I worked with Salona at a previous employer for about a year. From what I could pick up, she is someone who loves to share from their knowledge. A straight forward person. She is very intelligent, she can quickly make sense of something and make a plan for it in a short period of time. From my experience working with her, I was just amazed by her intelligence and I would like to think she probably excelled at maths and science during her high school years.
