Remembering Bobbi McCaffery
Last week, an amazing member of our team lost her battle with cancer. Bobbi McCaffery, CLIC's Common Metrics senior trainer and coordinator, was diagnosed with colon cancer last September and bravely fought it every day since. Bobbi was an incredible teammate and an all-around inspiring person. We are so grateful for our time with her and for the energy and positivity she brought to our team. Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones.
