Today we’d like to introduce you to Anna Morris.
Hi Anna, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
My name is Anna Morris and I am a professional dancer for the Phoenix Suns and the top buyer for Jaunty, a new boutique in Scottsdale! I am pursuing my degree in Business Management with a minor in fashion at Arizona State University. I have always had a passion for making a statement through fashion, so getting the opportunity to continue to gain experience working with an established and cutting-edge boutique is a dream come true.
As a dancer, I have recognized the power of feeling good in your clothing and what it can do for your confidence. Getting the opportunity to help other women in Scottsdale feel amazing in their own skin is one of my favorite parts of the job. One of my biggest role models is Sydney Zmrzel, the owner of Jaunty. As a young entrepreneur, she recognized my passion and business mindset and has helped me trust my own creative visions to elevate Jaunty. We really feel as for the future of Jaunty, the sky is the limit!
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Moving all the way across the country, knowing absolutely no one was the scariest yet most rewarding decision I have ever made. I didn’t find my place right away and it was far from easy. I felt discouraged and lost at times! After joining the Suns and being surrounded by girls who shared similar passions, I finally felt home.
CULTURE SHOCK! Moving from the south was definitely an adjustment. I felt a little awkward and out of the loop at first but now I have discovered how to hang onto my Southern roots and also be inspired by other lifestyles and fashion.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Jaunty is a new cutting-edge/trendy boutique in Scottsdale that has been featured in Forbes, 17 magazines and more. I am Jaunty’s top buyer. I get the pleasure of selecting all of the styles brought to you. 🙂
What quality or characteristic do you feel is most important to your success?
I believe in my authenticity to where I am from. My attention to detail of what clothing makes me feel best and loving Jaunty like my own have been the characteristics that have bred success.
