The office manager of Dresher’s. She is most often stuck with the job of herding cats. Like a tour manager for a reggae band, she has to keep to deadlines and the tough job of operating a business in the skids. She has a great sense of loyalty and is smart enough to know that her job rarely calls for black and white decisions. She’s cool but has the sucky job of being the adult in a business of childlike artists.
