What is one thing about you people would be surprised to know?
I am transgender! I do not go by my birth name, or she/her pronouns. Generally, I wear a button that says He/Him/His to display what pronouns I use. I am very happy and proud of this fact, and that Blue Sail is such a loving and understanding environment to work in.

What is your favorite thing to do in Conway?
Honestly, before I ever worked at Blue Sail, I loved to go and sit for hours to chat with the baristas, other customers, or do some work. It’s still one of my favorite places to work and meet awesome people!
