Employee Spotlight: Say it with... Lori!
Our next Employee Spotlight is focusing on the other half of our fabulous store management team; Lori! We’ve asked her a little bit more about her Say it with Diamonds’ journey - her interesting fact is definitely a unique one…
Q: Can you tell us a little bit about your role at Say it with Diamonds?
I am one-half of the store's managers. Sharon and I like to split our roles as she is better at some things than me and vice versa! We work well as a team to keep everything running the best way it can.
Q: Can you describe yourself in three words?
This is hard. I would say, impatient, trustworthy, and honest. I'm a Sagittarius so basically every trait is me!
Q: What's the best thing about working for SIWD?
Probably, my team! It's so important to me that we all get along; it makes coming into work so much easier. Everyone is so lovely.
Q: Do you have a favourite SIWD piece?
Either a full diamond L initial (these are classic, but I've always loved them!) or a 2ct oval/round solitaire on a thin band (think everyone in the shop knows this, hint hint!) - this is my dream ring.
Q: Tell us an interesting fact about yourself.
Before starting at SIWD, I was a makeup artist for four years. I also HATE hugs. I recently watched an episode of the Kardashians, and this was the topic. I couldn't relate more. No one gets a hug apart from my little brother, nephew & my boyfriend.
Q: Have you got a favourite customer story?
I don't have a favourite, but when people buy sentimental gifts for a friend/loved one who has lost somebody close to them, it's always sad to hear their stories and makes you appreciate everyone around you.
Q: Do you have any advice for people who want to follow in your footsteps?
Always be happy & grateful for what you have and try not to get too stressed out over little things. Everything happens for a reason... Lori x
