So, I'm Cory and I'm jumping into inter-workings of Darby Comm pretty quickly. My first day I was definitely a little nervous, but was instantly put at ease by welcoming smiles and bright greetings from the gals and a few wet kisses from Zig, Coral's pooch. I have to say, any boss who brings her dog into work is cool by me. In the past I've always worked for very large corporations filled with suits and red tape so it was an awesome feeling to walk into an office and see brightly painted walls, Chaco sandals, and stability balls.
January 3rd and the Darby Comm team is back to work. We had a wonderful break and returned to the office with renewed energy and optimism for another great year.

I can see it in their smiles and I can sense it in their spirit, they are ready to rock and roll.
