Introducing Emily


Hey there, It’s Emily!! I’ve been here at Lambert Home for nearly FOUR years, isn’t that wild!? Katie and Sarah have been my Bible study leaders since I was literally in 6th grade, so it was completely natural for me to join right in as soon as I could drive! Around here they refer to me as the store’s general manager, so if you come in you’d most likely see me putting away fabric and tile samples, dusting the vases, or organizing the back room! While I enjoy doing all of those things, my absolute favorite days at the store are moving days!! Any time that I get to hop into Katie’s truck and help deliver 200-pound tables, or carry a huge chair up a flight of stairs, or move all of our Christmas items to and from storage are such a thrill for me!! I live for those days where we get to throw on some sweatpants and just dig into some hard work! (In my case, I almost often end up wearing my corduroy pants on accident, and let me tell you, it’s very unfortunate! lol!)  When I’m not working, I’m pretty much always either hanging out with my two doggies, Charlie and Mocha, watching crime shows, planning some fun random event,  doing yard work, or hanging out with my friends!

While I absolutely love working at Lambert Home SO much, I’m actually about to graduate from UNT in December with my bachelors degree in social work (yayyy!!), so I’ll be beginning a whole new career with Child Protective Services pretty soon (but we’re trying not to think about that)! I cherish every fun, spontaneous moment that we have here, every chipotle feast, every day of lifting heavy boxes, and every project thrown my way, because it’s what makes working at Lambert Home so special!!
