Our employee spotlight this week is on Janet Douglas! Janet works in our back accounting office with Deborah, Lauren, Renee, (and Eloise!) Janet is our accountant and we truly don't know what we would do without her! She keeps us calm when things get crazy, and always has a smile on her face. She brought a sign to work a couple years ago that says "you don't have to be crazy to work here... we'll train you!" Isn't that the truth!!
