Her hobbies include doing her best impression of an Olympic hurdler during zoomies and walking on Mom in the morning just in case she forgets about breakfast. Her favorite toys are boxes, socks, and catnip. She greets me at the door, loves belly rubs and naps, and is a complete weirdo.” ~ Tori Kushner, Mechanical Engineer

She is named after the Norse goddess Freyja, which in old Norse translates to Lady.” ~ Jason Barry, Controls Engineer
“Maggie is our first ever pet (other than hamsters when our kids were little)! She is a Cavapoo ( ½ Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and ½ Mini Poodle).

“This is Paxton at 7 months old, relaxing in the grass after chasing sticks and bumble bees. Luckily, he was only able to catch the sticks! He loves hiking and splashing around in the water.

We all feel much safer when he is on duty.” ~ Brenda Rose, Senior Control Systems Engineer

She’s still trying to figure out the shift key.” ~ Zack Baldwin, Mechanical Designer
