by Douglass Tinker, on January 31, 2022

Each month, we highlight one of our employees by doing a virtual "20 Questions" with them, some of which are about their work with Reusability, and others of which help us get to know them better. This month our employee spotlight is on our Strategic Partnership Coordinator (SPC), Caroline Coffee
