Having grown up going to Gerry’s Music Shop on weekends to help her parents and grandparents around the store by vacuuming and dusting, it was only natural for her to begin working during the summers between her years in college. While at the store, she does a little bit of everything. She helps her mother in the office, filing contracts and answering billing questions, and she helps her father in the back room by organizing and cleaning the rental instruments. Her favorite part of the job though, is helping the customers that come into the store and who attend the band and string rental nights that many school music programs host. She says, “It’s such a great experience to help children try an instrument for the first time. They are all so excited about being part of the band program, and the looks on their faces when we give them their new instrument are always priceless.”
