Happy Holidays from the Flourish team! The holiday season is one of our favorite times of the year, so to celebrate, we’ve collectively chosen to take our festivities to the next level. We know you’ve gotten to know our team in many settings. Whether it was at a networking event, a workshop, or in our partnership, we know you’ve met us before. However, we’re introducing you to a different side of the Flourish team- the festive side. With that being said, are you ready to meet the team, holiday edition?

As we say, “What can’t she do?!” Although her Christmas wish list doesn’t include a Red Ryder Carbine Action 200-shot Range Model BB gun, we’re sure “The big man! The head honcho! The connection!” will bring her everything she deserves this year and more!

Get to know Ethan, also known as Buddy the Elf
It’s time to introduce you to the one and only, Ethan, our Media Specialist! Papa Elf once said, “Elves love to tell stories. I bet you didn’t know that about elves.” Although Ethan isn’t necessarily a real elf, we can say without a doubt that, like his holiday character, Ethan is an amazing storyteller and is as passionate about his work, family, and sweets as Buddy the Elf is about Christmas, his loved ones, and candy! Cheers to another year on the Nice list!
