How did you come to be a retail salesperson?
Retail is in my blood. I grew up with grandparents who owned a successful retail store in Christchurch, and my parents run a thriving wholesale and retail group. Working in retail came naturally from a very young age. I started as the Christmas gift wrapping ‘guru’ at Quinns Christchurch at the age of nine and have been involved in retail ever since.
What bought you to DYRBERG/KERN
Having worked for other brands during university, I migrated back to the family business here at DYRBERG/KERN. What can I say? Selling beautiful Danish, hand-crafted jewellery is the best nine to five job anyone could ask for!
What makes a standout retail salesperson?
A standout retail person is someone who is approachable, relatable and a down to earth, fun person. They treat their customers like a friend – not a shopper.
Tell us about a memorable sale you’ve made this year
I love helping girls choose jewellery for a special occasion, be it their wedding or an evening event. I had a gorgeous lady in the store recently looking for jewellery for her daughter’s wedding. She decided to break the traditional mother of the bride rules and rock a gorgeous jumpsuit, cuff bangles and a beautiful pair of statement earrings. When you get a hug from a customer at the end of a sale – you know it’s one to remember.
