Ms. Washburn is a cupcake-baking rockstar who delights in brass instruments. Clients and co-workers marvel at her effective use of multicolored sticky notes and willingness to take on any task thrown her way. Meanwhile, she takes pleasure in whipping up costumes and is thrilled her daughters are theatre and music nuts like she is.
Among her pet peeves are people who have the audacity to park beneath “no parking” signs. She is also averse to putting away laundry and the smell of tuna salad.
Not primarily known as “the funny one,” she refers to herself as “the comedian’s arm candy” when with her husband — making her all the more proud when she shoots off a zinger of her own.
And, she's Google Analytics certified, to boot!
