It takes a family of hard workers to run a company like Kalalou and we couldn't be prouder of the group we've assembled. That's why we've decided to periodically feature a Q&A with one of our many awesome team members here on the Kalalou blog. This week, we're thrilled to introduce one of Kalalou's young stars, Kristy Moore. She's one of our full-time Regional Sales Managers with a sharp wit and heart of gold. We hope you'll enjoy getting to know a little bit more about Kristy and look forward to meeting the rest of the Kalalou crew!
