Staff Profile: Eva Maggs

Name: Eva Maggs

What do you do at Kathryn Wilson?

I'm a store girl…I work in the retail team in any of the three stores. I usually work 4 days a week so I get to help lots of ladies find their perfect pair! 

How long have you been with KW?

I joined the KW family in February 2018, so have been here for nearly 18 months now. It's been pretty great so far :)

What is a typical day like for you at KW?

When I get to a store I start with general admin, getting any online orders or other jobs ticked off before we open our doors. Throughout the day I help ladies find their perfect pair of booties (that 's what I like to call them!) In between customers, I am with my feather duster, rearrange the store, and work on shop playlists. Rearranging the store or the shop windows is one of my favourite jobs, so aesthetically pleasing!

What’s your favourite thing about working at KW?'

Both the staff and the customers are absolutely lovely people to work with. I think its pretty awesome that our entire team are women - it makes it a very empowering place to work. As for our customers, so many of them are a breath of fresh air - its such a good feeling when you know they've walked out with a pair of shoes that have made their day! 

What is a funny work memory?

I can't think of just one memory, however I have lots of little laughs on a daily basis, whether it’s a funny conversation with a customer or another team member!

What are the values that drive you?

Diligence, integrity and love

What is your favourite style this season and how do you wear it?

I can't go past a good trainer!! I love something that I can wear with anything, and for me, thats a trainer. In the colder months I usually reach for jeans or a mini skirt, a snugly knit and my trainers. Although in saying that, I also recently got my hands on the Gabriela boot, which I am LOVING for dinner or a night out - they are just soooo gorgeous.

What does having happy feet mean to you?

Happy feet are when you look down at your shoes and smile! Shoes that give you happy feet put a spring in your step, they make you walk with confidence 

What do you love doing when you’re not working, hobbies?

I'm a big time foodie, so I love catching up with friends over a yummy meal.  I always try to treat myself to a meal out on my days off, and Auckland has so many good places to choose from. I enjoy fitness so usually try to fit in a workout where I can. I also enjoy baking when I have the time for it!

Top 3 Cafes/eateries recommendations?

This is a tough one at the moment because there are so many good places to choose from and it really depends what you're in the mood for! I have a food Instagram (@evaa.eats) so I tend to go out for food any chance I get! The places that have really been satisfying my cravings recently would have to be Little Bird, Bowl and Arrow (love a good smoothie bowl), Amano,  the food truck garage, Azabu, Umu pizza, William St Eatery, Giapo, the list goes on....   

If you could only take 3 things with you to a deserted island….

My boyfriend, my Mum and an unlimited supply of whitakers chocolate.
