We Are Lowe Stories: Day 1 of International Women's Day Countdown - Team Lowe USA

02nd March '20

To mark International Women's Day this Sunday 8th March, Team Lowe worldwide are sharing some of their stories in the days leading up to March 8th.

For Day 1 we hear from Team Lowe USA! Meet Sarah Parker, Retail Account Executive, Leah Isakson, Special Event Coordinator and Sarah Cuttle, Sam's Club Project Coordinator!

Where did you see yourself at 17 (what were your career plans)?

"Graduating high school? Haha! I actually wanted to be a writer. But I always wanted, no matter what I was doing, to just be happy with where I was at in my life, in that moment, and striving to always be doing something that I am passionate about. Everything we do in life is an investment. Be happy with what you invest your time and effort in and you’ll be happy in your life."

What are your career highlights so far?

"Joining Team Lowe in 2018 has by far been a life changing experience. My ambitions, goals, and just how I aspire to be a better leader on a daily basis. I’ve experience such tremendous growth as a person and I can’t wait to see where this path takes me.

Going from Rookie of the Year in 2018 to Top Sales Performer in 2019. Just feeling that sense of appreciation in our Lowe family was the best feeling ever. To me, it signifies my continuous drive to take on challenges and succeed and I definitely couldn’t do any of it without the amazing mentors that I have and the Lowe family as a whole."

Who is your inspiration?

"Too many people to count! But seeing as this is International Women’s Day, the women at the top of the list are definitely my step mother, Connie, and my aunt, Anita. Both of these women never stop moving and striving to be better. They work so incredibly hard for their families and I definitely get my drive and worth ethic from both of them!"

Where did you see yourself at 17 (what were your career plans)?

"At 17 I wanted to join the Air Force. I wanted to follow my Dad’s career and carry on his name and legacy in the military. But I got scared and changed my mind when my Dad retired. When I saw thousands of people attend his ceremony and had so many wonderful things to say about him and seeing, in actual print, his long list of achievements and metals, I knew I would never be able to live up to the person he was."

What are your career highlights so far?

"I have many highlights I am proud of (like the time I got wheel seal certified to prove I could do what the guys could and I got ASE certified so our shop could receive a blue seal) but one of my favorite highlights was being able to work at Yokogawa Corporation with my precious Granddaddy. He was one of the original US employees when they opened a US office in Newnan, GA. Being able to work with him his last year before he retired was truly a blessing. I got to spend a lot of one on one time with him and the quality time to get to know my Granddaddy in a different light. I always saw him as the sweet man who took me fishing or to Dairy Queen every Sunday for a dipped cone after church. But at work, he was a beast."

Who is your inspiration?

"Hands down, without a doubt, this answer has always been, my Dad. He was the greatest man I have ever known. My Dad worked extremely hard to build a beautiful life for his family. We traveled every year to follow his dream of his 30 year career in the Air Force. Although at times it was challenging as I got older, moving all the time and starting a new school wasn’t easy, now I realize how much I got to see and experience and that would have never been possible had it not been for my Dad following his dream. He taught me a lot. Some things I have to constantly remind myself of when times are tough.

When my Dad passed away, I thought I lost my inspiration because my everyday life revolved around him and his daily affirmations and advice and guidance. I didn’t think I would ever have to go a day without him. He was invincible. But as time passed I gained another inspiration. My son, Lincoln. He inspires me to be the best version of myself. He pushes me and gives me a drive I can only imagine was the same driving force my Dad had to always, no matter what, “Do the right thing.” Those were my Dad’s words and I tell them to Lincoln every morning. While reminding myself of the same."

Where did you see yourself at 17 (what were your career plans)?

"At 17, I was working towards a career in counseling. I began volunteering with youth programs the year prior. Likewise, I began enrolling in college courses geared towards my desired major. I have always enjoyed helping people, especially young people. I really felt at 17 that counseling/therapy was the career choice for me!"

What are your career highlights so far?

"With my previous career choices as well as now, my highlights are by far traveling. I love seeing new places, learning new things and meeting all the great people along the way!"

Who is your inspiration?

"My inspiration is my family. They are always supportive and encourage me to strive for excellence. They are a constant through all the highs and lows of life.  I wouldn’t have made it where I am now without them!"
