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?

A little over a year, collectively.

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

Definitely the team and the people I get to work with. I’ve worked at a restaurant before, but the environment here is teamwork-centered and I love that we have the opportunity to participate in volunteer events.

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

I feel like I am really lucky to be where I’m at and to have awesome family and friends around me, and to have the opportunities that I have. I think it’s important to pay some of that forward and help however I can.

What causes do you care most about?

Equal access to resources in schools, education and literacy in all its forms.

Which volunteer opportunity that Kerbey has offered have you enjoyed the most?

I really enjoyed partnering with United Way and volunteering with Austin preschoolers.

What’s your favorite pancake flavor?

Raspberry Lemon Chiffon, but I’m really interested in trying the Apple Whole Wheat with blueberries added.

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

I think it would be really cool to read people’s minds. It would be really, really useful.
