Team Member Spotlight: Amber

Amber is an Illinois native with a burning love for dinosaurs and Jeeps. In her 5 ½ years with OneSpace Amber has held many positions, including Domain Analyst, Data Project Manager, and Solutions Consultant. She has also played a huge role in making OneSpace an awesome place to work by being a member of our culture committee.

Amber has recently decided to pursue a lifelong dream and is moving to New Zealand, and the entire OneSpace team is certainly going to miss her. Besides having a positive attitude and being one of the most approachable people in our office, she is an expert at everything she does and knows how to get things done. Basically, Amber embodies all of our core values.

As a send-off, here are a few interesting facts about Amber!

Q. Where are you from and what brought you to OneSpace?

I live near the OneSpace headquarters in Swansea, and I worked in a corporate atmosphere before coming here. I wanted to cut down my commute and work somewhere where I could help a business grow because my old company wasn’t really open to change.

Q. What is your favorite OneSpace Value?

“Be an expert” because we’re still traveling unchartered waters, so we have to know exactly what we are doing and think strategically. I believe that gives OneSpace an advantage over other newer companies in the industry.

Q. If you were trapped on an island, what three things would you bring?

1. A teleportation device, so I could get back to the mainland
2. A camera so I can take pictures of the island (since I won’t be staying long)
3. And, scuba gear because I’m assuming this is an island in the Caribbean

Q. You are the new addition to the crayon box – what color are you?

Black, because it’s used most often and I, too, like to think of myself as someone that can wear multiple hats and be a part of different projects.

Q. What is your favorite 90s song?

System of a Down was my favorite band, but my favorite song from the 90s is Nine Inch Nails—“Reptile.”

Q. What is the funniest thing that happened to you recently?

I spilled my coffee all over my lap. It hurt really badly, and I was so soaked that I had to change into my workout clothes.

Q. What was your dream job growing up?

I wanted to be a director, and then I wanted to be a cinematographer.

Q. If you could be any car, what car would you be and why?

I would be a CJ7 Jeep Wrangler, hands down.

Q. Do you have any hidden talents?

Painting—a lot of people at OneSpace don’t know that I can paint.

Q. Do you have a lifehack that changed your life?

You can put dishwashing pods in the washer with your whites, and it makes them less dingy. (Seriously! Try it!)

Q. If someone named a sandwich after you, what would be on that sandwich?

Pepperoni, marinara sauce, American cheese, mayonnaise, lettuce, and pickles.
