Moxie Girl knows that one of our biggest assets is our outstanding team – and we look for a whole lot of, well, MOXIE when adding to it! In the first of a series, we are shining our spotlight on our Moxie, Cat.
Catherine, Cat for short, joined the Moxie Girl team in May of 2017 and quickly began showing off her propensity for bed-making. With her “hospital corners”, pillows fluffed to dreamy perfection and an eye for eye-catching designs, Cat doesn’t just ‘make a bed’ – she creates a comfy and inviting work of domestic art!
I recently had an opportunity to catch up with Cat and get a little more insight into our own Queen of Bed-Making…
Moxie Girl: Other than your passion for bed-making, what should we know about you?
Cat: I am humanist, born and raised in Arizona and currently studying psychology & philosophy.
MG: Have you always been what some people might call “obsessed” with bed-making perfection?
Cat: Working for Moxie Girl has definitely enabled and encouraged my “obsession for bed making perfection”. I have always appreciated a beautiful bed, but was not always able to put one together.
MG: Who first taught you to make a bed? Does this fascination with bed-making run in your family?
Cat: I don’t remember if my parents taught me how to make a bed or if I taught myself… However, I was professionally trained on how to make a bed at Moxie Girl by Wendy. Neither of my parents are obsessed with beds but I do have a few obsessive bed-making aunties.
MG: Do you make your own bed every day? Do you take the time to get fancy with it?
Cat: I like to make my bed every day! It just makes me feel like I’ve got life figured out. BUT the only time I really make my bed is when I first lay fresh sheets.
MG: What’s your favorite source of inspiration for creative bed dressing? What is your current favorite look or design?
Cat: I love to look on Pinterest for different ways to make beds. Nothing beats a big white fluffy bed. I consider my style minimal and simplistic!
MG: I happen to know you’re also an expert at folding sheets. Is there a task that frustrates you to the same degree most people get frustrated by attempting to neatly fold a fitted sheet?
Cat: I cannot bear ironing! I hate ironing dress clothes. I am simply just not good at it!
MG: What do you feel are the three most important qualities of a Moxie Girl?
Cat: Kindness, grit and playfulness.
MG: What is YOUR favorite thing about being a Moxie Girl?
Cat: My favorite thing about being a Moxie girl is getting to learn new things from all of the angles of the business, whether it’s learning how to market and network or learning new ways to make a room beautiful.
Awwww…Cat, you make any room more beautiful just by being in it!
