We are talking today with our Vice President of Design, Jessica Vertin. She helps us problem solve all of our biggest design dilemmas and keeps us laughing throughout our work day. Jessica is not only our "go-to" gal in the office but she is a wife and mother of 2 little girls. She somehow is able to manage both our design team and her family at home with a great attitude and smile on her face. We are so grateful to have her on our team!
