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.

How does the company support your career growth?

Nine years ago, I took an Assistant Manager position at our West Village store. That position served as a stepping stone that has taken me beyond my wildest dreams. The relationships I have built in my time at Kendra Scott have helped shape me into the thriving young professional I am today.
