When she is not working, Joules enjoys, swimming, climbing 14K foot mountains in Colorado and running at the Austin Greenbelt.
Jacques' key responsibility as Studio Greeter is to announce newcomers and herd them to our reception area or the conference room. Once he has guided the individuals to their designated area, Jacques stays vigilant for the next incoming client or delivery professional. Jacques also endorses recycling. You can often find him scoping out the bins to see if anyone has dropped food containers that were not properly cleaned. In his off time, Jacques loves the great outdoors and dreams of being an agility competitor.
