Employee Spotlight: Larry & Talitha

Our resident power couple - Larry and Talitha Edwards are staples of our customer care team. When not servicing the legions of Speakman customers, our office lovebirds enjoy reading, spending time with family and diving into some mouth-watering tacos.

We invite you to get to know more about Larry and Talitha.

Question: How long have you been with Speakman?

Talitha: It will be three years this upcoming March.

Larry: I've been with the company for about 2 1/2 years.


Q: What is your favorite Speakman product?

T: I'm a big fan of the Speakman Reaction Shower Head. I have really curly, thick hair and it's excellent at rinsing out shampoo.

L: The Icon 8-Jet in oiled rubbed bronze is by far my favorite. It's a robust shower with a beautiful ebon luster to it. The copper undertones add an aged accentuation to a very contemporary product. It really provides a warm, rustic, natural feel.


Q: Morning or night shower?

T: I prefer to shower in the morning.

L: Me too, although I am known to shower multiple times a day.


Q: As members of customer care, what's one of the wildest stories you've heard from a customer?

T: There are a lot of stories. There was this one time where I helped a customer, and they kept calling back every day for about a week to thank me for my help and to get some more advice. It was pretty hilarious.

L: I have heard them all. But there's this one story about a shower head that's been passed down from generation to generation. That always stands out to me. The customer went to some pretty crazy lengths to restore it to its original condition.


Q: What's it like to work with your husband/wife?

T: It's nice. We get to eat lunch together every day as well as commute to work. He also sits across from me, so I get to yell out to him if I need help. We also never take work home with us, at least not past our commute.

L: Yeah, to be honest, it's great. We never have those "you work too much and I never get to see you anymore" discussions. We have an adequate level of separation in our roles that allows for us to enjoy our work professionally. I get to enjoy lunches with her and talk about things that may have come up. We also do well in separating work life from home life.


Q: Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

T: I like to read, I laugh at the silliest things, I love to spend time with my family. Oh, and I LOVE tacos!!

L: I also enjoy spending time with my family. I like basketball. I'm a martial artist of 30+ years. I also enjoy reading and spend a reasonable amount of time studying the philosophies of expressions of the human condition through music and film.
