Do you have that one go-to person in your office? Dear God, I hope so. In case you are wondering, it is that person you run to when your full-color proposal gets jammed in the printer six minutes before clients walk in the door. It is the person you stealthily email when your cubicle mate is chewing gum SUPER loud. It is the person who will drink wine with you after a long day, who will calm your nerves before a big presentation, who will pull the proverbial rabbit out of a hat when necessary. Meet Tara Reeb. She has been called “the glue that keeps Epicurean going,” but she’s way more than that. With a quick wit, a (borderline obsessive) love of both country music and her dog, and a die-hard goal to figure out how to take over the social media world, Tara is a diamond without the rough..
