As we all know and experienced first hand, life during the COVID-19 pandemic has been anything but normal. With multiple daily teleconferences, remote meetings, desktop VTC’s and overall disconnection becoming the norm, the ability to build and maintain connections became more important than ever. Luckily for us here at Team TATRC, we have an outstanding team of Office Administrators who stepped up to the challenge and have continued to save the day, every day, keeping our team up and running and ready to tackle the many challenges of life during COVID.
