How did you start your journey and begin with Maui Jim?
My emphasis in college was event planning and I started in hospitality as an executive meeting manager. I then accepted a Director of Special Events position and began my journey in the marketing event planning space. I was then with a marketing agency and focused on digital marketing. My Maui Jim journey began in 2017 when I saw the posting and it grabbed my attention with it being the perfect culmination of my professional experiences.
What’s the most interesting place your travels have taken you?
I think the most interesting work related travel was to Alaska with a celebrity duo and we went full tourist mode. Checked out the local hang out spots, kayaking, learned about the rich culture, and got to experience Alaska during salmon season.
What’s the best thing about owning a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses?
The thing I love most about my Maui Jim’s are the way they enhance colors. There’s nothing better than being on a trail run and the greens of the grass, the purple of the violets jump out at you. It lets you focus on something besides being exhausted from your run. 🙂
What’s something people don’t know about Maui Jim that they should know? A lot of people aren’t aware of the amazing culture at Maui Jim. The people and passion make this company what it is. It starts at the top where they support a culture that allows jeans and flip flops, a gym open 24/7/365, and also truly empower the employees to make the customer happy. They live what they preach and it’s Aloha at Maui Jim.
What’s the best gift you’ve ever received (and why)?
I received a necklace from my sister-in-law after having my twin boys that is an infinity symbol with the boy’s initials. I haven’t taken it off since I got it.
If you were a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses, which style would you be (and why)?
I would have to go with the Kawika crystal frame with blue lens. They’re a great mix of classic style with modern fashion and flare.
