“It’s not just a career it’s a lifestyle”
Talking with Industry Professionals
My name is Erika Mixdorf. I’ve been in the industry for 23 years now. I am desk coordinator and inventory at KJ & Company for just over 2 years now. Kind of like another one of my coworkers, I’ve seen every avenue under the sun but never left. It’s an environment that I don’t want to be out of. Whether I’m behind the chair or behind the desk it’s just fun, it really is. It’s a lot of what you put into it is what you’re going to get out of it, and that’s what it comes down to.
It can take you so many places. I’ve got to travel because of it. I’ve got to meet people that I would have never in a million years thought I would have ever met. You get to be the first for people too. You know that person sitting in your chair that maybe hasn’t told their family that their pregnant, they’re going to tell you. The first one to tell their engagement to because they’re not ready to tell their families. They want to keep their babies name a secret but it’s ok to tell you. It’s awesome the things that people share with you, and you get to take that you with and know they trust you enough to do that.
I’ve made friends for life with my guests, and you can’t change that. I just know I wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s not just a career it’s a lifestyle. It’s your family, its everything to you.
