Business Team Spotlight: Meet Danielle Perrigo

It takes a lot of planning and coordination to support the variety of operations at the Thompson Center. Our Business Team is one of the behind-the-scenes groups that makes it all possible! Over the next few weeks, we’ll be spotlighting the members of this team and looking into how they keep the Thompson Center running. In this spotlight, we will meet Danielle Perrigo, an Office Support Assistant IV for the Thompson Center.

I started working at the Thompson Center at the beginning of this year.

I grew up in Columbia but now live in Hallsville.
