faces | BALLANTYNE KELLY YALE Birthplace: Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Job: Director of marketing, Fairway Independent Mortgage, Blakeney. Also a social media consultant for several organizations. What do you like most about your mortgage position? I love working for a company that cares about people and helping their financial future. It is so rewarding to see families come in to sign their papers and leave so happy to start a life in their new home. What's your guilty pleasure? I am a beauty junkie. I love everything about getting my hair or nails done or having a massage. Do you live in Ballantyne? I live in south Charlotte near Providence Planta- tion, but I spend all of my time in Ballantyne. What is your favorite Ballantyne-area restaurant? Honestly, I have a favorite "restaurant area"— Ballantyne Village. If I want Asian, I can go to Jade. For awesome Italian, Villa Antonio is great. And I think we all love Terrace Café! What is your favorite outdoor activity? I feel like this is a trick question because the first thing I think about is having cock- tails outside with my girlfriends. Describe your dream vacation. We vacation a couple times a year at Fripp Island, which is my little piece of heaven. But ideally, I would love to travel to Italy for a couple of weeks with my husband. What would your theme song be for walking into a room? "She Works Hard for the Money." I would be rather caught dead than wear ____. A University of Michigan jersey. I can't even imagine wearing anything blue and yellow, period. This rant is brought to you by a diehard Buckeyes fan. What charitable organizations are you involved with? The charity nearest to my heart is Bright Blessings because the organization goes into schools to provide birthday parties and gifts for children living in shelters. What is your biggest pet peeve? The four way stops at StoneCrest and Blakeney. WINTER 2012-2013 BALLANTYNE MAGAZINE 33
