Q: What is your favorite part about working at Culver’s?

A: The people! I really love working in the afternoons at the Culver’s of Frankfort, IL, that is when I usually see my regular guests. Being able to develop those relationships has been the ultimate prize for me.

Q: Do your regular guests know about the new commercial?

A: They are so excited! Some of the guests, they don’t even watch TV, but they are going to be on the lookout when it airs.

Q: Does your team have a name for your custard machine?

A: Lucille! We give her a lot of love and try to cater to her needs, so she can produce our really good frozen custard. Sometimes we say, “give her some love” and we rub on the side of the machine. It just works!

Q: What do you like to do when you are not working?

A: I love to hike, walk trails, anything outdoors! One summer I was an aquatic invasive species specialist at Lake Mead National Recreation Area in Nevada. It was a great experience to be able to teach people all about the different resources that we have and the species that we protect.

Q: We heard you want to open your own Culver’s someday?

A: My heart landed on seeing myself here for a long time and eventually owning my own restaurant. I could see myself setting the foundation for what my restaurant could be in the future, just how the owner of my restaurant laid out that foundation for me.

Q: What is the most important thing you have learned from working at Culver’s?

A: To be my most genuine self. This is a life lesson that changed my perspective on everything. Gaining acceptance isn’t everything, but being comfortable with who you are certainly is!

A: I love traveling and hanging out with friends. I’m also big into amusement parks and will ride any and every ride out there!

Q: We heard you want to work in air traffic control some day. Tell us about that!

A: Since I was a kid I’ve always loved flying and watching planes, however the idea of aviation as a career didn’t even register for me until my second year of college! On the first day of my management class, one of the students said they were studying aviation management and I was so intrigued. I did the research and decided that was exactly what I wanted to pursue. It’s perfect for me!

Q: The most important question: What is your favorite Culver’s dessert to make?

A: Turtle Sundae (two scoops to be exact). It’s the perfect balance between Fresh Frozen Custard and delicious toppings.
