Free-spirited. Sweet (and salty). Bubbly. Wicked sense of humor – just a few of the words Talitha’s co-workers use to describe her. Since joining MIS in November 2017, Talitha has brought a sense of fun and passion to our work family. She has a kind heart (and a picture to prove it). Plus she can yodel.
