Dot Ahrens

Mary Kay independent beauty consultant


Background: “I do sales for KNYE and Pahrump Life. I was working for Delta Airlines in sales for over 23 years. I have been doing Mary Kay part time for 22 years. I even worked in a funeral home. I love the people I meet in sales. Pahrump has a lot of nice people. I now do Mary Kay full time. Working sales I got to marry the man of my dreams. When I was 38 years old I went to night school and got a degree in marketing.”

First job: “My first job was working with Sears in the toy department.”

Personal: “In my spare time I like to work in my yard and dig in the dirt. I even like cleaning my own pool.”

Business climate: “Pahrump is right for Mary Kay because people like to look good out here. People in the desert need to keep their skin looking good. I don’t feel like I am 81 because I have been using Mary Kay for 35 years.”
