We are thrilled to pay tribute to our November Associate Spotlight, Tracy Sapp. Tracy started at Edafio almost a decade ago when the company had around 20 employees. She has held multiple roles and is the glue for ALL of the teams we support. She tackles new challenges and exhibits grace under pressure, all while helping us stay connected, engaged and productive.
The comings and goings of staff are a part of every dynamic organization; therefore, it can be challenging to get to know our coworkers better as people. We have to be mindful that our company culture thrives on our exceptional people and their outstanding technical skills. As such, we are finding that our periodic interviews with associates allow us to acknowledge and celebrate the beautiful life stories, extraordinary professional accomplishments, and even the little quirks that make us uniquely beautiful human beings.
We hope you find each Edafio associate story as inspiring as we do in gathering and sharing them.

Everyone at Edafio has a story about why they joined the team. What’s yours?
I was looking for a new job because another company had acquired the company I had worked at for 16 years. My husband Trey was working at Edafio and sent me a text message asking if I wanted to work here. I wasn’t sure they would want spouses here, but they hired me; the rest is history. 😊
