JANELLE LESTER

Chief Guppy

In many ways, I'm like the girl next door. When growing up, I loved to play "school" with my younger siblings and got giddy over chore charts. Now, as an adult, I look at the Container Store like a version of Disney World, "Marie Kondo-ed" my whole house in record time, and identify and create processes and procedures like they're a form of oxygen in getting work done.

I've been referred to as a crazy cat lady, a health nut, and friend — I happily embrace all three.

Currently Residing

Raleigh, North Carolina

Which means...

  • I maintain efficiency and am oriented towards constant improvement in performance and identifying specific ways to help others improve and use their potential to experience success.
  • I'm uber responsible, quite logical and geek out over organization while maintaining a flare for being spontaneous, playful and creative.
  • I'm not afraid of being different and look for the unique and unusual.
  • Perseverant and resilient are practically my middle names, and I can strive after “higher values,” even at the cost of great personal sacrifice.
  • I'm motivated by a drive for freedom & autonomy; to manage & direct; and want to do something/be a part of something worthwhile.
  • I'm a big planner that likes structure, and have a natural ability to step into another person’s shoes, even if I don’t agree with their feelings or perspective.
