Protection 1 is filled with talent, and not just in our customer service skills. Our employees are gifted artists, gamers, athletes, and more. Today, as part of our 5 Questions with… series, we’re talking to Faye Weckle.
Faye is a customer service representative in our Wichita Call Center and a gifted musician heading to Atlanta next week to tryout for The Voice. I changed up a few of the questions to learn more about her upcoming trip.
1. When did you start performing?
I have always been a vocalist. In middle school, I was selected to be part of a quartet and attended State. In 2009, I was the lead singer in a band I started on my own. Our guitarist moved away so I decided to learn to play guitar. I have been playing and singing my songs ever since.
2. What events at P1 have you performed at?
I have played for my training class – they were curious about the 12 string guitar I had to pack on my
back that day, due to having practice after work. I was invited to a perform at the event called “The Evening with the Best” in December 2014. P1 held a talent contest where I submitted a video of myself performing live at a community event held in Oxford Kansas and my video was selected as the winner to play live for everyone at P1.
3. How did you decide to try out for The Voice?
I decided to audition for The Voice last year. I even registered as an artist, but couldn’t make the trip. (The cost to drive or fly to the location was just not affordable at the time). My family, my friends, my fans and my followers have finally gotten me motivated. I am ready to tackle this year with a whole new attitude. I’m going to explore all my musical options. I have never auditioned for any kind of music opportunity so for me, this is huge!
4. When is your audition and how can we help?
My official audition date is February 14, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. I have been raising funds for the last 30 days to assist with travel, child care fees, and lodging for the two nights I will be there. Anyone that would like to support me in reaching Atlanta can donate at my site: www.gofundme.com/fayeweckle
5. What is your favorite thing about working at Protection 1?
I love that I get to help people from all over the nation. Plus the atmosphere here makes it nice to come to work. Co-workers are happy, customers are happy, and where else can you play your guitar at work? That makes me happy!
Thanks for the time, Faye, and good luck at your audition! If anyone wants to help Faye out, check out here donation site, here.
