THIS MONTH WE ASKED : “ During the rush of the holidays , what is your favorite way to pause and enjoy the season ?”
Lynne McNees • President lynne . mcnees @ ispastaff . com • 1.859.226.4260 “ We love our annual road-trip between chilly Lexington , Kentucky , and sunny Tucson , Arizona , to spend time with family . The drive to and from is a great way to reset and reflect !”
Jessica Roberts • Marketing Specialist jessica . roberts @ ispastaff . com • 1.859.425.5072 “ One of my favorite ways to decompress is listening to music , especially holiday tunes . There ’ s nothing quite like a little Michael Bublé to put you in the holiday spirit !”
Crystal Ducker • Vice President crystal . ducker @ ispastaff . com • 1.859.226.4427 “ We love hopping in the car in the evenings and visiting different neighborhoods to explore all of the fun holiday decorations and lights . We laugh , sing and enjoy the wonder around us .”
Emily Eckler • Fulfillment Coordinator emily . eckler @ ispastaff . com • 1.859.687.7013 “ Sing Christmas songs at the top of my lungs , bake delicious treats , and cuddle up with my niece and nephew to watch ALL the Holiday movies .”
Amy Finder • Graphic Designer amy . finder @ ispastaff . com • 1.859.963.1877 “ I eschew the rush as much as possible : Social dancing with friends . Hot chocolate and a cozy movie . Stargazing bundled in a blanket . A scented bath with candles and calming music .”

Stacie McWilliams • Membership Manager stacie . wallace @ ispastaff . com • 1.859.226.4292 “ On ‘ The Eve of Christmas Eve ’ ( aka December 23rd ) my family has a silly tradition of opening one small gift together . We usually hang out after — sit by the tree and fireplace or go look at Christmas lights . In my mind , it ’ s what kicks off the Christmas festivities .”
Samantha Smith • Project Manager samantha . smith @ ispastaff . com • 1.859.219.3619 “ It ’ s important for me to set aside quiet time at home with Jasper ( my dog ) during the holiday flurry .

Marja Walker • Graphic Designer marja . walker @ ispastaff . com • 1.520.891.3439 “ It ’ s always fun to take a break from the hustle and bustle to have lunch , a spa day and spend time with my sisters and our mom . Celebrating three Christmas birthdays .”
Kirsten Wright • Member Experience Specialist kirsten . wright @ ispastaff . com • 1.859.226.4207 “ We ’ ve started traveling during the holidays . A quiet walk on the beach is my sweet escape — taking this time to pause and reflect while enjoying a beach sunrise fills my cup .”
