Meet Jalayne Ellis
Jalayne Ellis- Financing, Administration, Safety Guru
When you walk in the door here at Hanlon’s you will likely be greeted with a friendly hello and a big smile from Jalayne. She sits right in the centre of the action in the showroom and definitely adds to the liveliness of the place. She has worked at Hanlon for 12 years now and really loves her job. She says the customers are a big part of why she enjoys working here, but it’s also the staff. “It feels like a family here, and doesn’t just feel like a job,” she says. “I wouldn’t drive an hour to work everyday if I didn’t like the people,” she laughs.
For the past 6 years, every day Jalayne makes the commute from her home in Vulcan. She and her husband Jeff, along with their Husky-Wolf cross named Brandi, have lived there together for 6 years. They recently tied the knot last year, after almost 7 years of dating, and are planning to start their family in the near future.
When Jalayne isn’t at work, or traveling to get to work, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family. In the warmer months you can usually catch her at her family campground, which is basically her home away from home. Jalayne also enjoys playing baseball with her team in the summer.
A few random facts about Jalayne… Born and raised in Picture Butte, doesn’t like odd numbers, used to be shy, and she says she “may or may not have a problem with buying too many [eye] glasses.”Back to News & Events
