Lisa Crooks - Employee Spotlight August 2021

Lisa Crooks - Employee Spotlight August 2021

Lisa's Journey Here:
With one phone call, Lisa Menard Crooks transformed her journey from selling bicycles to establishing a career in sales with Home Furniture at our Johnston Street location beginning in January 2018. Prior to joining our team, Lisa owned and operated Capitol Cyclery for 42 years in Lafayette, LA.

What do you like about being a salesperson?
Lisa said “It doesn’t matter what is being sold, whether it’s bikes or beds, I just make sure I sell myself and my company, and Home Furniture makes it easy for me to welcome the customer and be the best you can at showing them what they need! It’s so exciting and such a joy to help them! I work with some great people, and I know that I have a great team that supports me. I love Home Furniture! It’s such a great team effort here. And if you love what you do, you’re never really doing a job!”

When Lisa isn't at work:
When Lisa was asked what she likes to do when she isn’t at work, she said “I enjoy cooking, but the highlight of my time off is spending time with my two-year-old granddaughter, Scarlett. And I’m looking so forward to my second granddaughter, Audrey, who is due August 8th!”

The ONE thing most of us don't know about you?
What is one thing most people don't know about Lisa? She says “That I am the woman I am today because of my growing up with seven older brothers! That taught me to be strong!”

Advice for anyone wanting to join our Home Furniture sales team?
What is Lisa’s advice for anyone wanting to join our Home Furniture sales team? “Always focus on the moment with your customer. They are excited about shopping and making a purchase and we need to be just as excited, and that’s what makes it so much fun!”

Frank Kolarik, Johnston Street manager, adds, “Lisa is certainly one of the most interesting people that I have had the pleasure to work with.”

Lisa can always be found with a smile and with plenty of enthusiasm and excitement. It’s easy to see why she loves her job so much. She has a vast and comprehensive knowledge of the products she sells, but she also possesses a wealth of knowledge of being in “the people business.”

Born and raised in Lafayette, LA., Lisa now resides in Scott, LA. with her husband, Jack.
