Emily Harris & Her ReBuilt Life by Special-T
There is a very good chance that if you know Special-T, you know Emily Harris. She is our world-renowned Special Projects and Quotes Liaison, office snack provider, and die hard Georgia Bulldog fan! We are beyond proud of Emily for all that she does for us, but she, too, is a wonderful example of Special-T’s three-fold mission statement: Building Tables, Building Community, ReBuilding Lives. Emily has completely rebuilt her life and she credits a large part of that to Special-T.
Since March is the perfect time to celebrate the women in our lives, we wanted to tell Emily’s story. In 2015, as a newly single mom-of-three, she was laid off from her job. She unexpectedly received a call from a recruiter looking for a receptionist for a company that sells tables. Even though that was a little out of her skill set, she figured she should go to the interview and at least give it a shot. After interviewing, it was evident Emily had found the perfect company for her and the rest is history.
Special-T is perhaps best known for it’s ReWork Program, but we’ve also helped ReBuild our local community and the lives of the rest of our employees. Since starting at Special-T, Emily has established stable housing, bought a new reliable car, and gotten her oldest son almost through college. She’s honed her sales skills, travelled the country selling Special-T tables, and grown into one incredibly strong woman. Emily played a crucial part in helping us more accurately identify the beneficial intangibles of working at Special-T. Because we are a family first company, Emily says the flexibility from remote work to in-office work at Special-T is the most important to her. “I’ve never questioned my ability to be a mom first and be there for my kids when they needed me because of the flexibility Special-T affords me” – Emily Harris.
As we go through the rest of Women’s History Month, we wanted to highlight Emily. She deserves this recognition and so much more. She’s always going above and beyond for her customers and happy to help with you all your quoting needs. Give her a call today to celebrate the amazing woman we have here at Special-T!
