Tabler of the Week: Mike Siegel


Why Do We Have a Tabler of the Week?

We periodically interview one of our amazing co-workers to highlight on our culture blog.  A great culture is 100% about the people that drive it.  We come from different places, backgrounds, and experiences and all add a lot of spice to this workplace.

Talk about your favorite Core Value: Every Day is a School Day. I’m like Johnny Five. I need input https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pj-qBUWOYfE

Talk about your favorite Social Tables event: Family Weekend. I had the pleasure of being on the committee and see the process, the things you need to consider and how much work is required to pull an event like that off. My fellow Tablers were so kind and welcoming with my parents, which was awesome.
