Welcome to the first installment of 'The Team' - a series dedicated to exploring the people behind Atria. Because we love getting to know our clients - their background, stories, and passions - we wanted to share ours with you! It's a chance to have a look inside our brains & see what gets us fired up, and also what superpower we wish we had. Check back every week for a new post featuring one of our team members!
