Angel - Chief Sparkle Specialist and Founder
After serving on active duty in the US Air Force for 12 years, this dedicated Army wife and Air Force Reservist decided she needed a bit more color and sparkle in her life. She created PenGems to offset all those years in camouflage. Angel enjoys spending time with her husband, running in the local 5k, or traveling around the world. She wants to live the beach life, and the Caribbean island of Antigua is her home away from home. She also loves to cozy up on the couch and shop online in her PJ's while watching the newest episode of Shark Tank. Angel believes in her favorite quote, "there is always something waiting for you at the end of the road. If you're not willing to find out what it is, you probably shouldn't be out there in the first place."
Amanda - Sparkling Operations Supervisor
This El Paso native moved miles from the comfort of family and the wide open desert to Central Texas in 2014. Ready for life's adventures, she traveled to this area with a car of belongings and a heart full of hope. The sparkles aligned just right, bringing this quiet and independent go-getter to the PenGems headquarters. This candy eating, Ninja Turtle-loving new mom dislikes shopping (unless it is at the local Barnes & Noble), so she spends most of her time trying to conquer her newest adventure...motherhood! She makes life look easy by staying true to herself. Like Dr. Seuss says, "Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you!"
Lindsay - Customer Service and Order Fulfillment Sparkle Specialist
Born and raised in Houston, Texas, sweet Lindsay moved to the PenGems headquarters area two years ago. She is a loving and dedicated Army wife. You can catch her creating a majestic home with her frequent Hobby Lobby trips, or maybe relaxing and reading a P.C. Cast and Kristen Cast book. Her tender heart and special smile makes our customer service and fulfillment processes run smoothly every day. She believes it is up to you to see the beauty in everyday life.
Misty - Social Media and Marketing Sparkle Specialist
Born as the oldest of 10 siblings, this military brat grew up in the Midwest but was raised in Texas. She is a proud wife and mother of three beautiful children who always keep her busy. When she's not running to a sporting event, she spends her time gardening and enjoying the country life. Her quirky personality keeps the girls at the office laughing and she truly is as bubbly as she seems on our social media accounts. Her optimistic attitude radiates even on Monday mornings (when we don't necessarily want it, but need it).
That's everyone (so far!). We'll see you soon!
