Meet Emily

My name means “industrious, striving.” I’m good with the first part; it’s the latter that I’m rethinking. For as long as I can remember my Mom has said, “Go slow, Em”, which is fitting as I spent much of my life early on literally “running” from thing to thing. A few more credits here, a […]

Meet Callie

It is common knowledge at my office that if a day involves thematic attire or food, I am likely the instigator or the first one in line. Celebrations are a part of who I am, be it a birthday, a new baby or the fact that it’s Friday. To me, great food and fellowship provide […]
