We are excited to announce that Nefeli Southern was Aspen Tan’s Team Member of The Month in January and John Lezama was Aspen Tan’s Team Member of The Month in February! This month we sat down with them both to learn more about them. We hope these blog posts help you get to know our team members a bit better. Don’t forget to say hi if you see them in the salon!
How long have you been an Aspen Tan team member and what location/s do you work at?
Nefeli: I have been working at Aspen Tan since October 2016 and I work in Boulder.
John: I have been working at the Aspen location of Aspen Tan since 2011. I am currently the manager of the Aspen salon.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself!
Nefeli: I am Greek/American so I speak Greek! I travel to Greece every summer to visit my family and explore the Islands — It’s the most magical place in the world!
When you’re not working, what do you like to do?
Nefeli: The Boulder/Denver area has an amazing music scene and great venues so I love going to concerts and I’m always planning my next one. I also love living so close to the mountains and try to go skiing or hiking as often as possible!
John: I absolutely love going to the gym. I work 7 days per week, but I always make time to sweat it out!
What do you love about being a part of the Aspen Tan team?
Nefeli: Our bosses our really awesome and are very involved and helpful even though they don’t live in Boulder. Also everyone is really nice and there to help out when you need it. I’ve made really great friends!
John: I like everything about Aspen Tan, but I can say that what I love most is being treated like family. That’s what make me confident and happy to come work everyday here. We really are a family!
What songs do you like to jam out to while working?
Nefeli: Depends on my mood but the ODESZA Pandora station is usually what I have on in the salon.
John: I like Today’ hits, country hits, and Jack Johnson radio.
What is your favorite tanning bed and why?
Nefeli: The black level – room 2, because I don’t have a lot of time to tan often. This bed keeps me really tan even though I only use it once a week.
John: My favorite tanning bed is the Prestige 1100. It doesn’t take a lot of time and I never get too hot.
What is your favorite tanning lotion and why?
Nefeli: I just bought the Devoted Creations Tanlife maximizer and I really like it. It’s super moisturizing and I definitely see a difference in how tan I get. I also really like the Devoted Creations Lively bronzer because it smells like cupcakes and works really well!
John: My favorite tanning lotion is Tan Life. It is clear, smells great and dissolves so easily!
