Yin-Si Yang

Yin-Si works alongside veteran Daisy Gilbert at the front desk, and theirs are the first faces you see when you come into the office. “As part of client services, I get to be one of the first people that all our clients interact with,” Yin-Si said. “That means I have the privilege of helping to answer questions, solve problems, and schedule appointments.” She said she enjoys both the people she works with and the clients she serves. “I love that no one is afraid to have fun with their job,” she said. “All the people here, including clients, are great to work with and I like that every day is different.” When she’s not in the office, Yin-Si enjoys cooking and designing and sewing costumes and clothes.
