Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Kassandra Kruse and I am the Warehouse Coordinator at Lash Line.
I am a very creative person and I love to see my visions come to life. You can always find me doing DIY projects, furniture restoration, and photography!
I have two very crazy husky’s that always keep me on my toes but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Their names are Azoura and Timber. The mountains have a piece of my heart - I love to hike and be outside as much as possible in the summer. I love making memories with the most important people in my life (my family and friends).
How did you start your career at Lash Line/how long have you worked here?
I met Jessi through my sister - they used to be neighbors and their daughters are best friends. My sister let me know that Jessi was hiring and I had applied right away! I was just starting my lash career and wanting to learn and grow in any way I could. What better opportunity than working for Lash Line?!
Unfortunately, I didn’t get the job when I applied. A little while later I got a call from Jessi unexpectedly asking if I still wanted to work for her. Of course, I was ecstatic to accept this offer!
I have been working at Lash Line for 6 months now and I absolutely love everything about my job and getting to work long side these amazing powerhouse women! I have learned so much in these six months.
What does a typical day look like for you?
The first thing I do when I get to the warehouse is print all the packing slips for the orders. Then I pick, check, and pack all the orders.
I check and respond to any emails, then check my “to do” list on the platform we use to communicate amongst the team. I work down the list in order of priority.
I create graphics for the brand - Instagram feed posts, web banners and TikTok videos!
What’s the best piece of advice you've received?
Mmmm… this one is a tough question – it is hard to narrow it down to just one!
“LIVE YOUR LIFE FOR YOU, you will never please everyone so there is no point in trying: You are only given one life in this world so make the best of every moment you have because life is truly short! “
My dad is the one who really taught me this and the true value what that meant.
After seeing my dad get sick and diagnosed with an incurable disease, I truly understood the meaning of this and stopped taking things for granted. My outlook on life has changed! I value making memories, spending time with quality wholesome people and doing things that make me happy! Your life will change once you start living for YOU!
If you were stranded on a deserted island, what book or object would you bring?
I don’t like to read so I wouldn’t bring a book LOL!
I would bring a pocketknife with me - I am thinking survival tactics! Although I would need my dogs. They are my babies and I take them everywhere I go!
What is your favorite thing about your job?
I love graphic design. I love the ability to express my creative side. It’s so rewarding seeing my vision come to life! I love seeing my creations used in advertisements – I get to represent the Lash Line Brand and it’s such a surreal feeling.
Jessi is my mentor and it has been a huge privilege to work along side such a successful woman in business! I have to give her huge credit as she has helped me grow tremendously.
What’s something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t done yet?
So many things! The top one that comes to mind is travelling to Australia! There is just something about that country that just has a piece of my heart. I absolutely love everything about it - from the ocean to the culture. I am determined to save every penny and go there someday. I would love to try surfing while I am there!
What’s a work-related accomplishment that you’re really proud of?
I am really proud of all the videos I have made! I would like to grow and learn more into when it comes to videography. I love making videos from scratch and watching them come to life. Then I get to see people engage with my vision. It’s a rewarding feeling.
We hope you enjoyed learning a little more about Kassandra! She makes sure all your packages arrive on time and with love!
Thanks for joining up and stay tuned for our next feature!
