Insider's spotlight

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

In 2.5 years, I’ve been fortunate to experience our brand in 3 different cities. After 2 years in Memphis & Nashville as a Community Relations & Events Manager, I moved to Austin to take on a new role of Talent Acquisition Specialist. I’m thankful for a company that is committed to internal growth and sees development potential in every employee.

All of them! I just finished a new warehouse management system implementation and we have a roadmap full of system investments slated for 2018, all of which are critical to fuel our continued success! I love that I get exposure to ALL systems at Kendra Scott, including ERP, POS, WMS, & E-comm- experience I'd be hard pressed to gain anywhere else!
