I’m thankful for the development opportunities Maren and Jeremy provide because I feel like I’m constantly learning and developing my skills – something that is vital to my existence!” – Shaley McKeever

That’s great news for us because our team just so happens to really like each other.

“Every day I walk the halls of RBM, I am thankful to simply hold a position here and grow professionally doing something I enjoy. I’m thankful for the valuable feedback from not only the two Big People Upstairs (Maren and Jeremy) but also to be able to collaborate with each member and watch our projects blossom into something incredible. I never thought at 22 I would be developing my own department with a super cool groupa creative minds. Not to mention the very generous work/life balance perks we have the privilege of enjoying here. And also, I wear leggings to work sometimes. Which is tight.” – Noelle Murphy

“I am thankful that everyone here takes pride in their work and works their butts off!” – Maren Hogan
