Tell us about yourself.
Growing up I lived in three countries and must have played at least ten different sports. I love travelling and learning about different traditions and cultures. While I am not somewhere abroad, I enjoy creating art, working out, and spending time outdoors (just don’t ask me to go camping).
What is your personal motto?
“Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive”
Reminding myself that I am only given a limited number of years makes me see my life as something that is to be enjoyed and celebrated. No matter what might be going on in my life at the moment, I try to see the positive side and remind myself that in the end I will always be OK.
Tell us about your Jon Renau journey.
I joined the Jon Renau team in August of 2015 as a Social Media & Marketing Coordinator. During my three years here, I’ve learned a world about alternative hair, and had a ton of fun discovering my own favorite pieces. Being at Jon Renau has also taught me to be compassionate and helped me gain an understanding that “it is not just hair” for those who lose it.
What has been your most memorable moment at JR?
My most memorable moment at Jon Renau was receiving our 2017 Jon Renau Gets Real ladies here in our office. It was the first time in my life that I’ve found myself being a part of something so authentic and important for the hair loss community. Meeting these women and hearing their stories really made an impact on me.
What is your favorite wig or hairpiece?
I love all of the Jon Renau human hair toppers (and wear most of them, too), however, my latest obsession is Kim – our longest human hair wig. Diana [Jon Renau’s Education Manager] has colored it pastel pink for me and I think I’ve finally found my dream mermaid hair.
