CREEC-Colorado visits CREEC-California

Earlier this week, Tim and I got the chance to check out CREEC’s California office.  Come along for a quick tour!  Julie Wilensky, Director of our California office, and Executive Director Tim Fox in front of the building where our California office is housed.

CREEC’s office is in the infinitely-hip WeWork building, which offers individual offices,
