My Beettan Story:
Where are you from? Where do you live now? I am originally from a town in East Tennessee called Johnson City. I moved to Memphis, TN for a bit and joined the Navy. While I was in the Navy (8 years) I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to many places around the world and lived in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia and the Chicago area. Once I got out of the Navy, my husband and I moved to Tennessee. We now live in East Nashville – it’s a super cool, diverse, and eclectic part of town, just about 10 minutes from downtown. We love it here!
- What’s the most helpful piece of advice you’ve received: I used to constantly be worried about what others thought of me and always put pleasing people ahead of my own happiness and joy. Someone once told me that what others think of me, is none of my business and it was such a game changer. Hearing that totally changed my mentality and perspective of how I approach life. I aim to do what makes me happy and in the process, always strive to be kind, thoughtful, and empathetic.
- What’s the best part of your job: I love helping people. I work as a Technical Recruiter for an amazing company at my day job and get to help people look and feel their best through tanning with BeetTan products, another amazing company. It truly is the best of both worlds – I feel so lucky and blessed!
- Who would you most like to switch places with for a day? Dolly Parton. I am not the most creative person and I’m definitely not musically inclined in the slightest. She is such a creative genius and has definitely paved her own path, even through so much adversity. I would love to get a sense of what the day-to-day is like for her.
