What is your favorite part about #WFH?
I don’t get interrupted as much while working and I can play music on my speaker, rather than wear headphones. I also like that I don’t have to worry about packing my food for the day — I can just go into the kitchen and make myself a midday smoothie if I feel like it.
What is the most challenging part about #WFH?
I like being able to look at digital samples physically and being able to walk from one department to another to discuss the art with the CSR or Sales Rep. I have to rely on photos now, which is just not the same.

What is your biggest take away from #WFH?
Teamwork and communication are even more important now because we are adapting to a new lifestyle. I’ve learned it has a lot of plusses while being pregnant – my home office is right across from the restroom and a short walk to the kitchen!
