Employee Spotlight: Katharine Sleeman
Katharine (in our design department) was nominated for Employee of the Month in September by five different coworkers for taking on an additional workload, not complaining, working hard and producing excellent work, always with a smile. I interviewed her to find out what she enjoys about working for Kopke, what makes her tick, and what activities she enjoys outside of work.
