TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR ROLE AT THE WALKING CRADLE COMPANY.
I’ve worked with Walking Cradles since early 2016 as the web and multimedia manager. I had the amazing opportunity that year to relaunch the e-commerce website. Since 2020 I’ve taken on a more marketing consultant role. I manage the online ad campaigns and get to create fun videos with the rest of the team! One of my favorite tasks is taking the new line of shoes and showcasing them in various forms through video!
Before everything got shut down I used to enjoy various theme parks (I miss Disney World!) and traveling. I hope to pick that back up someday but my current obsession has been reading. I’ve always been an avid reader but being tucked in all day at home made me an obsessive reader! You can also find me writing small stories and rewatching old science fiction shows on Netflix on any given day.
TELL US ABOUT ANOTHER WOMAN WHO HAS PLAYED AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN YOUR LIFE AND WHY.
It’s difficult to narrow this down to just one woman! I’ve had the privilege of working with some amazing women in my lifetime but I’m going to have to highlight my writing buddy, Lisa! Lisa and I have known each other since college. We met in college and briefly worked together at the local movie theater where we discovered each other’s love of stories! Currently, Lisa is following her dream to teach English in China. I find it incredible that she was able to continue to pursue her goals through a global pandemic and a few health scares. Even though we’re in different continents, we still find ways to talk and discuss our small stories ideas.
If I could give my younger self advice I would tell her to relax and talk to people! I’ve always been a person who considered good grade the be very important. So I’m afraid I spent too much time in my college days chasing A’s and working (I had three part-time jobs at one point in college) then enjoying the experience of college life. I came out with some amazing friends and memories but I do wish I could’ve relaxed a little bit more in college. So my advice for anyone in college: don’t take your grade too seriously!
BEFORE WORKING AT WALKING CRADLES, DID YOU CONSIDER THE IMPORTANCE OF SHOES FITTING PROPERLY AND COMFORTABLY? IF YES, WHEN AND WHERE DID YOU LEARN THIS VALUABLE INFORMATION. IF NO, TELL US HOW IT HAS CHANGED YOUR THOUGHTS ON FOOTWEAR?
Honestly, I didn’t think much about shoes before starting at Walking Cradles. All I knew was that I didn’t like heels because they were too difficult to walk in and so they weren’t worth the trouble of figuring out. But since I started, I’ve slowly worked my timid feet into a few heels that are in my regular rotation. I will always be a casual sneakers sort of girl, but I do like that Walking Cradles was able to help me find the right fit of heels for a geeky girl like me!
I’ve had many favorites over the years so I’m going to highlight a couple of shoes! One that very much fits my personality (easy-going) and a heel that a heel-shy person like myself keeps reaching over every week!
The Osmond is one of my go-to casual booties! I have to give the Orleans an honorable mention however; really anything from the Metro Collection is right up my alley! But the Osmond in olive green is one of my absolute favorites since the green color meshes with my mostly-green wardrobe. The Osmond is so easy to slip on and off and I find that when I’m wearing them I never have to think about my feet because they’re taken care of for the rest of the day! When I’m not wearing the olive green pair, I spice it up a bit with everyone’s favorite: the leopard print!
I’ll never be a 6-inch stiletto heel sort of person but I do feel confident with a little bit of boost in my Billie heels. The Billie is really more of a bootie then a heel but the subtle kitten heel in these booties make me feel like I’m really strutting! I have these booties in both black and the leopard print and wear them both at least once a day.
As for an actual heel, the one style that I’ve found to be suitable for a sneaker-loving girl like myself is the Heidi. The Heidi is a low block heel that comes in so many different colors and patterns. I find that the short 1 ¼ lift to be just the right height for me to comfortably walk in without worry.
