Every Monday, here on the CoWork Jax blog, we feature an interview with one of our members. This week, meet Amber Aultman!
Company function: Graphic and web design
How long have you had this company?
Copal has been an official LLC since 2010, but was on hold for a little and restarted on March 1.
Where did you go to school and what degrees do you possess?
I attended the University of Florida and earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and had a chemistry minor and then attended the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) and studied fiber design.
My favorite thing about CoWork Jax is…
…the sense of community and collaboration.
What is your favorite CoWork Jax event and why?
ArtWalk is my favorite event because it is one of the only times that everyone gets together and just hangs out; we aren’t working, we’re just having fun together.
How many hours do you spend at CoWork Jax each week?
I spend between 40 and 50 hours at CoWork Jax each week.
What is your favorite space to work at CoWork Jax?
My desk, which is the best desk at CoWork Jax.
Where do you order your lunch from most often when at CoWork Jax and what do you usually get?
I tend to bring my lunch a lot, but I like Olio or Burrito Gallery. At Olio, I usually get the house salad with smoked chicken and at Burrito Gallery, I usually get the tofu taco salad.
The funniest thing that I have seen happen at CoWork Jax is…
…2 members almost getting in a play fight at member lunch.
I think that CoWork Jax would be great for a person who wants to…
…grow their business and do things in a more innovative, less traditional way. It is also for the person who wants to have the structure and community of a 9 to 5 job, but wants to work on their own. I also think that it might be great for people who are just out of college and are in need of a community to bounce ideas off of.
My coworkers are better than yours because…
…everyone is really nice and funny and we all work really hard, but we have a really good time doing it.
