Amber

My name is Amber.

I started working at Inspirations at the beginning (I named it!)

My job at Inspirations is team leadership development and product curation.

I started dance when I was 4, my favourite dance memory is being backstage with professional dancers when I was in the Nutcracker.

Something I always had in my dance bag was *shimmer tights* (it was the 80’s).

If I could eat something for the rest of my life it would be oysters.

My current obsession is perfecting yogurt making.

My ideal day at work would be finding 3 new and exclusive products to carry in the store, followed by a team meeting where we share our accomplishments and design our next set of goals.
