Meet the PMC Team: Amber’s Pumpkin Family

PaulMichaelCompany_MeetTheTeamThis is Amber, she’s a sales associate at our Lafayette store and jack-o-lantern extraordinaire! Instructions on how to make an adorable jack-o-lantern family of your own to follow. First we’re going to let you find out a little bit more about the cutie patootie cajun queen.

What is your favorite item in the store right now? My favorite item in the store is probably the old windows. It was my first purchase after I started working there and it is a great addition to my room.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself…A fun fact about myself is that I like to wakeboard. Over the summer I was able to compete in the beginner division and won first place overall. Hopefully I will advance for next season!

What is your favorite jam at the moment? My favorite jam at the moment is “roar” by Katy perry. All of her music is just fabulous :)

What do you love most about working at PMC? My favorite part about working at PMC would have to be my coworkers. I feel like it is so easy to talk to them and I have gained new friendships.
