November 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!

“Kansas has been with us for a couple of weeks now, and has still kept her grace and awesomeness to this day.

Tell me about one of your favorite moments at KLC.

I love the feedback from customers when I’m doing a good job. One customer complimented me, saying that I “have great energy.” That one made me blush.

What is your greatest talent/quality?

Being understanding and having compassion. When it comes to the people around me, I do my best to be understanding of their situation and have compassion toward their struggle.

What’s your spirit animal?

A buffalo, because they represent abundance and gratitude. The buffalo is a symbol of loving and giving, gentle in nature but firm in resolve.

Service Star Store Leader: Coe Selgestad

“Coe! You’re always so helpful and informative. I know I can come to you for any questions or concerns and be confident that you will have a solution! You always step up to the situation and take it head on and OWN IT. I truly appreciate you always asking if you can do anything to help out. It’s a great feeling knowing that you’re looking out for us!” –Yolanda Siles

How long have you worked at Kerbey Lane Cafe?

12 years.

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

I absolutely LOVE the people I work with! But I would have to say my favorite thing is all the volunteer opportunities at Kerbey Lane. I take great pride in being the Community Ambassador for the UT location and I get a lot of gratification from giving back to the Austin community.

If your last meal were at Kerbey Lane Cafe, what would you order?

The iced coffee. That’s it. I’m obsessed.

Tell me about one of your favorite moments at KLC.

After 12 years at Kerbey Lane, it would be really difficult to choose just one favorite. But I will say, I loved getting to interact with the mini horses at Kerbey’s 35th birthday party!

What is your greatest talent/quality?

I pride myself on being a cat whisperer. I’ve never met a cat that didn’t like me!

What’s your spirit animal?

(Please see answer to previous question.)
