This month we are featuring a special team member expecting the arrival of her first child! Meet Khemara Ham-Sy
Khemara was born in a refugee camp in Thailand as her parents migrated across the globe from Cambodia to America in search of freedom and the American dream. Such an amazing journey! We decided to catch up with Khemara before she left on maternity leave, to give you a chance to learn more about her.

A: December 2010. We are having a boy and we are very excited!
