PF Peeps is our special way of spotlighting individual Pathfinders personalities at work and play, an avenue to discover things about our peeps. We all have unique personalities – and believe ours warrant sharing!

Jean-Paul is known as our Batman – the one that gets us out of jams with our computers and digital issues – and can fix things with a magic turn of his Leatherman tool. His helpfulness and troubleshooting in our office is appreciated by all.
