Our Home Office vibe is exactly how it sounds- it feels like home. It's exciting because you never know what daily surprises are in store-Kendra could be walking around in a unicorn costume giving everyone hugs or our Fun Committee may be hosting a happy hour in the cafe to relieve the stress of a busy week. This place is truly one of a kind!
