Introducing A Star: Meet Meghan

Introducing A Star: Meet Meghan

How long have you been with glitterstarz, and how did you hear about the position?

In November it will be 3 years... which is crazy to think about! It seems like yesterday I started. Time truly flies here. I actually heard about the position from my Grandma Carol, who was searching online for me to help me out after being laid off from my previous job when the company was bought out. She knew I had a cheer & dance history and was looking for something in the Graphic Design and Marketing field -- so it was PERFECT!
 

what is your role at glitterstarz?

I started here as a designer, then was promoted to lead designer, and now I am the Creative Director as of January 2018. I assist the other designers to make sure they have everything they need to do their jobs efficiently. I also assist the Social Media department, Email Marketing, and Webstore departments as needed. I occasionally travel to competitions and coaches conferences, as well as other cheer related events. I also look over every order before it goes into production to ensure that colors, fabrics, stone types, etc. are correct.

what is your favorite memory from working at glitterstarz?

Ohh man, that is a really tough one. Every day, even on the tough days it seems like we make time to laugh and have a great time at work. I love all of our birthday parties here because they are always themed and I LOVE a good themed party -- or any excuse to dress up, hence why Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. (Also we get free cake... so that's never a bad thing!!)
 
Off the top of my head, one of my favorite memories has to be traveling to Nashville. We had our mannequin, Britney in the back of the car and we were dressing her up in different outfits. We stayed at the Gaylord Opryland Resort, which is like an adult indoor Disneyland! There were tons of restaurants, shopping, and sights to see. Plus we met a lot of amazing new teams, and customers we have talked to for years on the phone/online but never met "in real life." I had an absolute blast there.
 
 

what IS YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCT, RHINESTONE DESIGN, ETC., THAT YOU HAVE SEEN COME TO FRUITION AT GLITTERSTARZ?

Another incredibly tough question. There are so many designs I have loved. The Trinity Force unicorn uniform was awesome to see come to life as I helped to design it and it was so unique and colorful. I also love our Comic Book Collection... and the Elements Collection (Earth, Wind, Fire, Water). Over the past few weeks, my favorite uniform has been either Texas Cheer Amarillo or Adrenaline Allstars.
 
 

What is your favorite thing to do outside of work?

I love going to as many concerts as I can, hanging out at home with my husband watching Netflix, and visiting with my nieces and nephews. I also love to drive to my hometown to see my family & friends there. I grew up in a really small town which is a nice change of pace every once in awhile. There's no traffic and you can actually see the STARS at night ! Plus... there's a really awesome cheese factory... I LOVE cheese LOL !
 

What is one thing people may not know about you?

Well, I already mentioned this but most of my customers and some of my co-workers didn't know that I'm a huge Halloween fanatic. I love dressing up and doing crazy makeup every October. It's only appropriate that I was chosen this month for Introducing a Star... in October !
 

What is something exciting that has happened to you this year?

I just got married on September 21st ! It was an amazing day. After 2+ years of planning, I can't believe it's over. It was a beautiful day and I am so happy that so many of my friends, family, and co-workers could make it out to see us get married and have a great time with us.
