About this program
The Alyce All-Stars program exists to highlight Alyce Customers and Friends who have mastered the art of “personal experience.”
An All-Star prioritizes Building Rapport, Earning Trust, and Generating Loyalty over making someone feel like just another face in the crowd.
All-Stars challenge the status quo and – while they’re not officially Alyce employees – we consider them an extension of our team. They find creative ways to infuse our core values of Give First, Give Consistently, Be Crafty, Seize the Present, and Unwrap the Possibility into their unique way of doing business.
This week’s All-Star is Katherine Butler, Marketing Specialist at Locum Tenens.

Q. What are some of your personal interests?
I used to play volleyball and it will always be a passion of mine; I always watch it during the Olympics. I also love to travel though that feels far removed right now because of the pandemic.
Q. What was your first digital screen name?
My main one was GeorgiaPeach1466. It’s crazy how screen names can be cemented in your head.
Q. What song is on repeat for you right now?
Right now, Baby Shark or Wheels on the Bus is on repeat for sure. Also the album Solar Power by Lorde.
Q. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A whale trainer or a veterinarian. I would absolutely take a job at Animal Kingdom if they would let me. I can’t say that I truly would want to do that now though, since we know about the dark side of the industry at places like SeaWorld.
Q. What’s your favorite thing about either the place where you live right now, or the place where you grew up?
I’m a townie and I moved only an hour away from where I grew up to a place called Alpharetta. I joke that it’s almost too nice of a town. It has amazing city programs, like gymnastics for my daughter. My favorite thing is a social event called Wire and Wood. It’s a songwriter’s festival over two days and there’s music everywhere. Plus it’s free to attend.
Q. If you were to write a memoir about your life, or release your first music album, what would the title be?
“From Horse Girl to Something” — I was a horse girl growing up so I think that would be a good way to start.
Q. What’s something you consider yourself to be okay at, not great at, but you still love doing?
I love Excel. I’m really not that great at it, but I love the challenge. I’m a Virgo so anytime I’m planning a trip or something there’s always a spreadsheet. I just love the organization of a spreadsheet.
Q. What is the best gift you’ve ever received?
I don’t want to be sentimental and say my daughter, but in the grand scheme, my daughter. Otherwise, it would be when my husband surprised me with tickets to Hamilton.
Q. If you were to go on a vacation would you rather go to the beach, on a safari, or to the mountains?
I have to say safari because I’ve done the beach and the mountains before. I definitely wouldn’t do the drive-through zoos. It would need to be a legit safari in Tanzania.
Q. If you could give a piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Don’t place so much weight in the opinions of others.
Q. Would you rather be an Olympic gold medalist or win a Nobel Prize?
I’m gonna say an Olympic gold medal, not for the notoriety, but for the experience of winning a gold medal. I just love the event and how the whole world comes together.
Q. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Morning person. I get in bed at 8:30 pm and I’m up at 6:30 am whether I want to be or not.
Q. How did you meet your childhood best friend?
Her mom asked my mom and I to come over and bake cookies.
Q. If you could live through any event in history, what event would that be?
Probably the moon landing.
