Lauren is KA's Marketing Manager and FIRST official EMPLOYEE. She has been working with Kinsley Armelle since July 2017 and in addition to being KA's first employee, she was also KA's FIRST CUSTOMER. How amazing is that?! Lauren is originally from Alabama but has spent most of her life in Texas. She attended Texas State University where she earned her Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences - Interior Design. Lauren acted as one of KA's first Brand Ambassadors and continues to be an advocate for the Kinsley Armelle Brand.
Lauren really does wear a lot of 'hats' here at KA. When she is not jumping in to help with fulfilling orders; Lauren updates the KA website, photographs products and videos for social media and assists Crystal (KA Creative Director) in designing upcoming releases. Lauren helped design our best selling KLUB KA, the 2018-02 February Klub KA Stack and our 2017-12 December Klub KA Stack.
Lauren has played such a vital role at Kinsley Armelle and we are so excited for her to embrace her next adventure, motherhood! As of May 1st, Lauren will be leaving KA corporate to prepare for the arrival of her new daughter. We are going to miss seeing her everyday, however, she will continue to be an advocate for Kinsley Armelle and assist us in digital media when needed.
We asked Lauren some questions and here is what she had to say...
What Do You Love about the Kinsley Armelle Brand?
"I love the natural look of the stones KA chooses and how they mix them with high quality metal settings. The Druzy Bangles were my first purchase because they really caught my eye, they drew me to the KA Brand. I also love the variety of styles that Kinsley Armelle offers. The mix of large and small beads, bangles and Chip Collection bracelets make it so easy to create tons of different interesting stacks. I basically never wear the same stack twice, there are so many mix and match options and depending on the type of mood I am in, I can wear girly pieces or more rugged/tough pieces."
What do You LOVE about working with
the Kinsley Armelle Team?
"I love how easy going everyone is. We are the definition of a team - we come together every day to achieve customer satisfaction! Everyone is willing to pitch in and help even in areas that aren't their main focus. It is just the best atmosphere to work in when everyone supports each other."
What do you do outside of Kinsley Armelle?
"Outside of KA, I operate my Etsy shop selling mainly custom wood signs. When I’m not pregnant with a big old bump, I’m also a certified personal trainer that loves helping clients learn how to weight lift properly to increase strength and build definition. I love nothing more than traveling around the globe with my husband and friends. Oh and my little dog is basically my first child and the apple of my eye."
With over 10 years of experience in the fashion accessories and jewelry industry, Leslie has great attention to detail of what makes a product and brand truly unique.
