Liane Buggage is the Assistant Retail Manager at our Lake Charles store. She loves to bake – and we love it when she brings her yummy treats to work! Liane and her hubby have two kitties, Simon & Houdini. Both were, on separate occasions, found wandering around our warehouse and Liane brought them home to live a very spoiled, happy life! Liane’s human family is growing, too, as her parents welcome their first grandbaby Rory – can we predict more spoiling, Aunt Liane? Liane has been part of the Sabine team since 2008 after working at Sonic, doing everything under the sun including making those fabulous onion rings. A graduate of LaGrange High, Liane likes to read, make blankets and tinker on the computer. Her idea of the perfect day is to cuddle up with a good book and a hot drink with a cat on her lap.
Connie Sellers Chauvin is the Retail Store Manager at our Kaliste Saloom Road store. Connie is the life of the party and loves spending time with her family and friends. If you go to see the band Bag-of-Donuts, you are very likely to run into Connie. (Get her to introduce you to the band!) Connie lives in Maurice and went to Maurice High. She is devoted to her daughter Shawna and her two grandchildren, Landon & Lily. Connie has been with Sabine Pools for 13 years, after working for Bacque Pools and Hollier’s Drug Store. Connie has a dog named Squirrel (funny!) and her hobbies include painting and growing exotic hibiscus. In her picture, you can see a couple of her very popular painted pallets. Ask her to show you her other designs – talented lady!
