Following a career for a public utility for just over 30 years (11 years in various non-management positions, 19 years as a manager in various groups), Chris Hansen needed to figure out what to do in "retirement." Sit around and watch TV (and eat bonbons)? No, that just wouldn't do!
The answer – and so much more – came via her then next-door neighbor (a Mary Kay sales director), who had some ideas for her ... and nearly 20 years later Chris is enjoying a second career with Mary Kay, as well as enjoying her retirement to the fullest.
Come hear Chris's story on Thursday, July 25, at noon at the Gateway Centre's third floor conference room. Although she won't be talking specifically about products, there will still be a drawing (or two or three)!
