Luci

Head of Office Wellness

Luci discovered her love for numbers when she would count her tennis balls each night after a long day of playing. If one was missing and her numbers didn’t “reconcile,” it would drive her crazy! Her love of accounting was born. In addition to tennis balls, Luci loves long walks with her mom, her grandparent’s pool and stylish bandanas. She’s no fan of baths but she’s a good girl so she takes them anyway.
