Congratulations July Employee of the Month: Erika Portalatin

Erika has great ideas for programming in YS. The challenges given during National Invention Month were creative and fun. She completes tasks on time, promptly answers emails, and is a team player. She may be small but she is mighty. I appreciate her work ethic and her cheerful nature. You can tell that she enjoys her job, which is nice to see.
