Meet Charlotte McLemore, who joined the Ambassador family late in 2022. Raised in Louisiana, her four brothers decided early in life that “Charlie” (as she now prefers to be called) was the best nickname for their big sister!
Graduating from LSU with a degree in Business Administration, Charlie went on to earn her master’s degree in Accounting at the University of Phoenix and prior to joining the Accounting team, worked in the utilities sector for many years.
In His ordination, the Lord brought Charlie to Ambassador at a pivotal moment in her life. Her husband (Lou) of more than 30 years, having battled kidney disease for some time, suddenly entered eternity in June of 2023. The couple were a lively pair who both enjoyed the gift of hospitality, their lives marked by a bright spirit and easy laughter. (They met while commuting on a city bus and as they say, the result was “My Fare Lady.”) In addition to the team at AAA, Charlie’s family includes three children and two grandchildren.
An avid user of a “Cricut” machine, Charlie calls herself a “Craftinator” and “Villager.” At Christmas, her Santa’s village takes two weeks of steady set-up!
And … her lifelong goal is to learn the keyboard sufficiently to “play more than just Frere Jacques” on the piano at home.
For more about Charlie, we asked her to fill in the blanks below!
The best sound in the world is . . . “Food’s ready!”
On Saturday morning, I’m likely to . . . Craftinate (defined as avoiding or delaying necessary household chores i.e., laundry, cleaning, etc. to work on some craft project. I’m a super craftinator around Christmas time)
One place I hope to visit someday is . . . Fairfax, Alaska, to see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).
Happy memories always hit me with the aroma of . . . lightly rain soaked grass. (Summertime was always extremely hot where I grew up. It was always cooler after the rain. Everyone would go outside, thankful for the reduced temperature and the most potent aroma was the smell of the grass). A freshly mowed lawn has the same effect on me. 😊
