Maintaining the inclusive culture we were founded upon is not without effort.  It’s one of our core values, and something we’re focused on as we grow,” said Lindsey Graves, Chief Operating Officer.  “Every day we see these engagement efforts, like our twice-annual team building activities, paying dividends to morale.  Our employees have fun, like one another, and we are moving the company forward.  It’s very exciting!”
