"Behind the Scenes Magic"
Katie provides office management and organizational assistance to make the whole experience better for employees, clients, and everyone involved.
Capi is a member of the therapy team. Capi was born in May of 2013 and has been an active part of the therapy process since late June of 2013. Sometimes her involvement is limited to looking cute while she's sleeping, sometimes cuddling with clients, and sometimes playing with toes.
Capi loves to meet new people, but if you prefer, she is equally at home out of sight in her 'den'.
Capi works with Anna Goeke
