The Clay City Times is pleased to announce that Gwen Reffitt has joined the staff as an advertising sales representative. Reffitt, the 29 year old mother of four children, including a set of triplets is looking forward to being a part of the Clay City Times family.
“I love how family oriented the Times is,” Reffitt said as she prepares to take on her duties as a sales representative. “From what I have seen so far, it is like a family here.”
Reffitt was originally born in Lexington and moved to Knoxville when she was a child with her family. However, after graduating high school she moved to Winchester. It was there that she met her husband, James Reffitt of Powell County. They have lived in Clay City for the past seven years. “We love it here,” Reffitt said.
She has held positions in doctors’ offices but had to take a break when she was pregnant with her triplets. Now she is eager to get back into the workforce. As for advertising, “It just came to me. I mean I was interested and I believed I could do a good job,” she said. “The last time this position came open I wanted to go for it, but someone was hired before I could get my name in. I was a little too late. When I heard the position came open, I jumped at it.”
Reffitt will take over for Mary Faulkner who has taken a sales position in Winchester in another field.
“I believe she will be a good worker for us. She is likable, personable and seems eager to get right to it,” Times owner Teresa Hatfield-Barger said. “I think it will be good for us and for her and we look forward to working together.”
“I am pleased to be here on this team and I feel very welcomed,” Reffitt said about her new position. “I am looking forward to helping our advertisers with their needs and their requests. I want to help them and in turn help the Times.”
