It’s widely known at Party Tables that JENNIFER RANGEL takes care of people, and people respect her for it! We got the chance to catch up with Jennifer and learned a little bit more about this passionate events professional with the funniest sense of humor. Enjoy this read that’s the newest in our ‘Meet Our Team’ series!
PARTY TABLES :: Hi Jennifer! Thanks for taking some time to chat. Share with our readers what your role on the team at Party Tables is.
JENNIFER :: I suppose that I am Sales support, and administrative assistance. I do everything! I answer phone calls and emails. Answer questions and take orders. Get lunch, and help clients in the showroom, I think it would be easier to say what I don’t do! If you call in a last-minute order I just might pull it off the shelf and pack it up!
PARTY TABLES :: Love it! Out of everything you do, and the many hats you wear, what do you find the most rewarding?
JENNIFER :: Direct deposit every Friday!! (laughing) Actually, I really enjoy helping people. I like to think that all the sales people can do more because I am here to back them up, and that makes me happy.
PARTY TABLES :: Happy employees and happy customers seem to be a theme for Party Tables. Would you say that this is something that makes Party Tables a special company for customers to work with?
JENNIFER :: We try our very best to say yes. We will do what it takes to make you happy, and most of the time when you call, you get a person. You get me, and I want to help!
PARTY TABLES :: When helping clients do you have a favorite linen?
JENNIFER :: They are classic, but I love the Bertani line. There are a lot of colors, and I think that they are so fun!
PARTY TABLES :: Putting the spotlight on you…in your free time, what’s your favorite thing to do?
JENNIFER :: I have a lot of kids! So, when I am not at work, I am catering to their every whim. I coach soccer for my daughter’s team, I support my 12 and 13-year-old wrestler and football players from the bleachers and even wear a Boy Scouts uniform on occasion! Oh, and about me…I love to read, and really enjoy spending time in the mountains.
PARTY TABLES :: Do you have a favorite quote or life motto?
JENNIFER :: “This too will pass”, it sounds bleak, but it serves as a reminder to me that the good goes by far too quickly and we need to hold on to it for as long as we can. When it is gone, it is gone.
PARTY TABLES :: Speaking of things that go by too quickly…when Friday comes around each week is there a song that makes you want to break into a ‘happy dance?’
JENNIFER :: My favorite song right now is Bruno Mars‘ That’s What I Like. Whenever it comes on in the office we turn it up and sing along!
PARTY TABLES :: Yes…that’s definitely a ‘happy dance’ song! Thanks again Jennifer for taking time to chat. Know that you are appreciated by the Party Tables team and clients alike!
JENNIFER :: Thank you! I love that while working here I can talk to people and get to know them, and allow them to get to know me no matter where they are. We have clients all over and I would say that many of them are my friends, though we have never met.
