CFO - (Chief Food Officer)

Snickers has been an integral member of HCP since its inception. She has mastered the art of detecting the smallest morsel of food in the most far-reaching corners of the office. You can find her trotting around in search of her next delicious snack while simultaneously offering under-desk nose nudges of encouragement. Her side-eye glares at lunch time are enough to make a grown man fall to his knees and offer up his entire meal in exchange for the tiniest bit of sweet puppy love. She is a great resource for local restaurant recommendations, as she has sampled much of the cuisine on her daily walks around town. Her favorite work day past times include napping and dreaming the day away under her dad’s desk, afternoon walks on the Legacy Trail, lunch outings with the company and leading Monday morning meetings from under the conference table. You can find her relaxing in one of her many sunbeam spots or taking up at least one half of her parents’ king size bed at home. For inquiries, please submit your top treats and Snickers will be in touch if your offering is deemed worthy of a meeting.
