Much of my team on Thorn 13 worked remotely in 2021, but I remember one particular day when more of us happened to be in the office than usual. Being with my colleagues again meant so much to me. The opportunity to be together in person, share our stories, and smile — even under our masks — felt deeply meaningful to all of us. I draw so much of my inspiration from the incredible people I have the privilege of working with every day. I hope in the year ahead we can all find ways to connect as a community. It’s hard when many of us are in different places, working remotely or on different schedules, but it’s heartwarming to be together when we have those opportunities.
