel that I am trusted to get my job done, but not micromanaged on my time. I have the ability to spend more time with my family during the day, and I’m able to fully function in my position and get my job done.  I love the focus on helping us grow as individuals, not just employees, and the understanding that as employees grow personally, it helps the company.  There is a true team attitude - we don’t accomplish things individually, but we are stronger together.  I love that.

What is your favorite Cents of Style VALUE and what does it mean to you?

I love “Radiate” because it truly means to push your happiness and joy into the world….to be the good.  The world needs more of that.

How does Cents of Style help you lead a Bold & Full life?

Cents of Style helps encourage me to be strong, to learn about myself.  It gives me the opportunity to be able to learn and grow...while still being able to focus on my family as well.  It gives me the chance to be confident and live a vivid life that is full of everything that I want. There aren’t many companies that offer that..especially for women that wants to be able to be fully involved in the lives of their children, to be able to attend field trips and class parties, and the waterpark.  It’s hard to find a company that values my time with my family as much as I do, that understands that I can truly have both if afforded with the flexibility and trust to accomplish what is required in my career and what is important to my family.

Tell me how COS empowers you.

I believe that empower means to make someone more confident, and able to take full control of their life, to liberate, set free with a confidence and ability to accomplish their goals. Cents of Style gives me the opportunity to help provide for my family, while still being able to fully support and be there for my kids on a daily basis.  To me, that is empowering.  Cents of Style also has a distinct focus on personal growth.  Being able to focus on me and my individual growth in ways both personal and professional helps me to continually evaluate who I am, what I know about myself, and how it can impact my life and my family. Cents of Style encourages and empowers me to be able to take control of my future and accomplish my personal, family and professional goals.
