This month we are featuring Konnie Kitt, from the Customer Service Department! Konnie has been with GiftTree a little over a year, and we are so lucky that she found us! She was kind enough to take some time out of her busy day to answer our important questions:
What’s your favorite thing about working for GiftTree?
First of all, I am part of a great company, what amazing people to work for and with!!! Secondly, I love helping people send gifts for the happiest of happy occasions and the saddest of sad occasions. It really is true that we sell feelings, not gifts. I also enjoy that my days are never the same. Variety is fabulous!
Describe your perfect day.
A perfect day would probably entail a long nap, a long bath, and all the junk food I can eat without calories. In the real world, however, probably doing anything with my hubby and kids because I know I am going to laugh, and laughing charges my batteries!
If you could only see black and white, and ONE color, which color would you choose to see?
Even though purple is probably my favorite color, if I could only see one color, it would have to be red. I can’t imagine not seeing red.
Would you rather spend a weekend at the beach or in the mountains?
Hard choice! I really dislike being cold so I would probably say beach, but I also love to ski and love the sights and smells of the mountains. Hmm, a bit wishy-washy on this one!
You are famous around here for your baking skills. Any day you leave your tasty treats up front for us = a GREAT day. Any tips for wanna be bakers out there?
Baking is my thing, in case anyone hasn’t noticed. I guess because I love it so much, I can’t really make other bakers successful, but I will share a few of the things that I think make me a little unique: I never use butter, I only like Mexican vanilla, and I under-bake everything. I am being slightly vague because I don’t want to be replaced by someone who gets better than me! Bake for people you care about, it makes a difference. (And I do take suggestions so if there is anything anyone would like me to make or re-make, I am always willing).
Why we love Konnie…
Konnie is an asset to our department not only because of her mad baking skills (we literally fight over her cookies). She is always willing to help out wherever she is needed! She places floral orders, takes sales and customer service calls and handles tracking and vendor issues. She is also a customer loyalty rockstar. Konnie is someone we count on for so many things, and her sunny smile always gives us a lift!
