Kim Bridges

Also known as Giver and Taker of Money and She Who Makes All Things Happen, office administrator Kim Bridges once worked in shipping operations, so steering the GFP HQ mothership comes easy. Kim is also a talented editor and writer in her own right who just did her third round of NaNoWriMo, penning coming-of-age fiction. Yet Kim’s organizational mind is also just the ticket to herd this bunch of arty cats. Patient and quick to smile, Kim can troubleshoot your printer problem (going round 9 on that @%$#!! Xerox), tame QuickBooks, and make sure you have the very specific pen you love so much (when Ingrid has chewed on all of yours), all at the same time.
