Amber joined Kara’s team in 2011 after the workload, emails & hours required to keep Kara’s Party Ideas running got to be too much for one person to handle alone. Amber’s impeccable attention to detail, amazing organization skills & excellent computer knowledge won her the spot at Kara’s side. Amber handles many emails, calls, submissions, questions & whatever else Kara puts in front of her…which yes, includes late night texts & phone calls asking for her help. What would Kara do without this amazing girl?!
