Oklahoma City Store Manager
When she came to the states from Bulgaria to study psychology, Mariya Azary would never have predicted where she’d end up. A passion for shoes led her to a part-time Sales Associate position at Payless ShoeSource in Oklahoma. She loved her job from the start, and her enthusiasm was obvious to her supervisors. She was good at multi-tasking and proved she was responsible. Soon she became an Assistant Manager, then a College Manager in Training. Now she manages her own store in Oklahoma City, where she hopes to stay for a while.
“I’ve enjoyed every minute of my journey. It’s not just the shoes. It’s the people, the interaction with the customer and the excitement of the challenge every day. I love where I am.”
