December Service Stars

Each month Kerbey Lane Cafe honors two Service Stars. These are team members who exemplify the KLC core values, who lend an extra helping hand, and who are all ‘round awesome people. They are certainly worthy of a spot on our blog. Check them out!

How long have you worked at Kerbey Lane Cafe?

3 months

What is your favorite thing about working at Kerbey Lane Cafe?

My fellow team members. I’ve worked in the restaurant industry for the past 10 years, and the Kerbey environment is a breath of fresh air.

Tell us a little about yourself and what motivates you as a volunteer.

Anytime I can, I like to lend a helping hand; I love to volunteer. In addition to participating in Kerbey’s volunteer projects I also volunteer at Foundation Communities.

What causes do you care most about?

I do a lot of work with underprivileged families right now. I love kids and I used to work with the Boys and Girls Club. I would like to get more involved with helping the homeless.

Why do you believe it’s important to volunteer?

Giving back is important; I have nothing else going on more important than helping others within my community.

Why do you think Kerbey Lane makes giving back one of its priorities?

Because they’re an Austin family-owned business and feel a responsibility to give back to the community that has given so much to them.

Are there any skills you use as team member at Kerbey that come in handy during volunteer projects?

I’m really good at reading people. When you can read people, you can figure out how best to serve them without them having to tell you anything.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

The ability to have people view the world from the perspective of others.

My fellow team members–everyone is very friendly.

Tell me about one of your favorite moments at KLC.

Last year during my birthday, the entire kitchen team celebrated with me and they even bought me a cake!

Tell us a little about yourself and what motivates you to give great service to guests.

Each day I try to improve myself; I try to do a little bit better than the day before.

Are there any skills you use as a team member here at Kerbey that come in handy during everyday life?

Multi-tasking. I’ll lend a helping hand wherever I am needed at the time.

What’s your favorite pancake flavor?

Blueberry

What’s your spirit animal?

A bull, because they are strong. (The bull symbolizes strength and power in both their physical and spiritual presence.)

Congratulations to our December Service Stars!
