Best of 2016, featuring Sara

Context: Our marketing team asked each employee to put together a “Best of 2016” list. It’s a vague, 100% personal, unique list that helps you-the customer- get to know our staff and see a little bit about what we’ve been reading, watching, playing or doing when we’re not behind the counter making your coffee. The following is the list given to us by Sara! Sara is friendly and joyful. She works mostly afternoons and weekends when she’s not busy helping produce a show in NWC’s theatre department. You should ask her about Alice in Wonderland sometime. Also if you didn’t know, Douglas is her brother.
