2020 was certainly not anyone’s favorite year. The way many of us live and work changed totally, and that was no different for us here at Alley. We usually take this time to share some of our successes and exciting announcements for the year, but instead we’ll be looking back at some ways we, and our clients, tried to make the world a little better in 2020.
Pattie Reaves is a Principal User Experience Developer here at Alley, but she does not spend all her time behind a screen. In this Alley Spotlight, we talk to Pattie about how she got into competitive running and what the training process has taught her.
