Office Manager

Good thing Melissa has teenagers at home, they taught her how to deal with the crazy-fun pace at Promolux. She’s ready to pounce like a tiger on any task, project or phone call. And while she’s got the swagger and cool-confidence of Beyonce, she’s certainly not a diva. Melissa’s “how can I help?” attitude keeps the office and clients happy. Her stylish collection of high heels reminds you she’s a lady, but when she’s ready to get down to business, only flip-flops will do. If she had a superpower it would be to blink her eyes ala “I dream of Jeannie” and go wherever she wanted. In the meantime, she’s granting wishes every chance she gets.

Creative Director

To John, everything is art. From his early performances in various rap groups to skateboarding to his current role as creative director, he sees art in everything he does. “It’s just a matter of what tool you use to create it.” John is always trying to improve his work and change his perspective. He thinks that when you get comfortable, you’re done growing. Not John. His mind is constantly buzzing. The only thing that quiets it: the destructive interference of the sights, sounds and sensory overload of Vegas. It calms him.

When asked the very important question, “If you were an animal what would you be?” John’s answer: Animal from the Muppets. He’s calm and then in a blink, he’s crazed.

Program Coordinator

She’s smart, sassy, sweet, and ALWAYS on the go. Maybe it’s her running shoes, or that she drinks Mountain Dew by the case, or that she really, really wants to fly, but whatever the case, Amy tracks more steps on her pedometer than all of us combined. She is seriously considering wearing roller blades to the office to be even MORE efficient.

But as sweet as Amy is just know that if you mess with her or her family – watch out! She’s like a fierce lioness ready to pounce. Whatever the task, Amy’s on it. And she does it with finesse, precision and LOTS of energy. Just like the queen of the jungle.

Office Assistant

Mother to Winnie and Oscar, Amber always tries to emulate the loyalty and cheerful attitude her dogs bring into her life. You can count on Amber’s comfortable, easy nature to keep things in the office moving along. Always efficient, she wishes she could fly to avoid traffic (and gas prices!). Little known fact – she hates to wear socks. Makes the Wisconsin winters pretty long.

When not at work, you’ll find Amber with her family. They’ll be floating down a Wisconsin River, at a Milwaukee Brewers game, spending time “up North,” or visiting grandma in Florida. Even Winnie and Oscar like the trips. And her rocker alter ego? Gwen Stefani. Stylish. Talented. Hot husband. Not a bad list of reasons. She “ain’t no hollaback girl.”
