Headshot 272x300 - First Impressions Last

Before moving to Philadelphia earlier this year, Katie had spent much of her time earning a living by making a difference. She has made a lasting impression on the Philly Temps Team by being professional, polite and positive and we are excited to get to know her a little better.
