While we know that our success is largely due to the quality of services that we provide, KT Connections wouldn’t be here today without the team that we’ve put together. That’s why we like to take a few moments each month to introduce a member of our team to you. This time around, we wanted to help you get to know our purchasing agent, Jan Gaffney.
When she’s here in the office, Jan is busy wrangling our vendors to ensure that we can provide the best products at the optimal price. This has been a bit of a nightmare challenge as of late, for reasons we’re sure you understand. Regardless, she says that the flexibility and familial atmosphere around the office keep her going.
At home, Jan likes to stay active around our beautiful area—which makes sense, considering she was once a competitive Class 1 gymnast. She can often be found hiking with her pitbull Belle, four-wheeling, camping, or just taking a leisurely ride on her motorcycle. When she stays in, Jan can frequently be found hanging out and playing games with her grandkids, watching ridiculous horror movies or Fried Green Tomatoes, reading one of Stephen King’s works, or trying her own hand at writing.
Lately, she’s taken to making up for lost time and exploring America’s history, and someday wants to visit her ancestral roots by traveling to Ireland (as well as Disney with her daughter and grandchildren). Certainly not lacking goals, Jan also wants to relax on a beach or in the mountains to focus on her next great written work.
Sounds like Jan has a whole lot on her plate, but we’re confident she can accomplish all that she wants to! Thanks for being such a hardworking member of the KT Connections team, Jan!
