A Year of Gratitude

As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday and get ready to spend time with loved ones, we can’t help but look back and reflect on all we have to be thankful for.

First off, we’re undeniably thankful for our clients. We wouldn’t be here without them. Their missions are our missions, and the challenges that they bring to us on a daily basis are what excites us about coming to work every day. We know the past few years have been difficult, and we don’t take it lightly that they continue to trust us and engage us, whether for their second or sixteenth year in a row.

Since April 2020, we’ve been lucky to add eight staff members to our team. In 2021, we’ve welcomed Caitlin Burns, Jackson Griffey, Anthony Nerantzis, Steven Smith, and EC Wheatley. In 2020, we welcomed Caroline Ponseti, Colin Hensel, and Christian Stellakis to our team. We couldn’t be more grateful for our new additions as well as our entire team and the dedication they bring to their jobs each day.

Beyond what happens in our “virtual walls,” we’re thankful for the personal milestones that many of our coworkers have experienced since March of 2020.

This year we celebrated:

  • Two summer weddings: Ashley Oates, June 5, 2021, and Anthony Nerantzis, June 26, 2021.
  • Two new babies: Hallie Beasley welcomed a baby boy and Todd Van Etten welcomed a baby girl.
  • Four new furry friends: Sharon Copeland’s cat Wicket, Ashley Oates’ dog Trixie, Julianne Haggerty’s dog Holden, and Matt Well’s dog Penuche.
  • Four new Homes: Ashley Oates, Sharon Copeland, CC Jaeger, and Caroline Ponseti all purchased their first homes.

We’re thankful when our team celebrates these exciting life developments. 

The milestones of the past year make us hopeful for the future. Catapulting off the hiring from the past two years, we plan to further expand and grow our team over the coming year. Finally, we’re excited about the possibility of being back together in person with you and our entire team in the new year. Until then, we wish you a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving.
