Most of our Innovators on Demand™ have been with us since before we launched our new division — Susan Brooks is one of them! She joined ttcInnovations as a contractor in 2016, and with over 25 years of experience in the learning industry, she has truly been an asset to our team. With the recent launch of our staff augmentation division, she now extends her skills as a contingent worker and acts as Extra Hands You Don’t Have to Hold™! Here at ttcInnovations, we work primarily as a virtual team, so this introduction is just as exciting for us to learn some fun facts about Susan!
