Meet your team
I had the pleasure of a strong professional community and jovial teammates walking into the Small Door environment. Appreciating that everyone has their own strong suits and taking time to learn from each others' strengths became an enriching experience. I cherish the acknowledgment, validation, and the work and life balance I achieved from being here.
