Message from Melissa
As you are aware, Andy has left the building! Well, actually he has just moved to the other side of the floor. Never fear, while we will miss him greatly, Courtney and I are holding down the fort. Just to keep you informed, we have no idea about who will take over or when they will advertise the position. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns please let me know.
Have a fantastic weekend.
