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 Lauren Paige, Senior Regional Marketing Manager at Veracode!
Learn More About Lauren Paige:
Q: Share with us some of your personal interests?
I’m a mixology master, I love a good cocktail outside so summer is my time to thrive. I am seven months pregnant right now but I love hosting and having people over so I make drinks for everyone. My specialty cocktail is a cosmopolitan but I don’t like to make them too sweet. I’m currently working on perfecting my skills with making drinks with egg whites in them. It’s very specific and hard to nail, it’s really a science.
Q: What was your first AIM screen name?
Oh god it’s so embarrassing. It was Basketballkitty87. I played basketball in middle school but I can’t say I’m some sort of basketball connoisseur.
Q: What song is on repeat right now for you?
I’m always playing Alanis Morisette, she’s my go-to for karaoke too.
Q: As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A marine biologist. I was terrible at science classes so it didn’t end up being the right path for me. I thought marine biologists were just professional scuba divers who got to hang out with dolphins.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about the place where you live? Why and how do you take advantage of it?
I actually live on the same street that I grew up on. I’ve never moved a day in my life. My dada actually built our house for us, so my favorite thing about living here is that my whole family is right down the street. My parents have a house with a really long driveway, then my brother and cousin live in the house my mom grew up in, and my husband and I live three houses down. It’s so nice to be able to see my parents every day and it will be great when the baby comes to have family so close.
Q: What would be the title of your first music album?
I would say something cheesy like Fortunate and Fun. I grew up super close to my family and I feel so fortunate to have them so close to me, plus we always have fun together. My family are my best friends.
Q: What’s something you consider yourself to be ok at but not great at?
I feel like I’m ok at so many things but I will say there are things I want to like doing that I just hate. For example, refinishing furniture. Online tutorials make it look like it’s going to be an easy, rewarding process and it’s just not.
Q: What is the best gift you have ever received?
My parents gave me a coin necklace. The coin is from a shipwreck outside the Florida keys. My dad has the same one, so it’s our thing we share together and I think it’s the cutest thing in the world.
Q: Beach, safari, or forest vacation?
Beach for sure. We have a lake house in Gilford New Hampshire which is nice but if I’m thinking about a proper beach I’d want to be in Sarasota Florida. I don’t like to be in the ocean but sitting on the beach with a drink I could do all day.
Q: If you could give a piece of advice to your younger self, what would it be?
Don’t be so hard on yourself and it doesn’t matter what other people think. Especially when you’re younger and you care so much about what other people think of you. It ends up not being worth it in the end.
Q: Would you rather be an olympic gold medalist or win a nobel prize? And why?
The Olympic medalist feels like it would be really hard, physically. Just doing a lot of training and having htat be physically taxing on my body so I’d rather be a Nobel Prize Winner.
Q: Are you a morning person or a night owl? How do you like to start your day?
I’m a good middle-of-the-day person. Between the hours of 10am and 6pm I’m in my zone – like normal times.
Q: How did you meet your childhood best friend?
We met in pre-k or kindergarten and I came home to my mom and told her I made a best friend in school that day. Her family moved when we were in second grade so we never really grew up together but she was my first best friend. I’ve seen her a couple of times since but we’re not super close.
Q: If you could live through any event in history, what event would that be? Why would you want to live through that event?
The twenties. I think we need to bring back the excitement and fashion from the 1920’s, it felt like it was just alive all the time.
