In the spotlight, I asked Lexey to use three adjectives to describe herself. One of the words she picked was magnetic. Let me tell you, this is absolutely true. The first time I met Lexey at YBF, I instantly wanted to get to know her. Her outgoing personality and ability to talk to anyone about anything was captivating. She's the type of person you want to be friends.
Anyone can see she genuinely cares about everyone who comes into YBF and wants to make sure they have the best experience possible in the shoppe. That's why this week, Lexey is featured in our employee spotlight.
