Always willing to help out with any project and where needed, Emily has twice been named an Employee of the Month recipient for her hard work and dedication. <\/o:p><\/span><\/p>\r\n\r\n

Why did\r\nyou decide to work for Georgia Spa Company?
<\/span><\/strong>The company invests a lot\r\ninto their employees and recognizes each individual for their strengths and abilities,\r\nwhich is not something you often see in large companies. The size of the\r\ncompany also allows me the opportunity to experience a broader marketing spectrum and learn more as I grow in my\r\ncareer field.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What\r\nwas your first job?
<\/span><\/strong>I had a small part time job at a pottery\r\nstudio, but I would say my first real job was at Menchie's Frozen Yogurt. I\r\nworked as a mixologist at the Bethlehem, Georgia, location for the summer then I\r\ntransferred to the location near my college, where I became the store manager. I\r\ngot to travel and sit in on meetings with the CEO as well as discuss upcoming\r\nmarketing strategies with the marketing director, which I\r\nthought was really cool for a college student. That job also helped me land marketing\r\ninternships with Menchie's and King and Prince Seafood.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

Where\r\ndo you like to vacation?
<\/span><\/strong>I like to travel to new places. I like the\r\nidea of having no idea what's around the corner and just going for it. I prefer\r\ncool hiking spots especially ones with a beautiful view at the end. So I don't have one particular spot I like to travel, but if I had to pick a\r\nvacation destination, I would have to be Disney. I have so many memories there\r\nas a child having fun with my family.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

If you\r\nhad to eat one meal, every day for the rest of your life, what would it be?
<\/span><\/strong>Sushi! You can never\r\ngo wrong with sushi, either a roll or bowl with an iced chai to drink.<\/span><\/p>\r\n\r\n

How do\r\nyou prefer to spend your time off?
<\/span><\/strong>Depends, if it's a rainy day, I like to spend\r\ntime with my cats and either doodle or read a new book. If it's a nice day, I\r\nlike to go for a run and then spend my day walking my cats in their cat\r\nstroller.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What\r\nare three things you have left on your bucket list?
<\/span><\/strong>1. Jumping out of an airplane! I want to do\r\nthis because I am absolutely terrified of it.
2. Go through the police academy and serve a\r\nfew years as a reserve officer.
3. Open a business to help animals.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What is\r\na TV show you like to re-watch a lot?
<\/span><\/strong>My current favorite is the new Netflix hit, Wednesday, but prior to that I always find myself going back to Jane the Virgin.\r\nI like movies and tv shows with a good genre mix and a lot of twists and turns\r\nwhich is probably why I enjoy both of the shows so much.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What is\r\nyour favorite sport?
<\/span><\/strong>Competitive cheer is my absolute favorite\r\nsport. I did dance and gymnastics growing up and competitive cheer is the\r\nperfect blend of both. Some girls from high school and I started our high\r\nschools first competitions cheer team which is now a recognized sport at my\r\nhigh school.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What is\r\nyour hidden talent?
<\/span><\/strong>I wouldn't say it's hidden, but I can paint and\r\ndraw portraits to a certain degree. In my first year competing with my portraits,\r\nI got the lowest rank and the following year I took first place. Funny enough,\r\nI completely missed the awards presentation because I wanted food. I always pick food. I\r\nwent on to college to get a degree in art and now paint as a hobby.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What is\r\nyour favorite movie?
<\/span><\/strong>Big Eyes, it's an art based movie.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What is\r\nthe best advice you've ever gotten?
<\/span><\/strong>''If you focus on the semi in the other lane,\r\nyou'll find yourself going towards it.'' I heard this quote in chapel back in\r\nhigh school, and I have never forgotten its message.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What is\r\nsomething you would tell your 13 year old self?
<\/span><\/strong>Don't stress the little things, you'll ruin\r\nthe moments and the memories.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What is\r\nyour favorite quote?
<\/strong><\/span>I have two. ''Believe only half of what you see and\r\nnothing that you hear,'' - Edgar Allan Poe<\/p>\r\n\r\n

''The art challenges the technology and the\r\ntechnology inspires the art,'' - John Lasseter<\/o:p><\/span><\/span><\/p>\r\n\r\n

Do you\r\nhave any pets?
<\/strong><\/span>I have two cats I rescued. My oldest, Pumpkin,\r\nis an all black cat. I was leaving the Brunswick Theatre when my friend pointed\r\nout two kittens, and I made my\r\nfriend turn the car around. I saw an all black kitten, and I have always wanted\r\nan all black cat. Thanks to some leftover crackers in the car, we were able to\r\ncatch him. Unfortunately, his sibling got away from us. Pumpkin is what we call\r\na Covid-19 baby, which means he got so used to me being home that now he doesn't\r\nlike to be alone.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

A year later in 2020, I was leaving work and\r\ndue to the rain I decided to take a different way home. As I was driving I\r\nheard a loud crying and saw a kitten in the middle of the road. I jumped out of\r\nmy car and grabbed him. We took him to the vet, where they lost him, and two\r\nweeks later, we found him again and brought him home.<\/p>\r\n\r\n

What is\r\nyour favorite memory with Georgia Spa Company?
<\/span><\/strong>The 2022 employee appreciation rafting trip,\r\nwhen my whole boat flipped on its side and everyone except myself went into the\r\nwater.<\/p>\r\n\r\n
