40 Questions with: Adrienne Halford, AAE

It’s time for another Blanc & Otus New Hire Interview to introduce our AAE Adrienne Halford! We gave Adrienne the classic Blanc & Otus welcome by flooding her with a series of unusual questions. She humored us and filled us in on all her likes and dislikes.

This USC grad commutes everyday from Sacramento but the time sure flies when she’s blasting One Direction. In her free time she likes to bake pies, play Minecraft and hang with her two cool cats Ellie and Chavy (another cat person in the office – score!).
