Meet KARA, one of our awesome event specialists! 



Q: How did you become a member of the FLEXX crew?

KARA: I got so lucky! I had heard about FLEXX when my really good friend had an interview for a marketing internship years ago. We used to sit in the coffee shop studying and would find ourselves looking through the FLEXX gallery talking about how much fun it would be to be a part of all of that. Flash to 2 years later, I came home from a vacation at 2 in the morning and decided to look for any job listings…FLEXX had one, botta bing, botta boom here I am!

Q: As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up?
KARA: The entire time growing up, I ALWAYS wanted to be a veterinarian. I have always had a passion for animals from a very young age. With a dad as a veterinarian, I was lucky enough to spend a good amount of my childhood days going to work with him, jumping in appointments to help him, and learning a lot about the veterinary industry. It was not until my junior year of college that I decided it maybe was not the route I wanted to take, but to this day I will always have a soft spot in my heart for animals and the people who take care of them.

Q: Were you named after anyone or do you have any nicknames?
KARA: I wasn’t named after anyone in particular, but I actually have quite a few nicknames. My mom and brother call me Karabean or just Bean. People at the office call me Karbear and other nicknames over the years are Pez, Karizzle, and Chumpalumpagus….don’t ask…

Q: If you had to work on only one project for the next year, what would it be?
KARA: Only one?! That is such a hard question! Playing the guitar and being able to sing has always been something I wish I could really be good at and I really want to learn how to fly fish! But, if I had a year to work on only ONE project. I would HAVE to attempt to finally meet Taylor Swift.
Step 1: Make an awesome video, most likely using a Taylor Swift song parody, to send to Ellen DeGeneres explaining why I should meet the one and only T-Swift.
Step 2: Upload said video to YouTube.
Step  3:Get at least one million “likes” so Ellen sees said video and loves it.
Step 4: Wait for Ellen to call me, invite me on the show, and surprise me by having Taylor Swift waiting on standby.
Step 5: Mission Accomplished.

Q: What is your favorite song lyric? Who is it by?
KARA: I absolutely LOVE Taylor Swift! (If you read question 4, you probably already know this). Fortunately though, I have not had a lot of painful heartbreaks to actually relate to (knock on wood) so none of her lyrics are currently my favorite, but if I had to choose one right now it would be by OneRepublic from a song called “I Lived”:
Hope that you spend your days
But they all add up
And when that sun goes down
Hope you raise your cup
I owned every second
That this world could give
I saw so many places
The things that I did
Yeah, with every broken bone
I swear I lived


Q: If you were spontaneously given the day off, what would you do for the day?
KARA: My sister-in-law, Alyssa, my brother, Kevin, and my boyfriend, Jake, have started this idea we like to call “Epic Days”. One day we were on our way to go snowboarding and after having already been in the car for 2.5 hours, we saw a sign that we still had 3 hours just to get to Eisenhower tunnel because the traffic was that bad. At this point we decided to turn around and make it into an “Epic Day”. We went bowling, put on all of our snow gear, found a patch of snow and took pictures like we had actually made it to the slope that day, then we went to see a movie at a theater you can recline in sofa chairs and order a beer, and we ended the day with Red Robin. From that point on, we decided we are going to plan more Epic Days to do the random things you’ve always wanted to do, so if I was spontaneously given a day off I would most definitely make it into an Epic Day. I know we’ve already started a list of ideas for our next epic day, so maybe I would grab some friends and do a bike brewery tour or go kayaking. Life is too short to not take advantage of those rare moments.

Q: What are you most proud of?
KARA: I am most proud of the wonderful people I have surrounded myself with in life. My grandpa is a good example. I was lucky enough to be help fulfill my grandpa’s request of going skydiving on his 85th birthday last year. Man, he is cool.

Q: If you were reincarnated as an ice cream flavor, what would it be? 
KARA: If I were an ice cream flavor I would probably have to say coffee. First of all, I LOVE coffee beyond words and probably drink it way too often, but I am a pretty energetic person, I love being around people and since coffee is in a lot of social settings and makes everyone’s day better, I think it is pretty fitting!

Q: If you had to choose a motto for FLEXX and the FLEXX crew, what would it be?
KARA: Anyone who has hung out with our crew for an extended period of time would know there is no simple answer to this question haha…this is the best thing I could find:
If we weren't all crazy, we'd just go insane.--Jimmy Buffett

Q: What are your hopes for 2014?
KARA: In 2014, I just hope to be successful in my life in general. I want to keep my friends and family close as well as take advantage of any opportunity that I have. As of next week I will be crossing off a half-marathon from my bucket list when I run the Horsetooth Half! I just want to be able to continue to challenge myself and not only cross things off my bucket list, but continue to add to it!

Meet MORGAN, one of awesome new assistant event specialist! 



Q: What brought you to FLEXX?

MORGAN: A whole lot of good luck... Working at FLEXX has become the dream job I didn't know I was searching for. I'm originally from the Loveland/Fort Collins area, and when the opportunity arose, it gave me the chance to move back a little closer to home and to work a little more closely with my family. Needless to mention, I've found friends and a place I love to be, too. Lucky, indeed, I'd say.

Q: If you were spontaneously given the day off, what would you do for the day?
MORGAN: I would ask for the weather gods to give me snow, I'd get a nice big cup of hot chocolate to drink, and I'd binge watch Grey's Anatomy.

Q: What do you "know now" that you wish you "knew then"?
MORGAN: Adopting a basket full of kittens will solve any problem.

Q: Have you ever had any nicknames? What were they?
MORGAN: Funny you should ask... I never really had a nickname, that is until I came to FLEXX. My real name is Jessica, but that makes me Jessica number three here in the office. Morgan is my middle name, and that's what FLEXX knows me as.

Q: Describe your perfect vacation.
MORGAN: Unlimited food, unlimited laziness. Sunshine negotiable.

Q: What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
MORGAN: Does getting gas count as a chore? That's the worst. I'd take mopping, sweeping, dishes, and laundry over that one any day.

Q: If you turned into your fiance for one day, what would you do?
MORGAN: I'm not sure I could handle a day as my fiance... He's kind of a superhero.

Q: If you had to choose just ONE word to describe your experience at FLEXX, what would it be?
MORGAN: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Q: What are your hopes for 2014?
MORGAN: I'm just excited to see where this year takes me - with life, with work, with everything. We've got a wedding to plan, I've got a whole lot to learn at FLEXX, and I just want to make the most of it all.
