What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Heart of SWOS

Our staff are at the heart of SWOS--one might say that they truly ARE the heart of SWOS. Without our inspiring and inspired staff, there wouldn’t be a “SWOSiverse.” Getting to know who they are is important, we believe, to understand what SWOS is all about!
