Employee Spotlight: Kelly Beach-Lovitt
November 13, 2020

Meet Our New HR Director!

Kelly not only brings ample experience to the team, but also her joyful personality. We recently sat down with Kelly to ask some questions and learn a little more about her background.

Tell Us a Little About Yourself
I grew up in Warsaw, KY – a small town south of Florence.I’m married to JC Lovitt (who happens to love Jewel-Craft’s initials). I have Baxter, my dog who is a Pomapoo and lights up my life. I also have 2 cats, Catniss Marie and Turtle (who plays fetch and thinks he is a dog).

What brought you to JCI?
I grew up working in a family-run business, so JCI appealed to me right from the start. It’s impressive that JCI still maintains that “feel” while growing so quickly. It feels good to be a part of a team and a company so special.

Where is your favorite place to vacation?
OBX – Outer Banks. I love anywhere with a beach, but OBX has a hominess that I love. I actually almost moved there a couple of years ago.

What would you do for a career if you weren’t doing this?
Definitely a teacher. Elementary school. I changed my college path halfway through and went towards a business degree. But, early on in life, I always wanted to teach.

Tell us something that may surprise us about you?
I just had my first grandson born this summer! Easton Thomas – He is amazingly perfect and I am so proud to be his Nana.

If you won the lottery, what would you do first?
I am a planner, so the first thing I would do is sit down and make lists of where the money should go! I would want to make sure that all my family was well taken care of.

If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would you meet?
I would like to sit down with my grandma one last time. She passed away over 20 years ago. She and I just had this bond. I would want to know if she is proud of me. She always told me that no matter what the future holds, I am going to be ok. I still have dreams of her and in those dreams, she is smiling and saying, “you are ok.”

What is the first concert you attended?
New Kids on the Block! My mom and dad took me. I was a 12-year-old and so in love with them! My husband actually took me to see them again last year. They sound the same, but don’t look the same anymore. 🙂

Join Us in Welcoming Kelly to JCI!

Although it was just a short interview, we definitely uncovered some excellent nuggets of info. However, we know that this only scratched the surface on Kelly’s awesomeness. So, if you have a question for our new HR Director or would just like to say hello, send her an email at Kelly@jewel-craft.com.

Jewel-Craft is beyond excited to have Kelly on the team and we can’t wait for her to meet all our employees and clients. We are proud to add another talented professional to our ranks.

I just wanted to take a minute to express “Much Thanks” to the team of people that take care of me on a daily basis. Alyssa, Stephanie, and Lisa are always on top of things for me. For the last couple of weeks, after I told them that I’m preparing to go on my first vacation in over a year, I’ve noticed that they’ve been working very hard to meet (and usually beat) my deadlines to help ensure that I can vacation worry-free about my jewelry repairs. That means so much to me.
Michael, Williamsburg Jewelers
We LOVE Jewel Craft. Their customer service and quality of work is why we have been using Jewel Craft for over 15 years. We use them for repairs as well as custom design and they really do make dreams come true for our customers.
Margaret, Engelberts
We have been working with Jewel Craft for over 20 years and I continue to use them because they are reliable. It’s like having my own 30,000 sq. foot shop, that’s how easy they are to work with. Expectations are always met and but most importantly, they are met in a timely matter.
Greg, Windsor Jewelers
I received my most recent repair work this morning and wanted to reach out before time and the season get away from me. I've been in the jewelry business for nearly 25 years and I've seen "the good, the bad and the ugly" come out of the repair shop. You and your staff have given me an opportunity to compete for repairs with quality service I can promote with confidence. Thank you so very much.
Carol Taylor, Forever Knot in Jackson, TN
I am a goldsmith but do not have all of the tools and time to do my own custom work, so I work directly with Jewel Craft to make it easy for me and perfect for my clients. If I need a shank that is 2.35mm wide and provide my own diamonds, Jewel Craft follows all of my design details and makes the ring 2.35mm wide and sets the diamonds to perfection.
Raime, Raime Weber Jewelry
Jewel Craft makes it easy. I have goldsmiths on staff but when they are on vacation or we have overflow, I can count on Jewel Craft to get our repairs done so we don’t miss a beat. I also use them for custom design jobs due to their high level of technology and efficiency.
Donna, Boyle Jewelers
First batch of jobs just came back from Jewel-Craft, and we are VERY pleased! Excellent communication, quality work, quick turnaround, reasonable prices. Everything we hoped for! Thanks Ross!
