Employee Spotlight: Sandy Pennell

 Each month, we feature one of our hardworking staff members here at TJM Promos. This month’s Employee Spotlight shines on Administrative Assistant Sandy Pennell!

What do you do at TJM and how long have you worked here?

I have worked here about one year. Long story short, I came and then Covid-19 hit.  The past year has been a whirlwind, and we rolled with the circumstances. I assist with orders, billing, phones. Anything the administrative department is involved in, I try to support.

What’s your favorite aspect of your job?

The most favorite part of working at TJM Promos is seeing all the wonderful promotional products our sales and art team put together and create. It is amazing to see quality in the designs and products!

What are your hobbies/interests outside of work?

I enjoy spending time with my family, walking in nature, taking care of my house plants, listen to podcasts, especially murder mysteries and whodunits!

Tell us a little about your family.

I am a wife of 13 years to my husband Dennis, who is now retired from E-One in Ocala.  I am a mother to my two beautiful children, Michael and Kathryn, who grew up in Ocala and both now live in Gainesville (FL).  I am a grandmother to my two handsome grandsons, Nicholas (13 years old and in middle school) and Emory (5 years old and is in kindergarten).

What do you like most about living in central Florida?

I like living in Central Florida because there is so much to do and see.  We are about an hour from each coast, so day trips are wonderful! You can be swimming in the Gulf or Atlantic. Take your pick! Also, there are many springs and state parks that makes Central Florida so special!

What do you like best about working for TJM?

I like working for TJM and the family atmosphere we have here. This is a great group of people to be with every day!

Any exciting things planned in the future?

We will be installing an above ground pool at our home within the next couple of weeks. I am looking forward to that!
