Today We Honour Our Favorite Team Member at Direct Access Digital

Every morning everyone on the team walks in and smiles as she and her high-end, trademark silver coat walks by confidently.

We all wish to have her life. She works hard and plays even harder.

Plus, on occasion she even gets rid of garbage. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, loves her.

She can be very competitive and has won numerous awards. She has serious skills.

Our only complaint is that she sometimes naps on the job.

Definitely the office pet.
