Employee Spotlight: James
What's your role?
Vice President of Sales.
How many years have you been part of the mattress making magic?
3.5 years and counting! (And an additional 5 in the industry.)
What do you find most rewarding about being part of the Shovlin team?
Plain & simple: helping people sleep better. After the Marine Corps, I have struggled with sleep problems, insomnia, back, and shoulder pain, so it’s rewarding to provide people with proper rest & a good night’s sleep. I know firsthand it makes a difference in your health & wellbeing.
What do you enjoy doing with your free time outside of work?
Hiking, traveling and spending time with my family. I also enjoy a good movie, cooking, and I’m currently learning Spanish!
What's something most people don't know about you?
I love soccer! I'm also the oldest of 5 kids and am proud to be a part of a big family!
Do you jump on the beds at the store, at home, neither, or both?
At the store I do! And suggest you try it too!
Do you have a favorite Shovlin memory?
I have two: the retirement party of a recent Shovlin employee (Steve, who worked at Shovlin nearly 40 years!) And when I made a house call in order to help an elderly couple; the husband was bedridden and having a hard time resting comfortably. Proud to say we were able to help. I’ll cherish knowing that we made a difference.
