As admins we find purpose in helping others and we love saying “Yes” to requests.

A huge congratulations to our founder, Lauren Bradley, for winning the OfficeNinjas All-Star Award. “
Lauren Bradley has had a truly impressive career. She’s been a marketing manager, a professor, an interactive media designer, a salesperson, and a food blogger. And all those incredible experiences have led her to her current role: as Office Manager at the Manhattan-based video distribution company DramaFever. When asked about where she sees herself in five years, she said: “I feel like I’m riding a river and each new experience takes me down a new stream.”
Lauren Bradley is the reason I wake up and come to work in the mornings. She was the first person to make me feel like part of the team when I first joined the company, she continually answers all my very dumb questions with patience and positivity, she plans AMAZING company-wide events for us to all relax and blow off steam, she finds awesome charities for us to support every quarter, and as if that wasn’t amazing enough, she recently created an office newsletter for us to always find all kinds of little tidbits of useful info. The company would basically collapse without her.Co-worker Nomination
