Meet the Staff: Ambrosia Brown, Office Manager
Ambrosia Brown is the SNS Outfitter & Guides office manager – a title that doesn’t begin to describe the myriad of responsibilities that she handles. We recently sat down with Ambrosia to discuss her role in the SNS office and what consumes her time during the hunting season and throughout the year. Here is what she had to say:
Q: How long have you worked for SNS Outfitter & Guides and how did you begin?
Ambrosia: I have been working for SNS for four years now, but I’ve known Sy for about 10 years. The job started as helping in the office with filing and some other odds and ends. It just continued to grow from there.
Q: What are your responsibilities now?
Ambrosia: My primary responsibilities include sales, booking, handling paperwork and license applications for clients, preparing the schedule for the fall hunts and communicating dates and travel plans with hunters. I answer a lot of questions from clients leading up to their trips, and I now do the grocery shopping for the camps, making sure each camp is stocked with everything we need. I have also taken a greater role in designing the brochure and flyers, and I’m even working on a new website that we are planning to launch in November.
Q: What do you enjoy most about this job?
Ambrosia: I like getting to work with our clients and help them prepare for their hunts. These folks are coming from all over the country and even internationally and it’s fun to be a part of their adventure.
I also enjoy the fact that every day is different. I’m never doing the same task for very long. This job certainly never gets boring and the work is rarely monotonous.
Q: What is the most challenging part of your job?
Ambrosia: Because each day is different, it is difficult to stick to an agenda. Items are constantly being re-prioritized and I have to remain flexible. Something might come to my attention that needs an immediate response, and I have to be able to adjust on the fly. That is particularly true during the hunting season.
Q: Before working for SNS, did you have experience hunting?
Ambrosia: Yes, my dad hunted and I was raised on wild game. I grew up doing a lot of waterfowl and upland hunting, and I also loved fishing as a kid. While I didn’t do a lot of big game hunting, it is certainly a big part of my growing up and family culture.
Q: Are you able to hunt during the season, and what else do you enjoy outside of work?
Ambrosia: Yes, I am able to hunt despite our crazy schedule during the season. We have weekends when we can go. Fortunately in Wyoming, we’re very close to so much hunting opportunity. It’s right here in our backyard.
I spend most of my free time hanging out with my family and kids. I have three kids who are getting more involved in sports, so we enjoy watching their sporting events. And my son turns 12 this year, which means he can now hunt. That is a fun milestone.
