Employee Spotlight: Karlie Buck
Meet Karlie Buck, one of our incredibly talented showroom consultants from our Milford Headquarters. Karlie has been a valued member of the Clarke family for eight years and continues to bring her knowledge in customer service and luxury appliances to our clients each day.
Growing up just a couple towns away in Wrentham MA, Karlie started out as “an avid soccer player throughout high school and was passionate about many diverse genres of music”. After graduating Mount Ida College formerly in Newton, MA with a bachelor’s degree in business management, Karlie began her career in luxury retail. “I pursued my love for sales prior to coming to Clarke at Nordstrom in the Special Occasion Department and Ralph Lauren as a sales consultant.”
Karlie began her journey at Clarke working in the customer service department looking for new ways to solve customer’s challenges. Karlie recalls, “with my passion to solve problems and help clients, I was promoted to a Showroom Consultant three years ago.”
“My favorite part about my role here at Clarke is being able to help clients achieve their goals, whether it’s a new build project on the coast, remodeling a townhouse, or even replacing an existing appliance. It is very satisfying when a client’s project is complete and they feel compelled to tell me how immensely delighted they were with their experience.”
When Karlie isn’t helping clients achieve their kitchen goals, she is enjoying her long-time passion for music. “I love music – everything from Contemporary Jazz to Techno to Blue Grass to West Coast Rap. I have traveled all over the U.S. and internationally to appreciate my love for music and of course, with music comes dancing, which is one of my favorite activities.”
Although she has traveled all over the world, Karlie is still a New Englander at heart as she is an avid Boston Sports fan. Sports have always been a big part of Karlie’s life as she explains, “I started riding horses at the age of four and was competing by the age of eight.” Karlie shares that she in addition to her soccer roots and tennis, she has become quite the “accomplished equestrian” with many championships under her belt on the Hunt Seat Equitation (jumping) show circuits.
“My fondness for art and music has driven my passion to design innovative solutions for our clients”. Clarke is so proud to have well-rounded and dedicated individuals like you, Karlie as part of our Clarke family.
Thank you for everything that you do here at Clarke Karlie, we are very lucky to have you!
